CrossMerge™ Vacuum Label Application Modules New

CrossMerge™ takes all the benefits of PowerMerge™ Technology and adds unique features that enhances flexibility, especially when applying higher speed, smaller labels.

With traditional PowerMerge technology, the label is printed and fed onto the vacuum belt in the direction that the vacuum belt is traveling. The product also travels in the same direction as the label feed and vacuum belt. The label travels, without stopping, from the printer, to the vacuum belt and onto the product. With CrossMerge labels print and feed at right angles to the apply direction.




Because it is now possible to print the label in the shortest direction, no longer tied to apply direction, several key benefits are attained. We can now use a label size that will maximize the width of the printer. Instead of printing a label 2” wide and 4” long on a 4” printer we can print a label that is 4” wide and 2” long.

Instead of the printing a label that is 4” wide and 6” long we can now print a label that is 6” wide and 4” long on a 6” wide printer. Fundamentally we have more time to print the same label, allowing lower print speeds and less wear or maintaining speeds and going faster than previously possible.

Benefits of being able to use a 4 x 2 Labels over 2 x 4 labels

  • 50% more labels on the roll
  • 50% faster apply speed
  • 50% more print head life
  • 50% more print engine life
  • Less Down time
  • Lower cost of ownership
  • Higher quality barcodes

Benefits of being able to use a 6 x 4 Labels over 4 x 6 Labels

  • 33% more labels on the roll
  • 33% faster apply speed – Or maintain rate and lower print speed
  • 33% more print head life
  • 33% more print engine life
  • Less Down Time
  • Lower cost of ownership
  • Higher quality barcodes

Because the labels are being fed downwards the applicator can be positioned nose down to take up less space.

Benefits – More Compact

  • Applicators can fit in tighter spaces, great for zero down time applications where two applicators are used.
  • Applicators are easier for operators to access, especially when installed on ID Technology Swivel Mounts, which make it even easier.
