Robot-Assisted Pallet Labelling
The HERMA robot-assisted Print & Apply System facilitates the flexible labelling of pallets. The new HERMA solution is made up of very reliable and well-proven standard components from the HERMA modular system. These include winders and unwinders as well as a high-quality thermal transfer printer, such as the ZEBRA ZE500-6. A print resolution of up to 300 dpi ensures maximum legibility of the print image. The enhanced Print & Apply System ensures the fast, accurate, and highly flexible application of labels on two sides of the pallets.
Fully Automated Robotic Unloader for Distribution Centers
Honeywell announced a new, automated robotic solution for unloading a wide range of packages from truck trailers and shipping containers at distribution centers. The robotic unloader uses artificial intelligence to operate fully autonomously inside of a trailer, which significantly reduces the manual effort required to operate receiving docks for retail merchandise and parcel distribution centers. This new Honeywell Intelligrated smart robotics offering will help customers improve workplace safety, reduce staffing challenges, and minimize damage to packages.
Industrial Label Printers
AutomationDirect's XTL series label makers simplify industrial labeling with a large, viewable screen, intuitive controls, and a wide range of functions. XTL series label makers can print using continuous tape, pre-sized labels, heat-shrink tubes, and small format safety labels. The XTL 300 is a smaller, lighter system ideal for on-the-go label making, capable of printing up to 1 inch (24mm) wide labels. The XTL 500 has a touch screen, more features, and the ability to print up to 2-1/8 inch (54mm) wide labels. XTL labels come as all-in-one cartridges with the labels and printing tape rolled up inside or as laser compatible printer sheets. Label types include heat-shrink tubing labels, wire/cable wrap labels, pre-sized safety / RTK (right-to-know) labels, permanent flat surface labels, all-purpose vinyl labels, and self-laminating laser printer label sheets.
