Printing can be direct thermal or thermal transfer at speeds up to 14 in./sec. A heavy duty, precision guillotine cutter cuts the tags to length while speed adjustable guide rollers automatically feed the tags directly into the industrial sewing system or other handling device at speeds up to 30/min. The guillotine cutter has a hardened steel blade and linear bearings for long lasting performance and precision cuts. Also, the SCOOP 6 features a pressurized housing that keeps airborne contaminants, such as dust, out of the equipment.
The unit’s versatile, modular print engine can print a maximum tag width of 6 in. with lengths from 7-12 in. Print resolutions of 203 dpi and 305 dpi are available. Maximum print speed for the 203 dpi is 14 in./sec., for 305 dpi it is 12 in./sec. Because the print engine is modular, it can be easily swapped to maintain system uptime.
Additionally, the SCOOP 6 is easy to adapt to varying production lines. The variable speed motor control of the guide rollers allows for fine tuning the tag transfer speeds—up to 80 ft./min.—to match bag sewing systems’ input speeds. The rugged industrial stand permits easy height adjustments as well as the ability to adjust the tag transfer angle to the bag feeder.
