Hermes+ functions

1. Large graphic display

White backlight for optimum readability. Depending on the installation position the display may be turned in steps of 90°.

2. Navigator pad

Simple, interactive menu control. The day and night design only displays applicable functions. Along with the graphic display menu navigation is made easy to understand.

3. Ribbon holder

Simple and centered insertion of the ribbon with the three-part tightening axles.

4. Solid metal chassis

Made of die-cast aluminum providing a basis for the assembly of all components.

5. Assembly applicator

The applicator is mounted on hinges and allows easy removal for maintenance.

6. Print positioning

After having exchanged the label roll the print position is automatically set after a few printed labels. The label position is kept, even if the machine is switched off.

7. Printhead

The printhead may be exchanged in just a few steps. And no need of doing adjustments and settings.

8. Ribbon saver

Is used for labels to be partially printed. The printhead is lifted within the unprinted area and the
ribbon stopped during label feeding.

9. Transport system

The ball bearing mounted rollers for highly accurate print and precise label feeding.

10. Label unwinder

Swing lever and integrated brake make sure that the labels are unwound with constant tension.

11. Rewinder

The liner of a label roll is completely rewound after the labels have been peeled off. The three-part tightening axis enables an easy exchange of the roll.

Print direction

All Hermes+ label printers with applicators are available with left and right print direction.
