PX Print Module Functions

8. Ribbon saver

It is used for labels which are to be printed partially. During label feed the printhead is lifted in the blank area and the ribbon is stopped.

9. Back-feed

After dispensing the label the next one can be fed back behind the print line. Thus the label can be imprinted until the label edge and leaking of the liner during a longer pause is prevented. With very sensitive materials and to avoid ribbon folds, the printhead can be raised during this process.

10. Gap sensor

With the see-through or reflective sensor the imprint on the label can be positioned precisely and the end of material can be detected – independent of the gaps.

11. Easy replacement of material

The label material is inserted edgewise up to the end position. The printhead and the pressure roller are locked with locking levers.

12. Adjustment of the print layout

By moving the plungers the pressure can be adjusted easily.

13. Fast printhead exchange

With the Allen Key which is readily to hand in the machine the printhead can be exchanged and adjusted easily.

14. Removing the print roller

For cleaning or replacement the print roller can be easily removed.

15. Cover magnet

In overhead installation, the cover is held by two magnets.
