AM Labels, a UK-based label manufacturer, barcoding and software specialist, has received Sato Application Enabled Printing (AEP) certification, allowing the company to develop and distribute customizable software for a wide range of Sato printers.
The AEP platform is an on-board system that provides printers with the capacity to be used as standalone machines, eliminating the need to connect to a computer. External devices including keyboards, scanners and weighing scales can be connected to AEP compatible printers for additional data input and multi-interface operation.
The AM Labels’ team of engineers has received a training on all aspects of AEP software development, allowing them to create versions of AEP tailored to individual printing requirements.
Sato offers a wide range of AEP compatible equipment, including industrial printers such as the CL4NX and the CL4NX Plus, in addition to desktop printers such as the FX3-LX and the CT4-LX, as well as the PW208NX mobile printer.
‘We are thrilled to receive the Sato Application Enabled Printing Certification, recognizing us as fully-approved to develop and sell personalized, standalone software for a range of AEP-compatible printers,’ commented Brendon Bass, sales and marketing manager at AM Labels. ‘We are continuously looking for ways to increase our in-house offering to maximize choice for our customers and, as a newly approved Sato AEP partner, we can now provide tailor-made labelling applications that offer a high level of customizable functionality, without requiring a PC or any additional software.’
‘Not only does AEP offer users full autonomy while reducing the operational costs attached to label production, the innovative platform simplifies processes and increases flexibility by utilizing internally-stored formats and databases to offer businesses complete personalization of their labeling applications,’ concluded Bass.
