ATD Marking Systems

Software and Systems

Whilst ATD’s coding, marking and labelling systems can operate stand-alone in many applications some installation engineering or integration is required to allow the systems to operate reliably and with minimum operator intervention. In some cases the provision of an off-the-shelf software package or mounting system may satisfy the requirements. If not our Systems Engineering and Software teams can create customised solutions .

Industrial Coding & Labelling – Software & Systems

software cdIndustrial Systems Engineering and Integration ATD has extensive experience integrating our printers onto production and packing lines. Our Software and Systems Engineering teams can assist and advise you with their expertise in:

  • Product Handling
  • Conveyors
  • Case Erectors and Tapers
  • PLC interfacing
  • SAP, SQLServer, Oracle, MySQL connections
  • Machine Guarding and Safety Systems
  • Turn-key Printing Stations
  • Manual Printing Stations
  • Image Recognition Systems
  • Product sensors and encoders
  • Bar-code scanners and cameras
  • Linear Motion Systems and Robotic handling
  • Networking and SCADA

ATD will work with your internal engineering teams or take on full responsibility for the design, manufacture, installation and commissioning of special equipment or software.

ATD use the latest 3D design and modelling tools and can provide anything from a simple mounting bracket to a complete system.

ATD provides a variety of software packages to support our printers.

ATD WinController logoATD WinController networks one or more inkjet printers and barcode scanners, providing central control and monitoring and enhanced message and bitmap storage.

WinController forms the basis for many bespoke or customised solutions.

It provides an intuitive, easy to use interface for creating and editing messages and shows full diagnostic information on all the attached devices.
