The accurate and versatile one

for printing on all materials that are wound on rolls or reels or fanfold - especially very small labels or slim continuous materials such as pressed shrink tubes.

As regards the label width, no adjustment of the plungers is needed.

Width-adapted print rollers are provided for slim materials.

Label printers SQUIX: Questions to Alexander Bardutzky

cab General Manager talks about development of SQUIX and Advanced Manufacturing.

Read the interview

SQUIX 4 details
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.

5 Print rollers' coating
Synthetic rubber is standard for accurate imprint; silicone is available as an option for an extra long service life at a higher imprint tolerance

DR4-M25     DR4-M25

DR4-M50     DR4-M50

DR4-M80     DR4-M80

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

Coating: synthetic rubber

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.

  Technical data SQUIX  with SQUIX M and SQUIX MP by comparison (PDF)

  1. The material specifications are standard values. Applications with small labels, thin, slim, thick and stiff materials as well as strongly adherent labels have to be tested.
  2. in cases of tearing off, cutting, rewinding
  3. The ribbon should at least correspond with the width of the liner material.
