AutoLabel 500 Thermal Transfer Printer
Inline printing that improves accuracy and speeds productivity

×

The AutoLabel 500 thermal transfer printer enables inline printing of graphics, text and barcodes directly on the Autobag® bag, eliminating the need for a separate labeling operation. 

This printer supports both linear and 2D barcodes in a wide variety of symbologies for maximum flexibility in product identification, tracking and compliance labeling. Resident and downloadable fonts are ideal for lot or date codes and other human-readable product information; while high resolution graphics printing allows visual verification and branding on the package, as well. The AutoLabel 500 prints labels up to 4" wide x 20" long. Print registration is guaranteed within 1/16" and Target Registration Control enables precision adjustments while the printer is running.

The tilting printhead makes changeover and printhead maintenance easy. A Ribbon Saver feature minimizes empty space between labels, eliminating waste. System-matched AutoLabel Thermal Transfer Ribbon resists scratching, smearing and flaking for durable, crisp, high quality labels. These thermal transfer ribbons extend printhead life and are specially made for use on poly bags. 

The AutoLabel 500 uses AutoLabel Designer label creation software, which makes it easy to design and manage custom labels. Enhanced database connectivity enables networked label storage, sharing and printing.

When paired with the Autobag 500 bagging system, a complete Print-n-Pack system is achieved.
