Label printers SQUIX 4 MT
Particularly for textile 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.

Label printers guiding materials in centered position and providing a separator

SQUIX 4 MTvergrößern
Basic unit

For textile operations

If operations require high heating, a ribbon may stick with the textile tape after printing. A draw roller separates the ribbon reliably from a material.

Labels and continuous materials wound on rolls or reels may be as well printed. Plungers do not have to be aligned for setting the width of a label. Adapted print rollers are provided for slim materials.

Technical details

Differences to other label printers
guiding materials in centered position

 

1 Antistatic brush
It dissipates electrostatic charge after printing, in particular if synthetic materials are in use.

2 Separator
If operations require high heating, a ribbon may stick with the textile tape after printing. A draw roller separates the ribbon reliably from a material.

 

 

 

Control panel

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

Operation panel1 LED: Power ON

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.

Print heads provided for SQUIX 2, SQUIX 4 - 300, 600 dpi
sharp-edged print images
small fonts, graphics on typeplates

Technical data SQUIX: all models in comparision (PDF)

  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.
