SATO America announces CL4NX thermal label printer
by Timmy Thermal
SATO America teased the masses with a teaser video a few weeks ago that showed nothing but a thermal printer floating through space, heading towards Earth, and a page with a countdown timer that has now expired.
The video shows a close-up of the printer’s mini-display that reads SATO before it loads to a navigable menu. The printer slowly floats through outer space and the camera’s point of view slowly tilts upwards until Earth can be seen with the Sun just over the horizon. The final seconds of the video show the SATO logo with the words “Landing Soon” and “Beyond Expectation” written beneath.
Exciting! What’s even more exciting is that we now know what that printer is!
Sato America has announced a new series of thermal barcode printers called the CL4NX series. The printer features a 3.5-inch full-color display with included video tutorials and support for 30 different languages. Add to that the CL4NX’s “tool-less” design, making maintenance and repair easier than ever. The CL4NX also boasts a 60” high lift printhead mechanism, and easily accessible media path, wind/in and wind/out labels and ribbons, a cast aluminum frame, metal construction, cast aluminum print mechanism, and a heavy duty cutter option.
SATO is calling the CL4NX their “first truly universal industrial label printer engineered for the most demanding printing applications.” Those applications include warehousing, supply chain logistics, manufacturing, healthcare, retail, and “any vertical and application that would require a durable and dependable printer for years to come.”
Gary Krause, SATO America’s marketing director said, “Undoubtedly the new CL4NX is revolutionary. It is feature rich, easily surpassing today’s field of competitive printers, and truly does set a new height of expectation in operation performance and customer facing technology. It’s the next generation leader in barcode printers.”
