TSC partner in Germany develops high-speed
print-and-apply label system for glass cylinders

Printer With Dalektron RHE 500

TSC EMEA's longtime partner Dalektron GmbH of Dreieich, Germany (near Frankfurt), has developed a high-speed print-and-apply system that is ideally suited for use in the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, healthcare and cosmetics industries.

The system combines Dalektron’s RHE 500 wraparound applicator with TSC’s high-performance TTP-2410M Pro, ME240 or MX240 industrial printers. The semi-automatic applicator system supports a wide variety of label sizes and formats and is tailored for small- and medium-size companies that specialize in the production of labels for cylindrical vessels such as vases, bottles and glasses. 

To maximize throughput, a sponge roller on the RHE 500’s single-cycle base is fed by motor-driven rolls to quickly and accurately apply self-adhesive labels. Operating in tandem with the RHE 500 are the TTP-2410M Pro (12 ips), ME240 (6 ips) and MX240 (14 ips), which offer a choice of 203, 300 and 600 dpi resolutions. The printers support a wide range of scalable TrueType fonts and label materials, including transparent labels, logistics labels, and decorative product labels and colored foils. 

All three platforms are loaded with features, including a 32-bit RISC processor, serial and USB 2.0 interfaces, an SD card reader, a real-time clock, a large six-button LCD display, and plug-and-play TSPL-EZ™ firmware. In addition, the MX240 offers 128 MB of FLASH and 256 MB of SDRAM, while the TTP-2410M Pro comes with the 8 MB of FLASH and 32 MB of SDRAM and the ME240 offers 8 MB of SDRAM and 4 MB of FLASH.
