    Energy Efficiency Labelling Regulations

    July 1, 2019

    The European Commission has recently adopted new formats of Energy Efficiency Labelling for several product groups. As part of the European Union’s energy saving objectives and to provide clearer, simpler information to consumers, the new formats will provide a QR code link that consumers can scan to obtain additional product information. This official, non-commercial information will be entered by manufacturers into the associated European Product Database for Energy Labelling (EPREL), which will become available for consumers to view through the latter months of 2019. As of January 2019, manufacturers, importers and authorised representatives of certain appliances need to register their goods and provide the additional consumer information before selling them on the European market. Some legacy goods will also need to have their energy labelling amended and additional information added to the EPREL database if placed on the market from the 1st August 2017 and the 31st December 2018. Now whilst the EPREL database is an EU managed initiative there are obvious implications for goods manufactured outside of the EU where the EU is the intended recipient region of sale. It is fortunate then that BIXOLON has a global sales and support team, plus a network of UNITE partners that can meet all your printing needs. For your label creation and generation needs, then BIXOLON offer a free of charge Label Artist™ application.BIXOLON’s broad range of energy saving Mobile, Desktop and Industrial printers support all industry types of barcode symbologies, including the QR code, plus UHF RFID print-encoding.The range of easy to use portable and fixed printers ensure quality output label after label on a choice of print resolutions - 203, 300 and 600 dpi.

    Retail POS Printing – Cheap Vs Cheerful?

    April 26, 2019

    The value of POS printing technology slowly decreasing with a stream of low cost printing hardware flooding the market, Retailers are now left questioning the use of the product against its replacement costs. The influx of low cost hardware comes at a price, cutting corners using sub-standard irreplaceable components means technology frequently only lasts 6 months and cannot be repaired creating a cycle of consume and destroy. Subsidised hardware also comes with a number of energy and disposal issues making it almost impossible to discard and recycle. However reputable printer hardware manufacturers are now looking into ways counteract this issue offering a wider range of quality, reliable technology solutions which can be tailored to suit any budget. This initiative offers retailers with the security of having high quality, compliant technology which comes with the option for repair and even upcycling. To help with this decision making process, BIXOLON has put together 5 simple points to consider when purchasing your next set of POS printing hardware: Hardware life expectancy – Retailers need to plan their life cycle of their POS estate. Factors such as connectivity and support need to be addressed as technology and customer requirements are constantly changing which may require early upgrades of certain aspects of the POS system compared to other parts. Looking into printer technology with multiple connectivity options may enable simple future upgrades without the need to upgrade the printer. Energy certification and WEEE Compliance – Understanding the energy and compliancy of a printer is essential in the decision making process. Quality printers on the market today will come with an energy star rating which is identifiable by the blue energy star logo and many printers alongside power saving options built into the printers to reduce costs. WEEE compliance is also important to verify the safe ecological destroying and recycling of the electrical product. Design and quality of the product – Quality typically comes at a price, although most quality printer manufacturers now offer a number of printing options to suit any budget. Economical options offering basic essential features and reliability are increased in price by the number of additional features and add-ons. Warranty – A two year warranty has now become the industry standard with many companies now offering additional warranty add-ons. Maintenance companies also provide additional support for printing estates with tailor packages to suit individual requirements. Consumables – Printing consumables can often be a minefield. Different types of receipt paper and label media options have a major impact on both cost and the environment. Many printer manufacturers are now offering eco-software add-ons as standard to their printers to reduce the length of receipts and labelling innovations such as linerless labels which eradicates the requirement of silicon based backing paper. The True Value of BIXOLON POS, Mobile and Label Printers BIXOLON provides a range of POS, Mobile and Label printing solutions to suite any budget. Combining technology with innovation, a number of its printers also come with power and paper saving functions as standard to reduce power consumption and paper usage, while providing the same high quality, reliable receipt and labelling. Offering an industry leading 2 year warranty as standard with the option to extend the warranty with tailored warranty packages across our entire printing range. BIXOLON printers are WEEE compliant and energy Star certified to offer an extra piece of mind. To complement its printing range, BIXOLON also offers a portfolio of efficient printing consumables including including B-linerless labelling (permanent and re-stick linerless label solutions), B-wristbanding (printable wristbanding) and B-post Label (adhesive-free variable length labelling) for a cost effective, efficient printing solutions.To find out more, visit BIXOLON at www.Bixolon.com or alternatively speak to your local BIXOLON sales representative.

    What are the benefits of SoftAP Printers?

