Industry overview

Future supply chain developments shape identification requirements for


manufacturers

Regulatory tracing requirements, especially in food and pharma,


oblige manufacturers to include ever more information on
product packaging, cartons, cases and pallets

Counterfeiting problems and brand protection ask for


mass serialization of products and RFID encoding capability

Adding to this need for individual product labeling are increasing numbers of
SKUs (Extension of Product ranges) and distribution centers (Increase of global
logistic networks)

Increase of automation level and control of production through central control


systems
As much of that data is variable, only Print & Apply machinery is
able to provide a practical solution to these requirements

RIS, Printer Systems Europe

Features

Multi-tasking high performance system

Rapid 32-bit CPU (400 MHz MIPS) enables printing, dispensing and
preparation of data for next label simultaneously

Ideally suited for applications with constantly changing print


content, like dispatch labels

Easily integrateable into production machinery through right- and


left hand versions

Handling great amount of out- and inputs at the same time

Non-stop printing provided by fast image building and multi-tasking opera

Features

RIS, Printer Systems Europe


Multitude of connectivity options

Best-of-class connectivity (Standard Ethernet) enables easy


integration, e.g. into central control systems

Fast data transfer facilitates


linking to external database or network

Remote, rotatable display enables integration into


packaging lines or pallet-labelers

Stand-alone functionality and applicator control option


through internal PLC, firmware and applicator interface
no external PLC necessary

Applicator Interface provides further signals, - additive to the


standard IO board

Features

Extremly fast and sharp printing

26

Near-edge printhead allows for 400 mm/sec print speed

Excellent print quality through 12 dots/mm print head resolution for


even smallest fonts, bar codes and 2D-codes

Highest label output on market


(50 mm x 50 mm label = 21.000 labels/h)

With exact foil combination, all types of materials can be printed


onto:
Self-adhesive labels, card and synthetic materials up to
240g/sqm

Highest print speed with largest label output and best print quality on the market

RIS, Printer Systems Europe

Features

Less operation down-time

Less downtime using large capacity supply rolls:


Foil length of 1000 m,
Label rolls of 300 mm diameter

Quick change of printhead through Plug&Play-functionality:


- no need for special tools or deployment of technician
- 5 min to change the printhead

Increase of machine time resulting in less operation down-time


Foil Saving

Reduced cost of ownership through highly effective foil saving mechanism

Starting after 5 mm unprinted area

Reduced friction as printhead jumps over gap between labels

Foil Saving Calculator:

Industry-leading concept of foil saving

During application of printed label

stops when label (1) has been
dispensed. Operation continues
with next print signal

Layout is shifted by distance from


dispensing edge to printhead: as
printing on label (2) is just possible
after 18-23 mm, a different total
