Print & Apply
Print & Apply systems are created for automated processes in production lines. A standard Print & Apply system includes a barcode scanner to identify the packaged product, a print & apply machine to create the bar-code label, conveyor for inducting, labeling and rerouting of the product, a verification scanner to read the printed label, software to merge data and communicate with the host system.
Various Print & Apply machines exist, each with different functions. Century can help source a system that fits your throughput, in-and-out feeding operations, and size limitations. We’ll implement it within your current warehouse setup, or integrate it as part of a larger automation installation.
Print & Apply systems allow distribution centers to send out products faster by minimizing operator handling and processing times within their facilities. Eliminating or minimizing operator ‘touches’ can improve a company’s throughput. Print & Apply systems also benefit companies who have products that are time stamped, serialized, or require a variation in every label by processing those specifications through the label machine.
