Tharo Systems’ PA1200fa printer/applicator can print and apply labels to the leading edge of a product moving down a conveyor where the orientation of the product cannot be changed due to product line constraints. It is available using the Tharo H-Series direct thermal or thermal transfer printers with print resolutions of 203 or 300 dpi. After a label is printed, it is stripped from the liner and held by suction on the applicator tamp pad. The tamp pad is mounted on a heavy-duty swing arm that extends over a conveyor and tamps the label to the product. Labels can be as small as 3” x 1” and up to 4.5” x 8”.
