SATO, a leading supplier of solutions for automatic identification and
data acquisition, and a pioneer in hand labelling, has launched two new
starter packs for its popular Judo and Kendo handheld labellers. The
‘ready-to-use’ packs include a Judo or Kendo handheld labeller together
with 12,000 labels so users can simply start labelling quickly and work
Ideal for product identification and price marking in the retail, food
and manufacturing industries, the labellers print high-quality labels,
quickly, easily and economically. Kendo and Judo handheld labellers are
extremely user friendly, and are sturdy and lightweight devices that
print one- and two-line labels respectively.
They have new features such as a larger font size of 5mm in height,
making the labels easy to read, and their unique design of print band
mechanism eliminates ink smudging. They feature high effectiveness and
long life, fast loading, easy ink cartridge replacement, and a broad
range of character sets. This makes them ideal for supporting
applications in price, stock and quality management, such as price and
discount labelling, date coding, product coding or shipment coding.
The Kendo starter pack comes with 12,000 26mm x 12mm labels for single
line printing and the Judo pack comes with 12,000 26mm x 16mm labels for
two line printing.
"At SATO we’re continually developing products that will enable our
customers to work more efficiently," says Ikuo Dobashi, Chairman of SATO
Corporation and SATO International Europe. "These new starter packs are
a neat solution for retailers and manufacturers – they include
everything needed to start labelling so users can simply ‘label and go’,
allowing them to get the job done more quickly than before."
It is also easy to order as users basically specify the pack, rather
than labeller and labels individually, which assists in purchasing.
Fifty years ago SATO invented the Hand Labelling Systems (HLS), which
has since become essential in many business areas in the merchandising
and logistics sectors. It still maintains an established position for
goods labelling in merchandising as well as production and warehousing,
despite the widespread use of electronic material management systems.
SATO’s HLS product line has grown to include a broad range of devices
for a wide variety of applications and requirements.
