Label printers SQUIX
Flexible printers for industrial applications

The professional SQUIX label printers are the further development of the successful A+ printer series. They 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 print job processing and immediately provides the required label.

Details

1) Hinged cover
The two-part cover made of impact-proof plastics folds when it is opened. Therefore, only little footprint is needed. The large panoramic window enables to check the material consumption and to track the full printing process.

2) Plungers
One plunger is fixed at the inner side. The second one is adjusted that far to the edge of the label until a good print image is ensured.

3) Rugged metal chassis
made of cast aluminum; basis to assemble all components

4) 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

5) Peel-off function
Via the peel-off plate, the label is separated from the carrier material. Accurate imprint and dispense are achieved with the powered rewind assist roller and the pinch roller.

6) Periphery connection
Additional modules are easy to connect. All peripheral devices are plugged to the printer with two pins and fixed with a screw.

7) Ribbon holder
Fast and easy exchange of the ribbon is enabled with the three-part tightening axles.

8) Roll holder
The spring-mounted margin stop with a screw cap enables constant tension during material feed and therefore improves accurate imprint. If rolls with 100 mm core diameter are processed, an adapter is recommended.

9) Internal rewinder
Peel-off versions allow to rewind labels or carrier materials with or without a cardboard core. The three-part tightening axle provides easy material handling.

10) Rocker
When printing is started, the spring-mounted rocker with pulleys made of Teflon dampens the tension and therefore improves accurate imprint.

11) Material guide
It is mounted on the rocker. The stop is adjusted to the edge of the label with the rotary knob.
