The ID Technology high speed PowerMerge™ family of vacuum belt applicators take labels from the Print Engine as they are being printed and transfers them, via a vacuum belt, from the peel tip of the print engine onto the Vacuum belt of the ID Technology Label Printer Applicator and adheres them onto the product using a Polyurethane roller that is spring loaded and traveling at the same speed as the product is traveling.

With the use of the vacuum belt the label can be applied at much higher rates than alternative Printer Applicators. The label for the next product can start printing during the time the first label is being applied or even before. Multiple labels can be on vacuum belt at the same time, printing is something that can be done all the time, not just some of the time. Print speed and feed is no longer linked to the speed of the product. These features make this approach perfect for high-speed, high-volume label printer applicator applications.
