6974 Label Printer-Applicator for Extended, Automatic Labeling Applications

The FOX IV 6974 Label Printer-Applicator has a TSC/Printronix print engine integrated into the design, providing flexibility, durability, and compatibility in one automated labeling system.

The TSC/Printronix PEX-2000 print engine is used for all types of automated labeling applications. The die-cast structure and metal chassis provide a stable media path for better print quality and accuracy while withstanding harsh environments. Print speeds up to 18 ips are achieved with precise label positioning.

The FOX IV Series 8 body design eliminates label tracking or breakage. With an upgraded heavy-duty backing rewind system, extra-large 16-in. OD label roll capacity, and intuitive color control displays, the 6974 is ideal for applications where extended-run label printing is needed. Additionally, both the Allen-Bradley control system and addressable Ethernet I/O enable faster and easier integration into production and fulfillment lines.

Compatible with most major label printer languages, it's simple to use in a mixed print engine environment, on a new line,  or as a replacement for other labeling systems. It comes standard with TSPL-EZD printer language, which is compatible with EPL, ZPL, ZPL II, and DPL. Optionally, the TSPL-EZS printer language, compatible with EPL, ZPL, ZPL II, and SBLPL, can be requested. This means that whatever your current label print stream—Zebra, Datamax, Eltron, or SATO—the 6974 gives you out-of-the-box compatibility and ease of installation for new or existing labeling applications.

Print resolutions of 200, 300, and 600 dpi provide quality printing no matter the size or character.  The optional RFID module enables encoding, printing, and application of RFID tags onto products or packaging while the Ribbon Saver option maximizes thermal ribbon use, reducing the cost of production and minimizing ribbon waste. The 6974 also features a small label mode capable of printing labels as small as 5 mm in height.

The Swing-away cylinder and open head design gives clear access to the print head and rollers for cleaning or threading purposes, printed label, and ribbon paths allow for ease of media threading, and simple-to-remove printheads facilitate ease of replacement and cleaning.

Standard label application options include varying lengths of pneumatic and electric cylinders, 2-panel labeling, tamp, tamp-blow, tamp-roll, and merge/wipe. Other options such as rotary actuators, multi-axis applicators, and vacuum belt applicators are available.
