RL Reel to Reel

The RL Reel to Reel system is specifically designed to print details such as batch numbers and/or expiry date codes on to labels (and other reel-fed material), offline, where printing in advance of packing the product has the advantage of greater flexibility and quicker response times.

It is ideal for applications where the labels are subsequently applied by hand to the product or where the label applicator does not have a coding system.

Primarily intended for use with a Thermal Inkjet (TIJ) anything from a single to a quad head can be fitted to give a print height up to 2” (50.8mm). The unit is fitted with an integral encoder and label-edge detecting photocell to ensure perfect print registration and label widths up to 200mm can be accommodated. Label reels can be wound either inside or outside and the motor can be reversed for rewinding, if desired.
