The intelligence, adaptability and productivity of the SATO FX3-LX label printer has earned vast recognition from a range of individuals, industries and sectors. 

As you’d expect from any new product, the SATO FX3-LX has been optimised to enhance its efficiency and productivity. Yet, most of the admiration for the next-generation label printer has evolved from its highly-customisable technology and its ability to perform in many environments.

1. Modern Management 

You’re set to feel right at home whilst operating the FX3. With a 7-inch TFT fill-colour touchscreen, the device offers a similar feel to a smartphone of tablet, allowing you to access its functions and applications with an intuitive ease. 

Even the maintenance management has been adapted for the modern user. Compatibility with the cloud-based, proactive maintenance solution - SATO Online Services (SOS) - you will be provided with prompt support, eliminating unnecessary operational downtime. 


2. Awesome Adaptability 

Whether you’re in the food industry, retail, manufacturing or logistics, the SATO FX3-LX’s Application Enabled Printing (AEP) allows it to be used as a PC-less, online or standalone printer, giving users full autonomy for printing labels - no matter what the job! 

Adaptation across industries has also been catered for through the multilingual feature which includes 47 printable languages and 31 user display languages. 

 3. Perfectly Portable 

With the ability to mount the FX3 label printer to a wall, alongside its reduced size to save on desk space and hand-held or trolley use, you can literally take the device anywhere you need it. Be it from the kitchen to the warehouse floor, the FX3-LX prints high quality (305dpi), durable, 3-inch labels as standard, excluding the need for a PC. 


4. On Demand 

We’re living in an era where we expect things in an instant and on demand. The FX3-LX label printer has evolved to cope with such expectations by integrating a USB-A interface. This allows devices such as scanners and keyboards to be connected via USB or Bluetooth for the convenience of shop-floor and back-store retail assistants, making it fast and easy to retrieve information and print form product databases. This means less time is spent on merchandising and more time is focused on customer service.

Ultimately, the FX3-LX requires less manual input and less internal training than traditional labelling methods, making significant labour savings for small and large-scale enterprises. For instance, the reduction of food waste due to improper labelling.


5. Remarkably Intelligent 

The SATO FX3-LX label printer has a plethora of smart features. The use of accurate data can now provide the advantage of reducing human error in a variety of ways. 

Automatic calculations can be performed at high-speed, allowing staff members to apply their skills elsewhere. For instance, the FX3-LX label printer will automatically calculate sales tax and price discounts and keep track of discounted items, allowing further, updated actions to be applied as and when required. 

This is ideal for retail scenarios with lots of discounted items, but also because the SATO FX3 has high resolution print suited to shelf-edge labels and promotions. 

The FX3-LX label printer can also provide peace of mind in the food sector, through its impressive food-safe features. It has the ability to calculate, produce and print best-before and use-by dates, allergens and secondary shelf-life compliance information for individual products and ingredients, based on its internal product database. 

6. Marvelously Multifunctional 

The multi-functional nature of the SATO FX3-LX makes it perfectly suited to manufacturing and logistic environments. Not only does it have a robust design but it’s splash proof, slip resistant and IK06 (mechanical impact) compliant too! 

Accurate data can be supplied and accessed from multiple sites across many geographical locations, allowing for prompt and precise labels no matter where your operatives are. An up-to-date, portable database alongside the premium speed and quality of the FX3-LX could be a revolutionary tool for many to manufacturing & logistic companies. 


7. Data Friendly 

No longer will you have to fear data input or analysis. The FX3-LX database is easily updated with data from a server via a USB memory stick, USB and LAN PC connection or automatically via WLAN, ensuring data accuracy is maintained at all times. 

Other forms of data are readily supplied such as the label usage tracking feature. This allows the user to verify whether food safety procedures are being adhered to.
