Fort Worth, Texas – ID Technology, powered by ProMach, and a leading manufacturer of product identification equipment, introduces the Model 255 – an evolution of the world’s highest selling label printer applicator. (ID Technology Pack Expo Booth C-3421)

The model 255 is the first ID Technology Label Printer Applicator designed to be PackML compliant and is perfect for packaging equipment users who have taken the steps to implement PackML into their packaging lines (or who may implement it in the future).

PackML (Packaging Machine Language) is a standard for programming and controlling packaging equipment, intended to ensure that there is consistency in “look & feel”, programming, and operation between the packaging systems used in modern packaging lines. PackML is intended to reduce the time needed for installation and training on new equipment as well as to make packaging machines easier to operate. It also simplifies communication between the different machines that make up a packaging line - something that is becoming more important. It is championed by the industry group OMAC (Organization for Machine Automation and Control), many consumer packaged goods companies, and other large users of packaging equipment.

The Model 255 Label Printer Applicator uses Allen Bradley PLC controls along with a 4 inch color touchscreen HMI (Human Machine Interface) - all the operator screens being designed to meet the PackML guidelines. In addition Ethernet/IP is standard for advanced levels of communication.

Since the Model 255 is based on ID Technology’s well proven Model 252 machine, the vast range of applicator options are available, making the Model 255 able to easily handle just about any labeling job.
