'Ultra-compact, versatile' new label printer

25 February 2010

A new SATO label printer (the CG2 series) has been launched in the UK. It can be used to print two-inch labels, receipts, wristbands or HF RFID tags on demand.

It can either be used with a PC or as a standalone system controlled by a SATO keypad. Its special antimicrobial cover makes the printer particularly suitable for environments like the food industry, where cleanliness and hygiene are paramount.

With an exceptionally small footprint, the CG2 is the ideal choice where there is limited counter or desk top space. It also offers touch-of-a-button printing convenience for operators anywhere in an organisation. Typical applications include: price and shelf-edge labelling, markdown labelling, returns labelling, and access control and management - especially item tracking.

Print resolution is up to 305 dpi , necessary to print text and barcodes, including 2D barcodes on very small labels. The CG2 printer is also RFID-ready1, and provides an unusually affordable solution for HF RFID labels and tags.

Maintenance and operation are especially straightforward. The new printer’s clam shell design and simple label mechanism makes it easy to load media -even for a novice. No tools are needed to replace print heads and platen rollers.

“The launch of the CG2 offers truly affordable 2-inch barcode and RFID printing,” said Brian Lang, MD of SATO International Europe. “Its compact size and ease of use make it one of the best value and most versatile desktop printers in its class anywhere in the world.”
