cab Technology Releases New Printer Line
cab Technology recently unveiled its new XC Series line of thermal printers. This latest edition to the cab family of thermal printers enables two-color printing in one pass through the printer. The XC joins the previously released XD4 double-sided thermal printer in the X Series printers from cab. The new series features one print head for each color and a "ribbon saver" option for the second color to help reduce the overall printing costs.
It will be available in a 4-inch and a 6-inch width, both with 300 dpi resolution. The ability to handle a 12-inch OD roll of media enables the XC Series to perform long continuous runs of large-sized media. The rugged die-cast aluminum chassis and metal cover make it suitable for even the toughest environments. The XC Series will be available with optional cutter, perforator/cutter, cutter/stacker, and external rewinder.
The XC Series meets the requirements of the Global Harmonized System (GHS) developed by the United Nations. The GHS features a two-color system for classification and labeling of chemicals. This system is gaining widespread approval and has already been adopted by the European Union. Many applications in the market have utilized a two-color system by having a preprinted second color. Now the labels or tags can be printed variably on-site and offer greater flexibility. Various label and tag materials can be utilized from standard paper stock to polyester when implementing the proper ribbon combination.
