Datamax-ONeil, a global provider of label and receipt printing solutions, has introduced the A-Class Mark II next-generation print engine.
Working closely with our customers to understand how their needs are evolving, we have expanded the capabilities of the A-Class print engine to meet a new generation of requirements that blend high performance and operability with reduced cost of ownership, said Christian Bischoff, Regional General Manager EMEA for Datamax ONeil.
A-Class printers have served the most demanding applications, including manufacturing and warehouse, distribution, and food and beverage. A stainless steel enclosure offers protection from the most challenging environments, such as those found at food and beverage manufacturing plants. State-of-the-art electronics offers high performance needed for fast moving, multi-shift assembly lines and high volume label processing. Available with 203, 300, 400 and 600 dpi configurations, the A-Class Mark II offers a broad range of resolutions for applications where high quality printing is paramount. The printers enhanced graphic display for easy set up and operation along with the patented IntelliSEAQ technology for proactive diagnostics and reporting provides increased productivity and effectiveness in any application.
The A-Class Mark II was developed for 24/7 operations that require optimal throughput, maximum uptime, and easy integration into existing solutions, added Bischoff. We have designed the A-Class Mark II to provide easy access to components making preventative maintenance simple, and our modular design allows most operations to be done on-site with minimal downtime.
Datamax-ONeils emulation software programs allows the A-Class print engines to operate in competitive software environments, simplifies integration into existing applications and eliminates the need to change label formats. In applications that utilise print engines, the downtime involved in replacing printers can significantly impact productivity, Bischoff explained. We have ensured that integration efforts involving our A-Class Mark II are as fast and effective as possible.
The A-Class Mark II is offered with an RFID option, which allows users to encode smart labels at the point of print, where most experts agree that encoding should take place to avoid any chance of mismatch between printed and encoded information.
