For label printing, ALcode can be equipped with various thermal printer units from the Japanese manufacturer SATO (or compatible products). These units have been developed specifically to be used on automatic applicators: print resolutions of 8 or 12 dots/mm and print speeds of up to 300mm/sec, available in 104 or 152 mmexpandable print widths.
In each ALcode model, the mechanical, pneumatic and electronic systems have been designed to meet the typical requirements of machines operating in an industrial environment, matching reliability with ease of use, accessibility and interchangeability.
ALcode print-apply systems have been developed with a range of standard components which allow them to apply labels in any position and at virtually any line speed.
The devices which may be added to the basic configuration of the Alcode label applicator in order to solve specific problems include:
ALcode print & apply systems for self-adhesive labels can interface with a computer and apply labels immediately after printing, in any position, on both stationary and moving products (also at high speeds).
