Label Printer - Spectrum Technologies

Label Printer
High performance label printer compatible with all CAPRIS® and Nova™
laser and ink jet wire processing systems
Spectrum Technologies offers a high performance label
printer offering durability, consistently outstanding print
quality, fast print speed, long life, and unparalleled
reliability in demanding applications.
The label printer handles everything from paper to specialty
labels/tag stocks, with easy change-over from one label media to
the next. Maximum print speeds of up to 14 inches per second
(356 mm/sec) means that it will easily keep pace with your highvolume production processes.
The Durable metal printhead mechanism guarantees consistently
outstanding print quality on the widest range of media thicknesses
and the clever software offers a wide range of print widths and
resolutions to fit various applications—from tiny component
labels, to compliance labels, to wide-web (e.g., chemical drum)
The printer is easily integrated with any CAPRIS or Nova laser
or inkjet wire marker and can be used to print any of the
information within a job file, as bar code or text onto the label.
The label can be printed at any time during the job; at the start
of every job, every time there is a wire change or on a wire-bywire basis. What information is to be printed on the label and
how often is all easily controlled via the software.
