It's 2010 and everywhere we turn things are getting greener. A new and necessary emphasis on ecology permeates our lives; houses, cars, appliances, packaging— all our becoming more eco-friendly. With all this new knowledge and technology why can't we have more eco-friendly label printers? In response to that question, the folks at K-Sun announce the Green Machine and MaxiLabel® Pro Ver. 3.0 Labeling Software for Windows®, a technologically advanced and environmentally friendly label printer system for anyone who needs to design and print professional pressure-sensitive labels in-house and on-demand.

Available in PC or standalone models, the Green Machine® is a rugged label, heat-shrink tube and barcode thermal-transfer printer. It's large, high-intensity backlit display allows for use in any lighting condition while innovative hot keys facilitate instant selection of type and point styles. The machine features 12 Euro/Latin language prompts and hot key, and the exclusive PEELGUARD® electronic tape trimmer for creating rounded corners for more professional looking labels.

The Green Machine® and supplies are designed and built in compliance with energy conservation codes like the European Union Eco-Design Directive (2009/125/EC). The Green Machine® runs on standard AA batteries or an international AC adapter--both included with the printer – making it a viable field or desktop solution. Special nickel hydride rechargeable batteries can be used to provide an even longer battery charge. Supply cartridges are recyclable and made from recycled plastic.

Time-saving hot keys for making patch-panel, wire-wrap or flag labels for wire and cable identification make this printer not just eco-friendly, but user-friendly. Variable margin settings prevent wasted tape/space and provide maximum visual balance to label design.

Combined with K-Sun’s MaxiLabel® Pro Ver. 3.0 software, the Green Machine® offers maximum power to create hundreds of ANSI safety, industrial and general symbols plus the ability to easily import custom images. Add-on symbols libraries include Laboratory/Medical, Electrical, and Homeland Security.

This tool from K-Sun is a lean visual workplace and identification/marking solution for hundreds of applications in manufacturing, wire/cable, office, shop, warehouse, construction, transportation, utilities, energy, law enforcement, security, datacom/telecom and other industries. And is definitely the right choice for companies looking to lessen ecological impact. Commitment to the environment is demonstrated not just in our own daily operations, but where we choose to spend our money. K-Sun Green Machine® blends innovative electronic labeling features that reduce cost and label waste with ergonomic design for easy text entry and label creation plus energy efficiency and recycled parts and packaging; what could be better?
