High-resolution printing and high-speed operation combined with a diverse selection of label application methods

• Available with RFID capability

Modular Design
The Model 5300 printer-applicator system’s modular design provides one standard system, yet a choice of six distinct methods of label application that are accurate to ±0.03 inch:
• Tamp-blow. This is a very popular method of air-assisted label placement used with standard applications, and is particularly useful in the labeling of recessed areas. A printed label is fed onto a tamp pad and held by vacuum, a pneumatic cylinder extends to within .25 inch of the product, and the label is blown onto its surface.
• Air-blow. Another air-assisted process. The label is blown onto the product from a
fixed distance without the aid of a pneumatic cylinder.
• Direct tamp. This method is similar to tamp-blow, but the flexible tamp pad
makes direct contact with the product during application.
• Swing-tamp. Labels are applied to the front or back of a product using a
90-degree swing arm applicator and tamp-blow technology.
• Twin-tamp. Special rotary arm enables the application of
two labels to the front and side of a product; or side and back;
or one label can be placed on the front, side or back of an item
using tamp-blow technology.
• Corner-wrap. One label is wrapped around the corner of
a case using an articulating, contact method of application.
In addition, an optional secondary label wipe-down station
is available as a complement to any of the above application
methods. Quick-change tamp pads also may be ordered to accommodate various label sizes.
The Model 5300 system’s modular design ensures that the system can be reconfigured to
address subsequent print-and-apply labeling requirements. This modularity can preclude the future  acquisition of an additional printer-applicator.

Special Features & Options
The Model 5300 system includes a number of noteworthy features that add
to the operational versatility of this printer-applicator:
• Browser-based monitoring. The status of all operational functions and
configurations can be monitored by logging on to a web page that is unique to
each Model 5300 unit.
• PLC connectivity. The system can be interfaced with many types of
external PLCs, including Allen-Bradley and Siemens.
• One-to-one media consumption. Special label unwind and rewind
dimensions are matched to the system’s ribbon supply to ensure they are
consumed at the same rate, reducing downtime and eliminating partial changeovers.
• Print job storage. Multiple label printing formats can be stored in the
system’s memory, making it easier for an operator to select a job directly from
the applicator instead of downloading a computer file.
The Model 5300 system boasts numerous additional features as well, including
a microprocessor controller with downloadable firmware capability, various
inputs/outputs, plus durable construction that will withstand harsh industrial
environments.
There also are several optional enhancements that can increase the system’s
functionality. A product height sensor, for example, enables the printer-applicator
to label items of varying heights delivered by the same conveyor.
Other options include a 15-foot umbilical connection that enables the remote
location of the unit’s controller; an adjustable stand for optimum system orientation;
label-on-pad sensor for added functionality; plus beacon light alerts to
signal the status of label and ribbon supplies.
