Do one of these two scenarios occur in your end of line production? The Hidden Costs of End of Line Coding Whitepaper 1. In large character inkjet printers, the small nozzles become blocked by corrugated dust, glue and airborne contaminants common in case packing production environments. As a result, line operators may spend as long as 10 minutes performing purging and cleaning of the inkjet printer. 2. Or, the filters used to keep plant air clean and dry for your pneumatic labeler vacuum become clogged – requiring manual cleaning and readjusting to correct inconsistent air flow. Otherwise, you run the risk of part failure or inconsistent tamp pressure that could damage your product, drop labels before being applied, as well as contribute to wear and tear of the tamping mechanism. - Evaluate LCIJ options with a printhead auto-cleaning system. Best yet is an auto-cleaning feature that can be set to customer defined intervals so that regular cleaning cycles can be achieved without the need for manual intervention throughout use. - All-electric case labelers eliminate downtime related to routine adjustments of key air supported tools and machinery crucial to efficiency and precision, limiting routine adjustments and the possibility of actuator failure due to inconsistent air. - Labelers that utilizes servo motors enables gentle contact between the labelers and the product when applying labels, guarding against wear and tear. Saving money and time spent adjusting the machines.
