Abstract (en)

[origin: WO02070268A1] A problem associated with label printers for liner-free labels is that the self-adhesive coated surface (4) of the label strip to be printed is exposed as it passes through the printer and is guided over a roller (10) that transports the label strip through the printer. Said strip must be released from the roller to be issued at the exit (15) of the printer. According to the invention, instead of the provision of conventional scraper elements downstream of the roller (10), the label strip is embossed, which counteracts the tendency of the label strip to become wound around the roller (10), thus enabling the label strip to be detached from the roller (10) in a reliable manner.
