Birkenfeld, 22.02.2022. As response to increased interest in loop labels with round labelling fields eXtra4 Labelling Systems is adding new shapes to its stock range: Under its brand umbrella, Ferdinand Eisele GmbH, based in Birkenfeld near Pforzheim, has several variants ready for call-off in the updated catalogue.
Stock assortment expanded
With the update of the BASICS catalogue at the beginning of 2022, four different loop labels with round shape are available from stock at eXtra4 Labelling Systems. All offer 17 mm diameter labelling areas, but have loops of different lengths and widths. By arranging the label fields below each other instead of next to each other, one of the shapes is also suitable for narrow slimLINE printers in addition to standard desktop thermal transfer devices.
Frame for precise data printing
In order to be able to mark round surfaces accurately in the thermal transfer printer, a technical trick is necessary: If the device sensors are to position the data print correctly, it is indispensable to embed the label in a rectangular frame. For application to the goods, it must be detached from there after printing. The material frame remains as waste. ...
Birkenfeld, 10.01.2022 „Windows or Apple?“ – This question no longer matters with eXtra4-webPI when it comes to label printing for jewellery and watches. The new labelling solution from eXtra4 Software + Service GmbH runs independently of the computer operating system. The IT subsidiary of label specialist Ferdinand Eisele from Birkenfeld near Pforzheim has developed a autonomous universal system for label printing: The browser-based software eXtra4<web1>, installed on the Raspberry Pi single-board computer. The set doesn't need its own monitor, communicating with the user via web browser. Free of operating system restrictions, eXtra4-webPI is compatible with any current computer of any configuration. Platform-independent label printing from eXtra4 will be presented to the public for the first time as a prototype at the Inhorgenta trade fair in Munich in 2022.
Mini system with maximum convenience
The web-based labelling software eXtra4<web1> no longer runs on the user's computer. Instead, the stand-alone small system eXtra4-webPI provides everything necessary to reliably control the label printer on site on a permanent basis: The single-board computer Raspberry Pi (Raspberry Pi ® is a registered trademark of Raspberry Pi Trading) has dimensions of hardly more than a cigarette pack (90 x 30 x 62 mm WxHxD). It is delivered pre-configured with eXtra4<web1> software. No need for time-consuming installation of software or hardware drivers. The user only has to connect the device to his router or network and supply it with power. Appropriate cables are included.
With Plug & Play ready to print
If all relevant parameters, such as IP addresses and models of available printers, label shapes and layout for the print data, are already known before delivery of the eXtra4-webPI system, plug & play really becomes true for the user. Everything is ready to go. Neither eXtra4 support nor he himself has to do anything else, label printing can start right away
Type 'n' Print via any browser
The eXtra4<web1> software communicates with the user via the usual browser, regardless of whether Safari from Apple, Edge from Windows, Chrome from Google, Firefox or another browser is in action on the user's computer. To open the application, the user enters the web address of the Raspberry Pi instead of a URL. Now eXtra4<web1> operates via browser window in " Type 'n' Print " mode:
