Abstract

The typical present day label scanner assembly for scanning labels for the presence of control marks such as a change in ZIP code mark as the labels are being advanced to the labeling head of a labeling machine has two significant drawbacks. First, lateral adjustment of the scanner assembly to accommodate different labels upsets the reading gap between label and scanner and thus, the ability of the scanner to accurately see the control marks on the labels. To accommodate this, some mechanism to permit the operator to adjust the gap is required.
