From stand-alone, bench-top, semi-automatic labeling to fully integratable in-line labeling stations, FOX IV can create a complete labeling solution to meet your application.
Semi-automatic labeling stations are designed for companies that need to take the next step up from manual labeling or have a need for lower volume, highly accurate label placement. These types of systems incorporate a FOX IV print and apply system with an operator initiated application trigger and usually some type of product placement fixture. Other items that may be incorporated include safety guards, switches, and mats, warning/fault light towers, scanners and verifiers, and mounting bracketry.
A stand-alone labeling station is an ideal choice for companies that are not fully automated with their production or shipping, but need to increase their throughput. A complete labeling station including conveyor, FOX IV print and apply system and/or automated packing slip system, triggering device, and other hardware is assembled and tested prior to customer delivery. Additional hardware such as weigh-scales, light curtains, stop-gates, and other devices and equipment can be added as needed.
FOX IV can create a new conveyor section dedicated to your labeling to plug-in to your existing production/shipping operation. Our team works with your operations team or integrator to determine the applicable equipment necessary for the labeling station including conveyor type, width and height, as well as speed. Labeling stations can be integrated with feeding systems, palletizers, shrink wrappers, taping units, weigh scales as well as various data and control systems to create labeling solutions unique to the application and production environment.
Labeling stations can utilize a stand-alone computer workstation or be integrated with WCS, WMS, ERP, SAP and other enterprise programs. Our software engineering group will work with your company or integrator to provide data communication assistance.
