Weigh Price Label – Print & Apply
Industrial automation can be found throughout all areas within a production line. Usually, weigh price labeling or label print and apply is located toward the often overlooked but critically important end of production line operations. Whether it be packages of chicken, cases of consumer goods, motor oil, electronics or vegetables, printing applications are required. Typically, the weigh price labeling and label print and apply applications require input and data from an in-motion checkweigher to populate the labels with the correct information, weight, lot number, etc.
Our AP Dataweigh in-motion labeling and barcode systems are seamlessly integrated with and communicate 100% natively across Allen Bradley / Rockwell based manufacturing lines. Our machines also collect and send data bi-directionally to the Rockwell Cloud for aggregating, statistical reporting, and more when used in conjunction with the Rockwell Cloud Platform. This turns a traditional print and apply or weigh price labeling machine into a critical data collection and reporting device at the end of the manufacturing line, where data like this once sourced can hugely contribute to running a lean operation and controlling line OOE..
Our ability to deliver what they are asking for in a totally open manner as opposed to the typical locked “black box systems” means that spare parts come from local suppliers, headquarters can view real time data on all of their production lines, and line / production managers can see their production results in real time on their smart devices. Then, they are free to utilize whichever labeling system they currently use to integrate into the checkweigher for transmission of weight and other information such as lot number, date, barcode and more. With these new capabilities, you and your enterprise gain unparalleled access to both real-time and historical information that can unlock increased efficiencies and productivity improvements in ways never before possible. The integration of the Cloud Platform on a subscription basis further allows for historical data to be recalled whether or not the facility utilizes the Historian platform.
