Label printers SQUIX 4 M
Particularly for very small labels and slim continuous materials

  • Reliable and quick printing
  • Accurate print images
  • Easy to operate
  • Compact design
  • Maximum quality standards

They find use in various areas of use.They have been developed with consistent focus on intuitive usability and highly reliable processing.

Print mechanics and chassis are made of high-quality materials and match perfectly in design and function. A wide range of peripherals and software enable user-specific solutions.

The rugged printers stand up to any demand, whether operated stand-alone, with a PC or in a network. Print jobs are performed quickly and labels are provided straight away thanks to a high-speed processor.

The precise and flexible ones

All materials that are wound on rolls or reels can be printed, so can fanfold ones. Very small labels or slim continuous materials such as pressed tubes are typical applications.

A specified sensor allows round or oval hoses as high as 5 mm be labeled.

Label printers with centered material guidance

 

Differences to label printers guiding materials aligned to the left

 

1 Ribbon retainer
A ruler helps ribbons be set.

2 Plungers
Both have been assembled firmly for all widths of material. There is no need of aligning the print head.

3 Roll retainer
By applying the margin stop, rolls are automatically centered.

4 Material guide
Its position next to the print roller supports print images be accurate. Widths are set with the help of a spindle.

DR4-M25     DR4-M30

DR4-M50     DR4-M60

DR4-M80     DR4-M80

5 Slim print rollers
If small materials and ribbons are in use, adapted print rollers are required to achieve accurate print results. They prevent rollers from wear, print heads from contamination and avoid errors while materials are fed.

Control panel

Self-explanatory symbols simplify settings and enable printers be operated intuitive and easily.

Operation panel1 LED: Power ON

2 Status bar: receive data, record data stream, prior warning to a ribbon ending, SD memory card / USB stick plugged, Bluetooth, WLAN, Ethernet, USB slave, time

3 Printer status: ready, pause, number of labels printed in a print job, label peeled off, awaiting external start signal

4 USB port for plugging a service key or a memory stick, to transfer data to the IFFS memory

5 Operation

Print heads

Print heads

A print head can be replaced by any other one, provided they are of equal width. They are detected by the CPU and calibrated.
Major data such as operational performances, maximum operational temperatures and heating are kept in memory by the print head. The data can be read at the premise.

  1. Specifications are standards. Operations including small, slim, thick or stiff materials need testing, so do strongly adhesive labels.
  2. if labels are torn off, cut, rewound
  3. A ribbon should be at least as wide as the liner material.
