particularly for textile materials

SQUIX LogoThe label printer with centered material guide and separator

The SQUIX 4 MT are the further development of A4+T.

1.7 Basic versions with separator MT for continuous textile materials

Because of high heat energy while printing and the electrostatic charge of the materials the ribbon may stick with the textile tape. A separator guarantees reliable separation. It is recommended to select the print roller according to the maximum width of the textile tape resp. ribbon.

SQUIX 4 details
Label printer SQUIX 4 MT

1. Hinged cover

The two-part cover made of impact-proof plastics folds when opened. Only little footprint is needed. The large panoramic window allows to check the consumption of material and track the full printing process.

2. Solid metal chassis

Made of cast aluminum. All components are mounted on it.

3. Peripheral connection

Add-on modules are easy to connect. All peripheral devices are plugged in the printer with two pins and fixed with a screw.

4. Ribbon holder

The three-part tightening axles enable a quick and easy exchange of ribbon.

5. Roll holder

The spring-mounted margin stop ensures constant tension during material feed, thus high accuracy of printing. For heavy rolls with core diameters of 76 or 100 mm an adapter is recommended.

6. Rocker

The resilient rocker with pulleys made of Teflon dampens the tension at print start, thus improving the accuracy of impression.


Operation panel

All print heads are automatically detected and calibrated by the CPU. Major data like running performance, maximum operating temperature and heating energy are stored directly in the print head. The data can be read out at the plant.

Print heads type 4 - 300, 600 dpi
With a particularly sharp-edge print image; They are suitable for type plates with small fonts and graphics. They are, amongst others, required for resin ribbons with high energy needs.

Print heads type 4.3 - 200, 300 dpi
They are recommended especially for direct thermal printing and application in rough surroundings.
