Overview of the WLS Autonomy® digital label printer. Blank labels are unwound, printed with CMYK digital print heads, cured with a UV lamp and 100% inspected by a line scan vision system. Labels are the rewound so they can be brought to a labeling machine.
The AUTONOMY® digital label and serialization printer showcases the latest innovation from WLS. The AUTONOMY® digital label printer prints multiple size SKUs without changeover, as well as its ability to print multiple variations and multiple languages from one roll.
For 30 years, Weiler Labeling Systems has been designing, manufacturing, integrating and supporting the most sophisticated and advanced pressure sensitive labeling solutions in the marketplace. Our experience with label coding, inspection, and serialization systems has now evolved into full label digital printing. We’re excited to introduce you today to the AUTONOMY. The packaging market dynamics are changing; evolving more than ever. There is increased demand for customization, increasing your overall number of label SKUs all while decreasing the order quantities per SKU. This effectively increases your inventory requirements and puts a huge emphasis on quick changeover and OEE.
The demand for quick delivery of your packaged products is felt up and down the supply chain. AUTONOMY is your solution. This is a state of the art, high-speed, full-color digital label printer.
