Charlotte, NC August 25, 2020 – SATO, a global pioneer in the development of auto-ID and labeling solutions, announces the launch of a new wide format label printer to the North American market.
The SG112-ex series has enjoyed success in the Japanese market with applications in several key industries, such as transport and logistics, manufacturing, chemical, automotive, retail, and supply chain. The printer will now be available in North America for the first time, offering a strong portfolio of benefits.
Designed to save operators time and improve work efficiency, the SG-112-ex utilizes thermal transfer and direct thermal printing in continuous or tear-off operation for a wide range of applications. Replacing the SATO M10e wide format label printer, the SG112-ex brings a unique complement of real-time efficiency benefits to production workflows. The printer has applications in stock management, multi-part shipping labels, and GHS labeling for chemicals.
By combining more copious amounts of information on a wide format label instead of multiple smaller labels, businesses can make significant gains in costs, time, and workforce, contributing to enhanced productivity.
In addition, labels are visible from a greater distance, making information quicker and simpler to communicate in fast-paced production environments. Previous testing has shown a 60% increase in process efficiency when compared to traditional 4” label print machines
The SG112-ex also benefits from:
• 10.5” print width for high-resolution large format printing
• Fast and consistent throughput; print speeds up to 6 inches per second
• Increase productivity with multiple labels printed simultaneously
• Automatic label loading
• Intuitive multi-language display
• Flexible connectivity with multiple standard interfaces
• Durable and robust design
With a print resolution of 305 dpi, the printer can print a variety of linear barcode formats quickly and reliably. Additionally, the SG112-ex enables high-quality print of 2D intelligent coding formats such as QR and MaxiCode and composite symbol data.
Steve Sundstrom, SATO America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Operations commented, “The SG112-ex represents a monumental step forward in high-resolution large format printing. Achieving an impressive distinction of being one of the largest width variable data labels available in today’s market. With automatic label loading and durable design, the unit is ideal for applications such as pallet labeling, where quality, accuracy, and speed are predominant.”
The SG112-ex continues SATO’s legacy in wide width large format printing. Whether one single label or multiple smaller labels printed at the same time, the SG112-ex makes it possible for print widths up to 10.5-inches and print speeds of up to 6 ips without having to rotate the image. Precision printing isn’t compromised as the SG112-ex is equipped with a 305 dpi thermal print head. Multiple standard interface options and multi-language LCD display provide ease of use among different installations and users.
