RFID label printer/applicator


The new Model 5200 Corner-Wrap label printer/applicator combines label printing with a specially designed label applicator that affixes a single label around the corner of a carton. Is available with optional RFID print-encode engines that satisfy the emerging requirements of today's supply chain, the co. says. The print engines addresses various print speeds and resolutions. Standard thermal/thermal-transfer print engines produce text, bar codes and graphic images at 203 or 300 dpi; RFID models combine printing capabilities with the encoding and verification of RFID inlays to meet the specifications of EPC Gen 1 and Gen 2 protocols. The unit prints (or prints and RFID-encodes) labels in a next-out mode, automatically removing them from their liner and retaining them by vacuum on an integrated swing-arm-mounted pad. As a carton approaches, the pad gently applies the label to its front panel, then follows around the carton's corner and wipes the remaining portion of the label onto its adjacent side. The system handles labels up to 4x12 in. and will print and apply labels to a maximum of 15 cartons/min. The Model 5200 Corner-Wrap operates with the co.'s print/apply software, which the co. says simplifies label formatting, editing and printing.
