SATO CG2 Label Printer Offers Unrivaled Value

Posted February 9, 2010

Sato CG2SATO, a leading provider of data collection and label printing solutions, announces the launch of a new thermal label printer, which prints 2-inch labels, receipts, wristbands and tags. Its ease-to-use, ultra-compact design, as well as its suitability for on-demand, low-volume label or wristband printing applications make the CG2 series one of the best feature to value desktop printers in its class.

The functional design of the CG2 allows for its operation as a standalone printing system when using the SATO keypad, thereby eliminating the need for a PC at the point of printing. The printer’s compact footprint is ideal for applications where counter space is limited or for shop floor or back office operations that require small space printing systems. The CG2 printer is available in 203 or 305 dpi print resolutions for the crisp imaging of text, linear and 2D barcode symbologies for application use on small labels commonly used for the electronics or pharmaceutical industries or specimen identification labeling in the healthcare sector. The printer’s anti-microbial casing is manufactured using an inorganic antimicrobial material making it suitable for use in environments where cleanliness and hygiene are paramount.

The CG2 printer is RFID-ready 1 and provides an affordable HF RFID printing solution for short-read range applications.

Its clamshell design and simple print mechanism makes the loading of media quick and easy. With its simplicity of design this enables easy operation and maintenance; print heads and platen rollers can be replaced without the need for any tools.

Typical applications for the GC2 include: price and shelf-edge labeling, markdown labeling, returns labeling, patient identification wristbands, specimen labeling, access control and patron management; product authentication, especially item tracking; counterfeiting and part tracking and more.

“The launch of the 2-inch CG2 expands our product line-up further to target applications requirements that can be adequately met by the industry-trusted SATO printing technology. It broadens our potential user customer base, extending even to small or home offices users. Our customers and partners in Europe are excited at the prospect of offering an affordable 2-inch barcode and RFID printing solution that has such massive market penetration potential in several territories”, said Brian Lang, Managing Director of SATO International Europe.
