New T2-C Exit Roller (Optional Accessory)

The exit roller is an optional accessory (order able with an additional part number) for T2-C.  It enables the T2-C to integrate to a finisher, laminator or applicator.

T2-C, as it is designed and sold today, is a complete roll-to-roll printing system where the blank media roll is loaded on to the unwinder roll and the printed media is rewound on a rewinder take-up roll built into the T2-C mini-press. For any post-processing of printed labels, the user needs to get printed media away in roll form from T2-C’s rewinder roll after the complete print job is finished.

The exit roller accessory, when installed in T2-C, enables the continuous printed media to come out of the nip roller from where it can be directly fed into third-party party post-processing equipment. The exit roller also allows users to use the T2-C mini-press in roll-to-cut mode.

The most obvious post processing of printed labels is application of labels on product. The exit roller enables the printed labels to fed in-line onto a third-party party Label Applicator Unit that can apply labels on to product containers e.g. bottles, boxes, etc. coming off a conveyor belt.

However, there can be many other types of equipment in-between prior to final application of labels on to the product.  A few of these are listed below:

  1. Laminator Unit – For laminating printed labels (or flexible packaging material that can also be printed on with T2-C)
  2. Die-Cutting Station –
  3. Inspection System –  Many labeling applications require 100% inspection using a Label Inspection/Vision system. The printed labels coming out of T2-C exit-roller can be directly fed into the Inspection system
  4. And many more…

 

I/O Port functionality (Optional Accessory)

When integrating with a third-party party system or equipment, it may be necessary for that equipment to communicate to T2-C for speed adjustments and start/stop as necessary. This will enable in-line integration of T2-C with other equipment much like the integrations we have done with QuickLabel printers as shown in this video.

The I/O port functionality will become available as a standard feature for T2-C.  However,  for T2-C units already in the field will be required to order it separately in case they need to be retrofitted for this capability.

The installation process of exit roller is fairly straightforward.

Please note that we recommend a trained technician to do the installation of T2-C I/O port upgrade kit in the field.
