Label printers MACH 4S
for industrial applications

The MACH 4S provide all features of an industrial printer with a wide application range. The print mechanics and the chassis are made of high-quality materials and perfectly match in terms of shape and function.

The large, coloured touch display with self-explanatory symbols offers best operability. Labels and ribbons are easy to insert from the front. The centered material guide eliminates any need of adjustments.

The high-tech electronic board integrates all the needed interfaces as standard and is ready for any connection.

Sample applications

1.3 Label printer MACH 4.3S
Printable resolution dpi 203 300
Print width up to mm 108 105,7
Print speed up to mm/s 177 127


1) Cover with a large panoramic window
It can be opened wide. The integrated damping mechanism provides smooth closing. Label stock is visible at any time.

2) Roll holder
The label roll is put onto the holder and, at this, is automatically centered. Materials of different widths can be placed within the box.

3) Ribbon holder
The ribbon is pushed onto the spring-mounted holder and is centered by means of a margin stop and the position indication. The insertion in the print mechanics is simple and comfortable.

4) Print mechanics
It opens at the push of a button and offers easy access.

5) Print heads
All print heads are freely interchangeable. They are automatically detected and calibrated by the CPU. Major data such as running performance, maximum operating temperature and heat energy are directly stored in the print head. The data can be read at the plant.

6) Gap sensor
It is arranged for labels or punch marks and end of material as well as for print marks in a centered position. In case of multi-track labels, you can switch to a sensor that is shifted 10 mm to the left.

7) Material guide
With the lateral retaining wheel the width is adjusted. At this, the labels are centered.

8) Reflective sensor
Labels and end of material as well as print marks are identified by the slideable sensor.

9) Print roller DR4
It can be quickly and easily unlocked in few steps for cleaning or replacement. Coating: synthetic rubber




To achieve accurate imprint with slim materials and ribbons slim print rollers are needed. These prevent from print roller wear, print head contamination and errors during material feed.

10) Peel-off function (with “P” type)
The carrier tape is lead down behind the operation panel. The label separates from the carrier tape at the peel-off edge.

  1. The material specifications are standard values. Applications with small labels, very thin, slim, thick and stiff materials as well as labels with a strong adhesive need to be tested.
  2. The ribbon should at least correspond with the width of the carrier material.
