Norwood Marking Systems: Norwood Marking Systems: Thermal transfer printer
Norwood Marking Systems / Allen Coding Systems introduces the 53LT – a high performance, low cost thermal transfer printer that prints fixed and variable text and graphics.
Available in both intermittent and continuous motion models, Norwood / Allen’s new 53LT provides 300 dpi resolution, printer resident barcodes, cassette ribbon loading, large 600 meter ribbon capacity and best-in-class thermal print head. The 53LT can be equipped with an optional external Ethernet device to enable remote changeovers and the centralized control of multiple printers via plant-wide networks. The space-saving, two-component model offers a single connection point, minimizing space requirements and improving reliability. It can be easily integrated with a wide range of host equipment such as vertical- and horizontal-form-fill-seal systems, primary labelers, thermoformers and overwrapping equipment. The 53LT comes standard with an operator keypad and Windows-based full-featured label design software. The printer can mark labels and a variety of substrates for packaged products with expiration dates, product identification information, lot-batch numbers, company logos and more.
