Citizen Label Printers

The compact CLP-521, CLP-621 and CLP-631 feature a robust all-metal mechanism with Citizen’s proven
Hi-Lift™ head opening system, ensuring exceptional levels of reliability making the printer ideal as an industrial desktop printer.

Citizen’s sophisticated dark grey colour design ensures that the units are comparatively easier to maintain and keep presentable, particularly within industrial environments where dust, dirt, or particulates are present. Citizen’s dark grey printers are also equally at home in cleaner environments such as office where many PCs and monitors are already supplied in dark grey and black colours.

Mark Beauchamp, European Marketing Manager, at Citizen commented, “Another important factor for Citizen introducing dark-grey coloured printers was simply that more and more customers were demanding them in alternative colours to match existing installations, especially in retail and POS systems, many of which ship in shades of grey and black”.

Capable of printing at speeds of up to 4 inches per second, the new printers feature an Active Ribbon Control and Positioning System (ARCP™), which maintains a constant tension on the ribbon and eliminates the problem of poor print quality, ensuring wrinkle-free printing and superior printing results even on specialised materials. Perhaps as importantly, the ARCP system helps maintain optimum print speed and resolution.

The bench or table-top CLP-521, 621 and 631 printers are designed to be used as either stand-alone or networked devices, offering excellent web connectivity via internal Ethernet or wireless LAN cards. The units are simple to use, with colour-coded levers for easy, quick and efficient set-up and can be configured simply using the Vue-Print menu system specially developed by Citizen.

The latest CLP-631 is ideal for producing small labels containing a large amount of complex data such as might be used inside mobile phones or on pharmaceutical packs, while the latest CLP-521 and 621 printers are ideal for production line labelling, where an autocutter is required to cut card tags or continuous media to particular lengths. In addition, the CLP-521 and 621 feature a label peeler that checks labels have been removed before printing further ones.
