Often it is the simple and obvious solutions that make everyday work easier. In this example, labels are required for a special promotion and the data for this is not in your ERP system, but simply in an Excel list. The Sato FX3 helps you here and offers a direct solution without a PC and, if necessary, completely mobile.
The creation of this small application is significantly cheaper than a PC solution and is fully portable. The data from your Excel list is simply sent to the printer using a software tool and you're ready to go.
Whether in the inventory or in preparation for shipping, sometimes the weight is required on the label. Manufacturers of scales often offer a printer, but mostly with limited layout options for the label and the printer can only be used with the scales.
The Sato FX3, on the other hand, can be used universally and scales from many manufacturers with an RS232 interface can be connected via USB adapter. If you press Print on the scale, the Sato FX3 recognizes this, the weight is read out and printed with on label layout. Of course, the remaining data to be printed on the label can be taken from your Excel table or database.
The direct use of a barcode scanner is already provided via the USB connection on the Sato FX3. Scan your barcode and the printer looks for the correct product in your data file in the FX3 and prints the appropriate label. A connected barcode scanner is usually recognized directly.
The programming of the Sato FX3 always includes the layout design according to your specifications. Texts, pictures and all common barcodes are possible here, including 2D codes and barcodes for special applications such as GS1 or HIBC.
