Label printer SQUIX 4 MP

Technical details

Differences compared to a left-aligned material guide:

1 Ribbon holder
Easy insertion of the ribbons is enabled with the three-part tightening axles. A preprinted ruler simplifies the adjustment.

2 Roll holder
When setting the margin stop, the material roll is automatically centered. If rolls with 100 mm core diameter are processed, an adapter is recommended.

3 Plungers
Both plungers are fixed for all material widths. No print head settings or adjustments are necessary.

4 Material guide
The material guide just in front of the print roller provides accurate imprint. The material width is adjusted with a spindle.

DR4-M25     DR4-M25

DR4-M50     DR4-M50

DR4-M80     DR4-M80

Slim print rollers
To achieve accurate imprint with slim materials and ribbons slim print rollers are needed. These prevent from print roller wear, print head contamination and errors during material feed.

Print heads

Print heads

All print heads are freely interchangeable at equal width. They are automatically detected and calibrated by the CPU.
Major data such as running performance, maximum operating temperature and heat energy are directly stored in the print head. The data can be read at the plant.
