The Label Mill® 3501 label printer applicator makes capabilities standard that were once custom on printer applicators. More than two dozen I/O points allow for easy integration to scales, bar-code scanners, product diverters, automatic machines, conveyor lines, remote trigger, second trigger for variable data, tamp synchronization, and indicator signals such as low label, low ribbon, printer error, batch done, and more. Selections of several standard features are easy to enter using the touch pad and large, back-lit display. The controller software is user friendly and password protected. Selectable features include batch counter, job storage of up to ten jobs, operational modes, trigger polarity, and printer status outputs. With more built-in features and capabilities than any other printer applicator on the market, the 3501 sets a new standard in printer applicators.
