You depend on your labeling systems to perform, no matter how unkind your packaging environment might be.

ID Technology’s 252E is built to work every day in these tough conditions, printing and applying labels to your cases or pallets.

The machine is built on a study faceplate and is completely encased in a stainless steel enclosure.

The enclosure has large doors to allow for access for label and ribbon replenishment as well as for routine cleaning and maintenance.

In use, the label is applied to your packages through the opening in the cabinet, the rest of the system is safely enclosed. When it is time for washdown, the opening is closed and the 252E is now completely sealed.

The 252E can be supplied with a number of different applicator modules, allowing to be able to handle a range of different applications. It can also be equipped with a heater or air conditioning unit to allow use in hot or cold conditions.

With its innovative technology, the 252E is built to survive the harshest environments. Whether placed in cold temperatures, ambient temperatures, dusty or washdown environments, the Label Printer Applicator with Enclosure Model 252E is ready for success.
