The APEL line of labelers integrates Novexx Solutions label heads into each system. Our print and apply systems uses the ALX printer applicator due to its ruggedness and efficiency to get the job done. The ALX printer utilizes thermal transfer printing technology and features ribbon savings.
    What is Ribbon Savings?
    Ribbon savings is a feature in the ALX printer which lifts the print head from the label when no print is required, allowing you to use less ribbon. For example, if your label is 4″ long and you only print on 1″ of that label, you will only use 1″ of ribbon. Other printers on the market will use 4″ of ribbon which results in money wasted, time wasted, and faster ware of your print head.
    Why is ribbon savings important?
    With ribbon savings you will spend less on consumables, extend the life of your printhead and have more uptime/less change over!
