If pieces being processed using Endicia will be run on the EZ-Flats Premium, 3" labels must be utilized.  Only the EII Applicator is currently capable of applying this size label at the present time.  If an EII Applicator is not installed on the machine or if labels smaller than 3" are being used, there are some modifications that must be made before Endicia pieces can be processed on the machine.  There are two possible configurations to the machine in these instances.  The steps that must be taken will be determined by the manner in which the operator(s) will be applying the labels.



It is possible that one operator will be applying labels and processing the pieces simultaneously.  If this is the case, the following criteria must be met:

  1.  It is imperative that a shelf is present behind the first transport section in the back of the machine (between the scale stand and the applicator stand)
  2.  Place a Zebra printer on this shelf
  3.  Connect the cables appropriately
    • Power cable must be plugged in
    • USB cable must be connected to the workstation PC
  4.   Create a job profile specifically for Endicia pieces
    • Remove the Labeler component
    • Add a Labeler 2 component
      • This component will be changed from Weber 2600 to Zebra LP2844
      • The Label Height field will need to reflect the height of the labels (likely 1.5 or 2.375)
      • The serial number of the Zebra printer will be entered into the Labeler 2 section for the Endicia job profile
  5.  While operating the machine, the operator will process pieces in the following order:
    • Place piece on scale and wait for the lamp to activate, signaling that reading of the piece is complete
    • A label will print from the Zebra and be applied to the piece
    • The piece will be removed from the scale and placed on the transport
    • The piece will sort into the appropriate bin



If, however, one operator will be processing pieces normally while a second operator applies labels to the pieces, the following steps must be taken:

  1.  Place a table at the end of the last stacker
  2.  Place a Zebra printer on the table
  3.  Connect the cables appropriately
    • Power cable must be plugged in
    • USB cable must be connected to the workstation PC
  4.  Create a sort profile specifically for Endicia pieces
    • Reconfigure the sortation of all qualifications to require all pieces to sort off the end of the machine
  5.  Create a job profile specifically for Endicia pieces
    • Remove the Labeler component
    • Add a Labeler 2 component
      • This component will be changed from Weber 2600 to Zebra LP2844
      • The Label Height field will need to reflect the height of the labels (likely 1.5 or 2.375)
      • The serial number of the Zebra printer will be entered into the Labeler 2 section for the Endicia job profile
    • Assign the sort profile being used with this job profile to the new sort profile that was created for Endicia pieces
  6. While operating the machine, the operators will process pieces in the following order:
    • The first operator will place the piece on scale and wait for the lamp to activate, signaling that the reading of the piece is complete
    • The mail piece will be removed from the scale and placed on the transport
    • The mail piece will travel through the transport and stacker sections, then be deposited onto the table
    • A secondary operator will apply the label to the piece
    • The mail piece will be manually sorted by additional personnel or at a later time
