SQUIX 4 - designed for industrial application

SQUIX LogoNew industrial label printers SQUIX: user friendly, reliable, fast and precise

The SQUIX are the further development of the successful A+ printers.

SQUIX represent innovative technology, easy operation, accuracy of impression, reliable and fast printing, compact, appealing design and highest quality standards.

The professional industrial label printers SQUIX can be used in a wide variety of applications. Their development is foremost focused on simple and convenient operation coupled with high reliability.

The print mechanics and housings are made of high-quality materials and perfectly match in terms of shape and function. A wide range of peripherals and software enable specific customized solutions.

Regardless of whether they are operated in stand-alone mode, in a PC application or in a network – the solid SQUIX printers are always up to the mark. A high-speed processor ensures fast printing processes and immediate label output.

As of 31 January 2017 these types of A4+ have been discontinued and replaced by SQUIX 4 label printers.

NEWLabel printers SQUIX 4 - type overview

Material guide left-aligned
 

1.1 Basic versions

For printing on labels and continuous materials, wound on rolls or fanfold. The material is torn off at the jagged tear-off edge. Optionally, it can be cut or externally rewound.

1.2 Dispensing versions P

In addition to the basic model the labels can be dispensed. The label is removed from the liner during the printing process. It can be removed manually or by applicator.

Delivery includes I/O interface


Material guide centered
 

1.3 Basic versions M

For printing on all materials that are wound on rolls or reels resp. fanfold. Especially for very small labels and slim continuous materials such as pressed tubes. There is no need of adjusting the label width on the print head. For small materials adapted print rollers are offered.

1.4 Dispensing versions MP

In addition to the basic model the labels can be dispensed. The label is removed from the liner during the printing process. It can be removed manually or by applicator.

Delivery includes I/O interface

With RFID write/read device

in preparation

1.5 HF according to ISO/IEC 15693 with 13.56 MHz

1.6 UHF according to ISO/IEC 18000-6C/EPC Class 1 Gen 2

When using Smart Labels, the integrated RFID chips are tested and qualified with data before printing. In case of an error the label is marked. To get good results in both writing and reading even when small labels are processed, the antenna position is centered just above the transponder.

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 MP

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. Peel-off function

The label is removed from its liner via peel-off plate. High accuracy of printing and applying is achieved with the powered rewind assist and pinch rollers.

4. 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.

5. Ribbon holder

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

6. 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.

7. Internal rewinder

With the rewinder labels or liners with or without a cardboard core can be rewound. The three-part tightening axle allows easy removal of the material.

8. Rocker

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

 

Operation panel

Printheads

Printheads

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.
