The majority of labeling applications involve some type of additional equipment. That equipment could be hardware such as conveyors, flow control, scanners, safety mats, or even custom label application mechanisms. Integrating with new system components or even existing production equipment is second nature to FOX IV’s dedicated engineering staff. Our experienced engineers are experts at designing, integrating and installing labeling systems of all types into even the most challenging production lines. Their ability to understand and solve labeling applications that other companies simply don’t want to touch is the reason FOX IV does “solve the tough ones.”
Some equipment that FOX IV has incorporated into labeling systems includes:
FOX IV’s software engineering staff works within your company’s electronic framework to seamlessly integrate your FOX IV labeling solution with your current process software. We are able to utilize PLC signals, manipulate data streams and construct customized Graphical User Interfaces to make working with the FOX IV equipment simple for operators and painless for supervisors.
Functions such as label design, database storage and call up as well as managing labeling information are all part of the software function. With both off-the-shelf label design and management software as well as highly skilled in-house engineers, FOX IV is able to integrate your labeling system with your company’s operation.
For off-the-shelf labeling solutions, FOX IV offers the Teklynx range of label design products. This range includes basic label design and printing software such as LabelView, as well as more advanced and integrated solutions like their Codesoft Enterprise software, Teklynx Central Enterprise Management Solutions, and Backtrack Data Collection solution.
Of course, not all applications can be solved with an off-the-shelf product. That’s why FOX IV has some of the most highly qualified engineers around. Our software specialists are able to design and integrate custom solutions to meet our customer’s exact specifications including database interfacing, material handling control, barcode verification, labeling system safety features, data collection and customer specific user interfaces.
