Toshiba's BelAp4 applicator is designed to withstand all types of industrial environments, easily adapting to existing production lines.
The module for Toshiba's EX series industrial printers allows you to work in thermal and direct-thermal transfer, at 200/300 / 600dpi, with a ribbon autonomy of up to 800m, and an automatic ribbon saver. (Ribbon saver available only on B-EX4T1 model)

Reduction of operating costs

Toshiba technology enables a drastic reduction in operating costs. The BelAp4 module equipped with B-EX4 series printers, has the environmentally friendly technology, recognized worldwide, that allows automatic ribbon saving (optional), with almost 70% less power consumption in stand-by mode compared to its predecessor . Eliminating wrinkles in the print ribbon also reduces paper and ribbon waste. These special features reduce operating costs while helping to preserve the environment.

Emulation technology

The emulation technology allows Toshiba printers to work with data flow allowing to improve their labels, without modifying their current system. No need to change your software, just install the printer and start working. Free yourself from the constraints of your proprietary system, protect your future investments, and lower your TCO.

Tagging in motion

1 ″ piston shaft with adjustable up / down stroke speed. Self-sizing (labeling at different heights). Possibility of work by contact, by blowing, in stop and in movement (up to 20m / min.).

Security

Pressure sensor to avoid accidents. Perimeter signal (instantaneous stop): prevents the piston from moving if the limited work area is accessed. Pressure regulator limited to 6 bars. Sensor "hand presence" (optional). The piston stays up even if the air is shut off to avoid knocks and line obstructions.
