Fairbanks Scales, Inc., the world’s leader in weighing technology, announces an update to its popular LabelBank/DataBank Rapid Bar Code Labeling System, an Ethernet-ready turnkey system for industrial bar code labeling, which combines easy to navigate factory-installed bar coding software with a networkable touch screen instrument and high-speed industrial thermal bar code printer. Optional software allows users to custom format labels. The system offers virtually unlimited product information storage, remarkable data storage and communication capabilities, and a configurable backup.

The graphically-enhanced LabelBank labeling software interface features easy controls and printer communications. LabelBank comes with four commonly used box label formats designed to meet most bar code labeling requirements for boxes or pallets.

Running alongside it in a single-station system and designed to operate independently in a multi-station environment is DataBank, a software component that stores and maintains all product data, security information and transaction information. DataBank offers date range selectable product and station reporting for quick operational analysis. All label data is stored permanently in DataBank for easy product traceability. In a single unit system, the DataBank database and LabelBank software reside within the FB4000 instrument or on a PC. When in a multi-unit environment, the DataBank database resides within a designated server and LabelBank resides on separate stations that poll data from DataBank. Up to 64 LabelBank stations can be networked, and reports can be generated on all stations from a central server.

Rounding out the updated system is the PM43 Industrial Bar Code Label Printer, which offers superior performance in demanding applications and environments. The optional NiceLabel software enables LabelBank users to easily implement custom label design and print to more than 2,000 printer makes and models.
