Coding specialist Interactive Coding Equipment (ICE) is launching a major breakthrough and significant advance in print and apply labelling technology, offering print speeds up to three times faster than traditional machines. The new ICE Vulcan print and apply labeller is the first of its type to print and directly apply the label to a pack – both traded unit boxes and shrinkwrap packs – in one continuous action without the need for a tamp applicator or compressed air. This means the machine can print at the speed of the line, even when packs are very closely spaced, without ever missing a pack. Key to the success of the Vulcan is its Intelligent Motion™ drive system, which has eliminated the friction drive operation found in other printer applicator technology. This delivers faster and more accurate labelling with no creasing or label dropping and no chance for labels to become trapped in the system. There are also fewer moving parts, which makes the system more reliable.The Vulcan incorporates a ‘solid state’ printhead mechanism – a unique feature for thermal label printers – which allows the force on the printhead to be controlled electronically with great accuracy, for enhanced performance and print quality and extended head life. The print head can also be removed and replaced in less than a minute for fast changeovers.
