Label printers SQUIX 4 MT
Particularly for textile materials

  • reliable and fast printing
  • accurate print images
  • easy to operate
  • compact design
  • maximum quality standards

The professional SQUIX label printers fit with a wide range of industrial applications. They have been developed with a constant focus on easy and intuitive operation as well as high reliability.

The print mechanics and the chassis are made of high-quality materials and perfectly match in terms of shape and function. A large number of peripherals and software enable customer-specific solutions.

Whether they are operated in stand-alone mode, in a PC application or within a network - the rugged SQUIX printers are always up to the mark. A powerful processor results in print jobs performed quickly and labels provided straight away.

Label printers "MT" with centered material guidance and a separator

To print textile applications

In applications requiring high heat energies, a ribbon may stick with the textile tape after printing. A draw roller reliably separates the ribbon from the material.

Besides textile applications, also labels or continuous materials wound on rolls or reels can be printed. There is no need of setting the width a label by moving plungers. Adapted print rollers are provided for slim materials.

Technical details

Differences compared to a left-aligned material guide

1 Ribbon holder
A preprinted ruller simplifies setting a ribbon.

2 Plungers
Both positions remain fixed with all widths of material. There is no need of adjustment on the print head.

3 Antistatic brush
to dissipate electrostatic charge after printing, in particular if plastic materials are in use

4 Separator
In applications requiring high heat energies, a ribbon may stick with the textile tape after printing. A draw roller reliably separates the ribbon from the material.

5 Roll holder
By applying the margin stop, a roll centers automatically

6 Material guide
attached next to the print roller to ensure accurate print images. Material widths are set with the help of a spindle

DR4-M25     DR4-M25

DR4-M50     DR4-M50

DR4-M80     DR4-M80

7 Slim print rollers
to obtain accurate print images if small materials and ribbons are in use. They prevent from roller wear, print head contamination and errors while materials are fed.

Print heads

Print heads

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

Print heads provided for SQUIX 2, SQUIX 4 - 300, 600 dpi
to print sharp-edge images
to print small fonts and graphics on typeplates
to print on materials that imply high energy needs

Print heads provided for SQUIX 4.3, SQUIX 6.3 - 203, 300 dpi

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.
