Original Press Release:
Ossid's New Splash-Proof Weigh-Price Labeler Is Fast, Versatile, and Rugged
ROCKY MOUNT, N.C., - Ossid, powered by Pro Mach, introduced today a new weigh-price labeler for meat, poultry, dairy products, seafood, and produce packing operations that require a rugged, versatile, and fast machine, up to 120 packages per minute, in environments with high moisture content.
The splash-proof Ossid WPL1522 weigh-price labeler features stainless steel construction and is designed for wet environments. With no exposed electronics, IP67 rated connectors, motors, load cell and touch screen and with sealed conveyor roller bearings, the weigh unit meets IEC standard's IP67 rating.
This new splash-proof weigh-price labeler can run both top and bottom labels in a variety of sizes with true type fonts and graphics up to 4" x 5" with standard tamp. This machine can also run a variety of packages with reliable and repeatable label placement. It is capable of printing 21 different Bar Code symbologies, including 2D. Physical contact finger tamp system ensures accurate label placement on package. Users have a wide selection of print engines with up to 16 inches (406mm) per second of printing speed. This unit can function as a check weigher with the addition of a simple diverter/kickoff mechanism.
The Ossid 1522 connects to business systems and allows automatic order processing and tracking, remote user training, off-site maintenance, download of print requirements and prices right from the manager's desk, software upgrades, and much more. The unit automatically collects raw data for every package to create real-time reports that can be delivered via email or PDA. English and Spanish are standard operator interface languages.
"A number of meat, poultry, dairy, seafood, and produce processors perform labeling and final packaging in the same high moisture room where food processing and primary packaging takes place" said Mike Alyounes, weigh-price labeler product manager, Ossid. "Unless a weigh-price labeler is ruggedized, it is simply not going to last in that environment without constant and costly maintenance. The new splash-proof WPL1522 weigh-price labeler was designed specifically to remove these types of production worries from customers while giving them a versatile machine."
