SATO, a global provider of Auto-ID solutions, will showcase its latest printing technology and solutions for processing and packaging applications in food, transport & logistics, warehouse, manufacturing and distribution industries at PPMA Total Show 2016 to be held in Birmingham from September 27-29.
One of the main highlights will be SATO’s CL4NX Application Enabled Printing (AEP) technology which enables businesses to increase productivity and costs associated with printing labels and tags.
“We’re delighted to be part of the PPMA Show 2016, showcasing our expertise and experience, and advising customers on the most appropriate products and solutions enabling them to improve their process and packaging operations. We are committed to helping our customers increase efficiency, optimise internal and external logistics processes and most notably to cut costs,” says Neil Batchelor, General Manager for SATO European Sales.
SATO’s AEP technology is a powerful on-board printer intelligence which enables customisation of the printer to significantly simplify labelling operations and reduce business costs. AEP technology introduces the next generation of Smart label printing and it allows SATO’s NX range of printers to be used as a standalone printing solution eliminating the need for costly computers. AEP enables the use of common peripherals such as USB keyboards, barcode scanners or weigh scales.
The CL4NX AEP user-friendly printer helps reduce costs because it operates without a PC thus reducing the up-front investment and running costs. Also, the stand alone operation avoids network infrastructure expenses and security risks. It improves productivity with simple-to-use applications, and minimal operator training.
The NX Series represents SATO’s next generation of thermal printers with advanced support for barcode symbologies, character sets and RFID encoding. This NX range is designed to be easy to use and maintain. It features multi emulation support, standard multiple on-board interfaces and support for a variety of media types. The NX Series has a durable design and it provides superior print accuracy and quality while delivering high-speed processing.
Other highlights on the stand include SATO’s S84-ex & S86-ex series of high performance print engines which are ideal for high-volume, automated print/apply labelling applications demanding exceptional reliability 24/7.
Also on display will be SATO’s HR2 printer series which is highly engineered to provide precision printing of labels and is an exceptional performer for the production of small images, including 2-dimensional type barcodes and text.
