FlexWipe pallet labeling system turns traditional pallet labelling up-side-down. Instead of being dangerous, hard to use, large, slow and expensive, the Evolabel FlexWipe system is totally safe, user friendly, compact, fast and cost effective. Enhancing safety – The unique Tactile arm eliminates any risk of crushing between the moving applicator arm and the printer or the pallet. If you put your hand in the way, the stepper motor driven arm stops and the system gives an alarm. The Tactile arm together with the Pivotable machine mount, negates the need of expensive guarding. This does not only reduce cost and release floor space, it also gives direct and quick access to the system for the operator. The label roll is replaced within 20 seconds and it takes only a minute to replace the print head or print roller when needed.

The free motion apply (patent pending) allows the same configuration to apply either of the two adjacent sides (side+front or side+back) within 12 seconds. This includes validation of all barcodes on the GS1 SSCC label. The FlexWipe system can label all three sides without having the pallet to stop if check scanning is not required.

The FlexWipe is releasing flexibility due to both the compact nature of the unit and the same applicator can label all three sides towards the system. The FlexWipe Pallet Labelling System is built upon two servo controlled rotating movements. The inner monocoque arm can rotate 360º and the labels can leave the printer in two directions (patent pending). The outer arm holding the applicator pad can rotate 200º. A camera based scanner is located behind the applicator pad. When a validation check scan is required the arms move and turn 180º to an optimal reading position, where all printed barcodes are checked.
