LoPro® Easily Adapts to Print Technology / Compact, Accurate and Repeatable

Challenge: The customer needed a slide system to move a print head into printing position. The slide system had to be both accurate and repeatable. In addition, it had to be compact, durable, and cost effective.

Application Description: Digital Print, Inc. manufactures high-speed electronic variable data printing systems to print sequential bar codes, sequential numbers, jumbo numbers, highly variable text, and graphics on tickets, tags, labels, statements, forms and direct mail.

Solution: The undriven LoPro solved the problem. The size 2 was compact and the wiper wheel plate gave it a nicer look which was easily adapted to the print head. The LoPro system proved to be the best and most cost effective solution for the application.

Products Used: Undriven LoPro with wiper wheel plate
