Identification system combines printing and application, reduces marking time up to 60%

Aug. 25, 2023

Thermomark E automated identification system simplifies marking by combining printing and application into one step, which is reported to reduce marking time by up to 60%. This modular system consists of standard thermal transfer roll printers that can be combined with four different applicators—three applicators for conductor and cable marking and one for terminal marking. These applicators include:

  • Thermomark E.Wire produces marking that can be moved radially and axially. It’s captive due to the weld seam.
  • Thermomark E.Sleeve processes shrink sleeves in a continuous format with a diameter of 0.8 mm to approximately 12 mm (24 to 10 AWG), cuts them individually to desired lengths, and opens printed markers for easy sliding onto wires.
  • Thermomark E.Wrap applicator processes self-laminating wraparound labels for conductors and cables.
  • Thermomark E.Vario applicator marks entire terminal strips with just two materials in continuous format for high and flat marking channels.

When used without an applicator, the four roll printers, Thermomark E.300, E.600, E.300 D, and E.600 D, can also process Phoenix Contact’s entire roll material portfolio. This product family also includes Thermomark E.Cutter and Thermomark E.Cutter/P cutting and perforating knives to cut material off the roll to length and perforate shrink sleeves for separation
