ID Technology Offers a Zero Downtime Label Printer Applicator System

Tuesday, May 14, 2019

FORT WORTH, Texas, April 9, 2019 – ID Technology, a ProMach product brand, offers a solution to eliminate production downtime due to media replenishment and routine maintenance of label printer applicators.
The Model 255 Zero Downtime system consists of two Model 255 Label Printer Applicators on a sturdy mounting frame. The two labelers operate in a parent-child mode – one is the primary labeler and when taken off-line, the system automatically switches to the secondary (child) head. When the primary head is placed back into service, the labeling switches back to the primary labeler.
The Model 255 part of the top selling line of printer applicators manufactured by ID Technology. This label printer applicator is built on the Centerline-Modularity™ concept which optimizes uptime and reduces cost. There are a wide range of application modules to accompany these applicators, as well as, a choice of leading OEM print engines. 
Designed for batch labeling, Zero Downtime control is internal to the Model 255. The only hardware required is an ethernet cable to link the heads together.  
To ensure there are no missed labels and no double labels when switching heads, the software tracks products through the two labelers. This can be combined with height/speed compensation on product delay settings and label inspection results, to make sure all products are correctly labeled.
There are two modes of operation. In normal mode, the primary head will try to label all packages and the secondary head will label anything that is missed. In alternate mode, the primary head will label every other package as long as the secondary head is online; otherwise it will try to label every product.  The secondary head labels any item that is missed by the primary head.
To make label roll changes simple and safe, our “service position” mount allows the heads to swing away from the conveyor to give complete access when loading labels or cleaning the printheads.
