Videojet: Print & apply labeling system
By incorporating Intelligent Motion technology, Videojet’s 9550 LPA (Label Printer Applicator) system for case coding operations is precisely and electronically controlled, helping to eliminate unscheduled downtime and achieve throughput of up to 150 packs/min. for typical 4-in. x 6-in. GS1 barcode labels.
The 9550 with Direct Apply places the label onto the pack without the need for a tamp or air blast applicator. The 9550’s direct drive system with Intelligent Motion technology, feeds and places labels accurately without the use of manual adjustments, clutches, or nip rollers.
Only two operator touches are now required to manage job selection and web changeover, complemented by a collapsible mandrel to ensure quick label changes. The Direct Drive system with Intelligent Motion technology controls the entire label path, ensuring web tension is maintained from start to finish, irrespective of speed or label size.
The 9550 Direct Apply system removes the need for complex applicators for mainstream top or side label applications, reducing the number of labels being incorrectly applied or mangled during application. The 9550’s print engine also incorporates Intelligent Motion technology for precise ribbon feed and printhead control, helping ensure optimum print quality and improved performance. Through use of a clutch-less ribbon drive, the 9550 substantially reduces ribbon waste and improves printhead life.
The 9550 comes with the CLARiTY touch screen interface, which includes intuitive job selection, comprehensive feedback, and diagnostics to minimize human error. This single, easy-to-use interface provides manufacturers with built-in Code Assurance solutions.
