Label printers SQUIX 4 M
Particularly for very small labels and slim continuous materials

The SQUIX 4 M label printers are the further development of A4+M. The professional SQUIX label printers fit with a wide range of industrial applications. They have been developed with focus on easy and convenient operation and 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. The high-speed processor ensures fast job processing and immediately provides the required label.

Label printers SQUIX M series

Basic version
Peel-off version P

The accurate and versatile one
for printing on all materials that are wound on rolls, reels or fanfold – especially very small labels or slim continuous materials such as pressed shrink tubes.
As regards the label width, no adjustment of the plungers is needed.
Width-adapted print rollers are provided for slim materials.

1.4 Label printer SQUIX 4.3 M
Printable resolution dpi 203 300
Print width up to mm 108 105,7
Print speed up to mm/s 127 102

Technical details
Differences compared to a left-aligned material guide

1) Ribbon holder
Easy insertion of the ribbons is enabled with the three-part tightening axles. A pre-printed ruler simplifies the adjustment.

2) Roll holder
When setting the margin stop, the material roll is automatically centered. If rolls with 100 mm core diameter are processed, an adaptor is recommended.

3) Plungers
Both plungers are fixed for all material widths. No print head settings or adjustments are necessary.

4) Material guide
The material guide just in front of the print roller provides accurate imprint. The material width is adjusted with a spindle.

5) Print rollers coating
Synthetic rubber is standard for accurate imprint; silicone is available as an option for an extra long service life at a higher imprint tolerance.

6) Slim print rollers
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.

  1. Limitations may apply to small labels, thin materials or strong adhesives. Critical applications need to be tested.
  2. When tearing off, cutting, rewinding.
  3. The ribbon should at least correspond with the width of the carrier material.
