Synchronization issues with traditional print & apply systems lead to mislabeling problems as well as difficulties with installation and support. Traditional systems are challenged with handling boxes of different sizes as well as placing labels on different faces of pallets and boxes.
Customers facing any of these issues may want to consider looking at the new generation of robotic print & apply systems.
Specifically, the new robotic printer applicators based on the single Vanomation Controller overcome all these issues. The RPA2000 systems include a new collaborative robot cell and the Vanomation Controller. The key feature of the Vanomation Controller is that it combines barcode label data and the spatial placement data into a single data stream. This eliminates the possibility of mislabeling and makes installation and support very easy.
