MACH4 – The new generation of transfer printer

Transfer printer MACH4
Primary features
The future “made by cab”: MACH4, the new label
printer which sets new, innovative benchmarks.
It offers all the features of a high class industrial printer
with a wide application range.
Labels and ribbons can be inserted from the front.
The print mechanism and the cover are made of premium
materials and are perfectly harmonised in their form and their
functions.
Easy and comfortable handling and high reliability were the
requirements during development. The large display with white
backlight offers best readability.
The navigation pad with the additional “Enter” button simplifies the
operation - thereby only the operated functions are indicated.
The centred label path makes adjustments unnecessary and avoids
creases on the ribbon.
On the high-tech electronic board all required interfaces are serially
integrated and applicable for every adapter.
MACH4 is available in three designs.
1. Basic device
2. „P“ with serial dispense plate
3. „C“ Equipped with a cutter
for material up to 250 g/m2
The software is compatible with the
cab devices A+ and Hermes A.
Technical details
Detailed Perfection
Convincing product advantages
1. Cover with big window
It is made of shock-resistant synthetic material.
The integrated absorbability mechanism pro-
vides smooth closing. The labels, the ribbon and the printing device are protected against contamination.
1
2. Media hub
The label roll is placed within the media hub and centred automatically. Materials varying in width can be easily bedded within the box.
3. Ribbon re-winder and un-winder
The ribbon is slid onto a ribbon supply hub
with spring mounted brackets. It can be centred with a movable flange and a positioning
indicator. Inserting the ribbon into the print
mechanism is now easy and comfortable.
2
4. Printing with 200, 300 or 600 dpi
The print heads can be exchanged easily.
Automatic print head identification.
5. Gap sensor
To detect the beginning or end of labels the
gap sensor is mounted in the centre of the
label path. For two or four labels in a row it is
possible to use a gap sensor which can be
shifted 8 mm.
3
6. Label guidance
With the adjustment knob the user can
adjust the width of the printing area. This
is to centre the labels.
4
7. Reflex sensor
Start of label, printer‘s imprint and cut outs
can be identified with a relocatable reflex
sensor.

The drive roller can be easily removed for
cleaning or replacement.

9. Peel-off-plate
The ribbon is guided down behind the
operation panel. The label is peeled off at
the peel-off-plate.

cab J-Script allows easy programming of the printer by using
text strings and this independently from the used label software. Labels can be designed and the status of the printer
can be en-quired. The memory card allows to save complex layouts, graphics and fonts, which reduces the data transmission
time.
cab printers provide to be monitored and configured with standard
web browsers or FTP clients. Firmware updates or data management on the memory card are easy to handle. By the use of
SNMP- and SMTP clients, status, warning and error messages
are sent via email or SNMP telegram to the network.
abc - Basic Compiler
Administration
cab-Network Manager
The cab network administration enables the administrator to
manage all printers connected to one network at the same time.
With a single mouse click different printers can be monitored,
configured or updated with firmware; furthermore PIN codes of
the printers are changed and data on the memory card can be
managed.
cab-Card Manager
The cab Basic Compiler is always one step ahead. With an easy
basic programming data is operated or logically combined before they are sent to the printer for further processing. This offers
e.g. the possibility to emulate other printers or to integrate data
strings from barcode readers or scales in printing processes.
All data received is printed in real time.
Database Connector
The cab database connector allows to link up stand-alone printers
via TCP/IP interface to central SQL databases in the network.
Data can be requested, printed and written back during the printing process.
Via RS 232 port the memory card can be administrated fast and
easly. Label layouts, special text fonts, complex graphics or
databases can be up- or downloaded.
Label software
cablabel software for cab printers
The software to create labels
Powerful functions enable the creation
and printing of even complex labels within minutes.
Take advantage of using the multiple
possibilties of cablabel R2.
Perfect labels need optimized text
fonts. cab offers a large number of bitmap and vector fonts. Height and width
of the font can be scaled and the object
can be po-sitioned and arranged. Additional true type fonts can be downloaded to
the memory card.
Most of the country specific codepages
are supported.
cab Windows driver
 cablabel R2 Lite
is equivalent to the previous Advancedversion. You get it - free of charge - with
every cab printer.
 cablabel R2 Pro
Assistant for UCC/EAN 128 barcode.
Allows the collection of printing data
from different data bases.
Wether simple texts, barcodes, graphics
and the connection of databases, cablabel R2 is most flexible - all in 24 languages.
MDI (Multiple Document Interface) helps
to open and handle several labels at the
same time. Objects can be copied, moved and inserted into another label.
Create and print your label with a Windows program for ex. MS Word, Excel,
Access, Works, Corel Draw etc.
Windows printer driver are provided for
Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP, 2003 and
NT 4.0
Mac OS X driver
cablabel R2 provides its own drivers
with individual respond to all different
function of cab printers. This most effective way of communication between
software and printer enables to achieve
perfect results.
Further label Software
cab offers a range of additional label
software (Easylabel, Codesoft, NiceLabel) enabling to program printers, to
print and to apply systems.
For MAC OS X cab offers a CUPS based
printer driver. Please ask us.
Linux driver
For LINUX cab offers also a CUPS
based printer driver.
