The AutoLabel 500 thermal transfer printer enables inline printing of graphics, text, and barcodes directly on the Autobag bag, eliminating the need for a separate labeling operation.
This printer supports both linear and 2D barcodes in a wide variety of symbology for maximum flexibility in product identification, tracking, and compliance labeling. Resident and downloadable fonts are ideal for lot or date codes and other human-readable product information. At the same time, high-resolution graphics printing allows visual verification and branding on the package as well. The AutoLabel 500 prints labels up to 4″ wide x 20″ long. Print registration is guaranteed within 1/16″ and Target Registration Control enables precision adjustments while the printer is running.
The tilting printhead makes changeover and printhead maintenance easy. A Ribbon Saver feature minimizes space between labels, eliminating waste. System-matched AutoLabel Thermal Transfer Ribbon resists scratching, smearing, and flaking for durable, crisp, high-quality labels. These thermal transfer ribbons extend printhead life and are specially made for use on poly bags.
The AutoLabel 500 uses AutoLabel Designer label creation software, making it easy to design and manage custom labels. Enhanced database connectivity enables networked label storage, sharing, and printing.
When paired with the Autobag 500 bagging system, a complete Print-n-Pack system is achieved.
