KE 28 XX – the do-in-all printer

For printing rolls of tags

Discover an unexpected potential

The KE 28 XX is a compact printing unit designed to print endless rolls of metal tags. In this case, the white coated tags are printed by means of a focused, moving CO2 laser beam. The entire bandwidth of the graphics and lettering usually associated with a PC can be used. A design software program supplied with the printer enables the user to formulate corresponding tag layouts.

The tags produced in this way are suitable for use in acidic and hot ambient conditions. Made of stainless steel, the 0.2 mm thick tags are provided with a special colour coating and the requisite holes and breaking points before leaving the factory. The KE 28 XX is available in a choice of two output stages (25 and 50 W) and printing widths (76 and 102 mm) for different levels of productivity.
