A4+T - particularly for textile materials

A4+T LogoThe label printer for single-sided printing

All materials that are winded on rolls or reels can be marked. Particularly for textile materials there is a drive roller installed next to the print head. It enables the textile material to be separated from the ribbon and furthermore improves the accuracy and precision in a print.

  • No adjustment of print head for different widths of material
  • Print rollers for narrow and slim materials
  • Operation and control are compatible with the A+ series.

For double-sided printing with centered material positioning and drawing roller see XD4T.

Accessories of the textile printer A4+T

Perforation and cutter

Cutter

Used to cut paper labels, self-adhesive labels, cardboard, textile or synthetic materials as well as heat shrink tubes.

Perforation cutter

Enables the perforation of the material for later manual separation.

Stacker with cutter

Stacker with cutter

Printed materials are cut and stacked. The print job is stopped as soon as the maximum stack height is reached. Even stiff or curved materials may be processed. We recommend to have your material tested at our facilities.

Print rollers for small and thin materials

Print rollers for small and thin materials

Outside the material width the printhead rubs against the print rollers. By using small print rollers feeding errors and wear on print head and print roller due to rubbing are avoided. Three different standard widths are available from stock.

Label printer A4+T

1. Wide graphic display

White backlight for optimum readability.

2. No print head adjustment

The print head is pressed down by two toggles. Due to centered material positioning there is no need to do print head adjustments and settings.

3. Material guide

High printing accuracy as the material is located directly behind the print roller. Width adjustment with a single knob.

4. Separator

Preferred application with continuous and textile materials as well as pressed tubes. The transfer tape may stick with the textile tape after the printing. With a drive roller, the material is separated from the ribbon. In addition, the accuracy of impression is improved.

5. Peripheral connection

Add-on modules such as cutter, perforation cutter and stacker are easy to connect.

6. Solid metal chassis

Die-cast aluminum. All components are mounted on it.

7. Antistatic brush

Particularly in case of plastic materials electrostatics is discharged after printing.

8. Ribbon holder

Simple, centered insertion of the ribbon with three-part tightening axles. Imprinted rule simplifies ribbon positioning.

9. Roll holder

Available for core diameters starting 38 mm (76 mm adapters for improved label winding are provided). The material is automatically centered. The spring-mounted margin stop ensures constant tension during feeding, thus ensuring high printing accuracy.