    April 8, 2019

    Many businesses requiring wireless printing solutions in markets such as Retail, Hospitality, Payment, Logistics and Warehousing are expanding and strengthening their wireless solutions using new mobile infrastructure technology. Wi-Fi connectivity was always a key factor in this trend but has historically been complex when linking up non-LCD embedded industrial printers to Wi-Fi networks. For instance, Ad-Hoc and Wi-Fi direct one-to-one network systems are popular methods for setting up Wi-Fi printers. However, the user experience to configure these networks has always been a challenge, requiring an understanding of various technical concepts such as node, encryptions, security, etc. BIXOLON is aware of these issues and has provided a solution which removes the complexity of Wi-Fi networking its printers. Since 2017 BIXOLON has adopted a new mode called SoftAP onto a selection of its printers to enable easy Wi-Fi setup. Its printers enabled with SoftAP act as an access point (virtual router). Users can then directly connect their mobile devices or computers with a BIXOLON printer (without using a Wi-Fi router) using the SoftAP function. Easy Wi-Fi setup with SoftAP printers The SoftAP mode establishes a wireless network using BIXOLON printers. In other words, when this mode is enabled, the printer becomes an access point(AP) requiring users to only know two pieces of information, the SoftAP’s network name (SSID) and password. The connection is then established via below steps. Turn on the BIXOLON SoftAP printerSearch the SoftAP’s network name (SSID) and enter the password using the hostThe SSID and password will then be sent to the printer through the SoftAP connection by the host device These steps are very similar to a normal AP connection procedure enabling easy setup without hesitation. The SoftAP mode is the simplest way to setup Wi-Fi with existing one-to-one network connection methods programmed for the BIXOLON printer. This SoftAP mode is available for following products: Mobile Printers: SPP-R200IIIplus, SPP-R310plus, SPP-R410, SRP-L310 and SPP-L3000 Label Printers: XT5-40 POS Printers: SRP-Q300, SRP-S300, SRP-F310II, SRP-380 and SRP-350plusIII For more information visit http://www.bixolon.com/ or alternatively speak to your local BIXOLON sales representative.

    BIXOLON SRP-383: A Top Choice For POS Applications Demanding High Print Quality

    March 5, 2019

    When selecting the right printer for a POS application, various factors need to be considered and print resolution is a key requirement. 180dpi or 203dpi print faster and produce an identifiable image for most applications, but when it comes to printing small fonts, intricate barcodes, and graphics, higher print resolution is often required. Offering 300dpi the highest resolution in the POS printer market, BIXOLON SRP-383 claims to be a top choice for those needs. Superb print qualityIt is logical that higher resolutions meet enhanced clarity, sharpness, and readability. SRP-383 ensures crisp, clear printing of 1-D and 2-D bar codes, quality texts and complex logo graphics ideal for documents such as tax refund receipts in multiple languages, invoices composed of data tables or lengthy terms and conditions. Ideal for retailers who are trying to drive sales and loyalty with coupons on receipts, print quality is the critical element in finding the right printer. If you refer to the diagram below, the images and texts at 300dpi are more recognizable and more clearly defined.Lower TCO and improved sustainability The SRP-383 prints a receipt comprised of high-density contents at 300dpi consumes 53% less paper than printing the same at 180dpi. Powered by the proprietary Auto Receipt Resize™ technology, the SRP-383 changes to print from 4-inch to 3-inch or 3-inch to 2-inch and cuts down on the use of paper by up to 52%. The technology doesn’t require users to change the original software of host devices such as driver or middleware therefore, the print quality won’t deteriorate as the sizing is reduced.These innovative paper saving solutions help improve sustainability by eliminating a significant amount of waste to landfills and CO2 emissions. Powered by TTF Font downloader™ the new utility, which easily stores True Type Fonts is already installed in the operating system of the thermal POS printer. The SRP-383 also enables IT managers to make use of a variety of receipt font styles while reducing time and cost required for developing each font. The program provides functions for downloading, editing and test printing of fonts. ​Producing perfect, scannable barcodesA 300dpi printhead allows more information to fit into smaller barcodes. The SRP-383 prints a reduced size of barcode containing a greater volume data than those printed at 180dpi or 203dpi. It’s recommended to select a printer that supports 300dpi when a relatively large amount of data needs to be stored in a barcode to avoid printing partially cut barcodes. The SRP-383 easily prints compliant, scannable barcodes onto receipt paper.For more information visit http://www.Bixolon.com, or alternatively speak to your local BIXOLON sales representative.
