6974/6975 TSC/Printronix-based Label Print and Apply

With a TSC/Printronix print engine integrated into FOX IV’s upgraded Series 8 industrial design, the 6974 provides flexibility, durability and compatibility in one user-friendly automated labeling system.

The heart of the system is the TSC/Printronix PEX-2000 print engine.  The PEX-2000 is designed for durability and high-performance for all types of automated labeling applications. 

FOX IV’s new Series 8 body design incorporates the TSC/Printronix print engine into a precision engineered center-wall that virtually eliminates label tracking or breakage.  With an upgraded heavy-duty backing rewind system, extra-large 16” OD label roll capacity, and intuitive color control displays, the 6974 is ideal for manufacturing and logistics applications where reliable, extended-run label printing and application is expected.

Additionally, t
he 6974 is compatible with most major label printer languages, making it simple to use in a mixed print engine environment, on a new line,  or as a replacement for other labeling systems.
