IDENTCO at SMT Hybrid Packaging expo: Showcasing comprehensive electronics labeling solutions

INGLESIDE, Ill. (May 23, 2018) – At the upcoming SMT Hybrid Packaging show in Nuremberg, Germany, IDENTCO will showcase an extensive portfolio of solutions for on-demand electronics identification needs.

IDENTCO’s booth in Hall 4 of Exhibition Centre Nuremberg will feature IDENTCO’s broad catalog of thermal transfer PCBA solutions. IDENTCO’s array of labels, ribbons, printers and presenters will be on display.

IDENTCO’s unmatched portfolio of high-performance durable labels is designed to address a wide variety of applications, including identification, track & trace, and masking & protection. With more than a dozen materials and nearly 50 stock label sizes and configurations, there are hundreds of stock products to fill any labeling need. Custom labels, designed to exact customer specifications, create a near-endless assortment of options.

One of the newest product offerings is the PPL line of polyimide labels for auto-application on the SMT production line. Precision die-cut labels on quick release liners in the IDENTCO-engineered REEL-e™ format ensures static-free delivery of labels.

“Our electronics labeling solutions start with labels, but they certainly don’t end there,” said IDENTCO President and CEO Scott Lucas. “Our equipment lineup has grown to include printers, label presenters for pick & place machines, and a print & apply system that combines both functions.”

Three thermal transfer printers will be on hand for demos. With more than 30 years of experience, IDENTCO staff has the technical expertise to match the right printer with the right ribbon and material combination to create optimal on-demand labeling systems.

Labels not only need to be printed, but also applied. Manually applying labels at high rates is challenging and often results in inconsistent placement and poor adhesion performance. IDENTCO offers multiple solutions for auto-application of labels on SMT production lines:

  • IDENTCO’s ELP-A auto-apply applicator portfolio offers cost-effective solutions to ensure consistent label presentation at high rates. The applicators, which will be on display at IDENTCO’s booth, are designed to handle a broad range of sizes and shapes on a wide array of automation systems.
  • The ILP-Slimline pre-printed label presenters integrate into pick & place equipment, offering flexible solutions for circuit board applications. This equipment saves time and money and maximizes label placement accuracy.

Headquartered outside Chicago, IDENTCO has been delivering technology-driven, high-performance labeling solutions since 1986. We challenge ourselves to develop innovative solutions that can withstand any number of extremes and meet the strictest performance standards. With ISO-certified manufacturing facilities in the U.S., Mexico and Germany, we have a global presence and local expertise. For more information, visit
