ID Technology: Printer applicator for pallets
ID Technology’s 3-panel printer applicator is designed for the application of multiple labels to boxes or pallets at the same point in the production line.
As a pallet approaches the printer applicator a tamp assembly, with a label on the tamp pad, is extended. The tamp pad applies the label to the front panel of the pallet. The tamp assembly then retracts. As the pallet passes by the printer applicator, the tamp module applies a label to the side panel. Once the pallet has passed the tamp module, the tamp pad rotates towards the back panel and applies a label. Operators can select label application to one, two or three panels of pallets or cases.
