Sato has launched CL4NX Plus, a refreshed version of its very successful CL4NX industrial thermal printer, tuned especially for durability and dependability in business-critical track and trace operations.
‘Thanks to our many touchpoints with users worldwide we could listen to the market to improve upon the already iconic CL4NX series in the spirit of ceaseless creativity,’ said Hayato Shindo, president of Sato International. ‘The CL4NX Plus really raises the bar. It’s hands-down the best in the industrial printer class, and naturally so, since its world-class functionality came directly from the voices of our customers.’
The new printer has been designed for the demanding requirements of retail, supply chain, manufacturing, automotive, food industry and healthcare sectors. It is equipped with a micro label print mode with increased precision to print high quality labels right in the factory. According to Sato, it prints 16 percent faster than other industrial printers and holds 30 percent more media than others in its class for longer continuous usage.
Additionally, the cloud-based preventative maintenance service, SATO Online Services (SOS), functions as a virtual engineer to minimize downtime and gives users the ability to centrally manage fleets of printers via a single dashboard.
In terms of connectivity, Sato's Application Enabled Printing platform enables smart, PC-less label printing directly with connected devices like scanners, keypads and weigh scales. It also has network/cloud communication to access a database, which can reduce the workload for operators or IT teams tasked with updating label formats with new variable data.
The CL4NX Plus comes with 31 pre-installed languages and 47-character sets. It also features video guidance to provide troubleshooting help for resolving various issues.
