Print and Appply Applications
The automated print and apply of labels to cartons can create huge gains in productivity due to the capacity to handle up to 100 cartons per minute. Comprised of two primary elements: (a) the print engine which actually prints onto the label the necessary information and barcodes, and (b) the applicator. The applicator applies the label to the package while the package is in motion by a mechanical roll-on, tamp-on, or blow-on type process. During operation, the WCS controls the conveying, tracking, labeling and validation of every package to ensure the correct packing slip or shipping label is precisely applied in seconds.
