252 – Clear Barcodes and Text Printer Applicator

Designed for Simplicity

Contact Us to Get Started

The ID Technology Model 252 is the best selling print and apply labeling system in North America.

Built on the Centerline-Modularity™ concept, the Model 252 Label Printer Applicator features the same modular design and robust construction companies have come to expect from ID Technology.

The goal of Centerline-Modularity is to create a process of removing as many adjustment points from a machine as possible, coupled with hot-swap modules for quick-fault diagnosis and repair, leading to increased uptime and lower operating costs for machinery using this design.

The 252 is made up of 6 modules: Unwind Module, Electronics Module, Pneumatics Module, Apply Module, Rewind Module, and Print Engine Module.

The print engine module can be fitted with Zebra or Sato print engines, (or with ID Technology's apply-only Label Dispense Module) to print crisp clear barcodes and text on a variety of label and tag substrates.
