VortexID automated wire marking system handles up to 20 products per minute
The VortexID is an automated wire marking system by Identco. It applies self-laminating and flag labels to wires at a rate of up to 20 products per minute.
VortexID can precisely place up to 20 labels per minute. This rate outpaces other automated units and doubling the output of even the most efficient manual set ups. It operates 24/7 for continuous use and can handle a variety of American wire gauge sizes (AWGs). This makes it suitable for a broad array of sectors whose products incorporate wires and harnesses, particularly automotive and electronics components manufacturing. It offers high resolution, 300dpi printing capabilities, added Identco, with labels applied via a vacuum plate whose rotating mechanism ensures reliable application to cylindrical products.
The VortexID is materials agnostic to expand customer choice and potentially decreasing overall materials costs. The unit can apply both self-laminating and flag labels; this modularity is accomplished by an interchangeable applicator. For both types, the VortexID’s application consistency and repeatability ensure neat, secure labels whose crucial product traceability and electronics testing information must be pristinely printed and unobscured, said Identco.
According to Identco, most automated applicators in its space max out at eight hours of continuous use, but VortexID can operate continuously, processing thousands more products per day.
The company manufactures labelling solutions for the power equipment, electronics, transportation and general industrial sectors. It is able to supply labels in customised shapes and sizes for precision-dependent surface mount technology (SMT) manufacturing lines.
It also has an enhanced series of polyimide masking products (pictured). The PT polyimide discs comprise high temperature film with silicone adhesive utilised for thermal and electrical insulation. The silicone adhesive’s exemplary release properties offer ample protection. The discs are provided on a liner and supplied on a core or REEL ETM for automated application settings.
Identco will showcase its new, rugged automated wire marking system and polyimide masking products at Productronica in Munich (14 to 17 November) at its stand A2.557.
Identco designs, manufactures and supplies labelling solutions for demanding industries, including automotive components, electronics applications, industrial machinery and tools, and commercial transportation. The company specialises in exactingly engineered labels, ribbons, applicators and printers for product tracking and tracing, branding, compliance, and identification.
