EDS 420i | EDS 620i

Printing labels and labeling in one device - flexible and modularly configurable

Label print and apply system for labelling with variable data

Basic concept of the print and apply systems:

Variable, fast and reliable labelling

The requirements for product labelling are increasing and becoming more and more diverse. Track and Trace, product tracing, quality assurance, GS1 regulations require secure and reliable application of variable data. This applies to almost all industries, whether logistics, pharmaceuticals, food industry or chemicals such as agrochemicals. When printing variable data such as graphics or Data Matrix, barcodes, QR codes and comparable code types, uncompromising quality must be implemented.

The EDS 420i and EDS 620i printing and dispensing systems are designed for industrial use and enable you to label your products and their packaging precisely, reliably and quickly using different applicators and label transfer modules.

Highest flexibility due to modular design

The modular design of the systems was the main focus in the development of the printing and dispensing systems. Almost every label requirement can be realized due to the modular system consisting of print module, label dispenser, control system and a wide range of applicators.

The label pre-warning feature, which is already included in the standard module, informs the operator in advance of the upcoming label change. Since all expansion modules and applicators are pluggable, the systems can be modularly expanded at almost any time or completely adapted to another applicator system. The systems are available as a 4" version (EDS 420i) or as a 6" version (EDS 620i) and each as (right) RH and (left) LH units.
