The most attractive in its class

GODEX ZX430i convincing as new mid-range device in the thermal transfer label printer segment at eXtra4

Birkenfeld, 20.05.2019. What the Compact class is in on-road traffic is the Midrange class in label printing: it offers the performance of a big one with a small footprint. The Godex ZX430i tops this claim with an extremely attractive price and is therefore a new addition to the eXtra4 Labelling Systems range.

Best of desktop and industrial class
As a space-saving model, the Godex ZX430i thermal transfer printer comes in a robust metal housing measuring approx. 40 x 27 x 26 cm (LxHxW). Nevertheless, it holds large rolls of labels and carbon ribbon like a full-grown industrial device, but also accepts media in desktop format. At a resolution of 300 dpi, it delivers high print speeds of up to 4 ips - 102 mm/s. The ZX430i's numerous connectivity options and its versatility in codes, fonts and languages clearly position it among the big players.
Yet the thermal transfer printer is sensitive to small labels with complex shapes thanks to its fully adjustable sensor. The 32-bit CPU of the Godex device enables fast first-label-out throughput .

User comfort and more
The mid-range printer demonstrates its full greatness towards the user: Ribbon and labels can be inserted easily. An auto-calibration button saves time and material every time a roll is changed. Communication with the device works intuitively on the LCD colour display with ergonomic control elements. An extensive range of accessories as well as Bluetooth and WiFi options convincingly round off the overall picture.

Users who demand high output with perfect performance, but consciously keep a low profile in terms of space and costs will be impressed by the ZX430i thermal transfer label printer from Godex. Price: € 699,- plus VAT (conditions 05/2019).

RFID for Jewellery

Decision criteria for transponder-supported labelling of goods in trade and industry

Birkenfeld, 02.01.2019. RFID is already being used successfully in the jewellery industry. To ensure that manufacturers and retailers do not miss the opportunity to enter this future technology, Ferdinand Eisele and his subsidiary "eXtra4 Software + Service GmbH" will provide a catalogue of criteria for decision-making and present RFID live during the spring trade fairs.
The identification technology company from the Pforzheim area has been accompanying the development of RFID for years, both in the jewellery industry and in related segments, and can point out key issues.

Additional effort must pay off
Compared to barcode labels, the use of RFID basically means more time and money. The price of RFID labels is up to ten times higher than that of conventional labels. RFID-capable label printers are also significantly more expensive. In addition, much more care must be taken when labelling goods.
This additional expense is paid for by the significantly improved inventory monitoring. From a cost-benefit point of view, the use of RFID can therefore initially be justified for jewellery in the upper price segment. Here, additional costs are already amortized when the loss rate by "shrinkage" is halved.

Inventory - permanent instead of anual
The high costs of RFID must be offset by frequent use. If all movement of goods is continuously monitored, "shrinkage" is automatically reduced. The extremely fast detection of entire trays is the key to this. RFID is a worthwhile investment if inventory is taken daily, several times a day, e.g. when moving goods between the safe and sales area, or even permanently. ...

Special Label for Minerals and Rough Stones

New development at eXtra4 Labelling Systems for direct labelling of raw materials

Birkenfeld, 17.09.2018 - Label manufacturer Ferdinand Eisele GmbH has designed a new label especially for the needs of mineral experts and stone professionals. It adheres even to unprocessed surfaces and can be labeled both manually and mechanically. Under the brand name eXtra4 Labelling Systems, the new development will be presented to the trade public for the first time at Gemworld, Munich, from 26 to 28 October 2018
 
Small, clinging and highly adhesive
The new rectangular label with reference number 31 716 ER5 measures only 16 x 7 mm. Soft polyethylene foil ensures that the label readily adapts to uneven structures. Extra-strong gluing keeps it in position even on porous, rough surfaces, because with its special adhesive properties, the adhesive "sucks" into the substrate.
 
For handwriting and label printers
Thanks to a special coating, the new label can be written on by hand - even with a pencil. However, it can also be inscribed professionally using a thermal transfer label printer. ...

Metallic labels for slimLINE label printing

eXtra4 expands affordable starter product line

Birkenfeld, September 10, 2018. Gold- and silver-coloured labels look elegant and discreet at the same time when marking jewellery. They are therefore particularly popular with trade and industry. The label experts at Ferdinand Eisele GmbH are now adding new metallic-look labels with loop to their popular "slimLINE" product line for beginners in label printing.

Noble labels for label printing beginners
Metallic labels are elegantly restrained in the presentation of jewellery. If they are also attached with transparent loops, they are visually less prominent. Users of "slimLINE", the product line for slim label printing of the eXtra4 Labelling Systems brand, now also benefit from both advantages with the new labels. ...

Special shape for narrow label printers
T
he new labels are specifically designed for slim label printers with a maximum web width of 60 mm. They have a special label shape - the labeling fields are arranged one below the other instead of next to the other - but offer space for the same amount of information as corresponding labels for conventional printers. Applied to jewellery, both forms look the same. However, handling "slimLINE" labels is easier. They can be folded on the long side, which can be done faster than folding on the narrow side. ...

Traditional sales assistants reissued from eXtra4 Labelling Systems

Birkenfeld, July, 16th 2018. Quality-Stickers focus on what is really important. As a label specialist in the jewellery and watch industry, Ferdinand Eisele has interpreted this traditional type of label in a contemporary way:
Instead of standard stickers, individual labels can now be used - produced by digital printing, even in small quantities. The company from the Pforzheim area provides from stock prefab stickers in metallic look under its eXtra4 Labelling Systems brand for any text imprint.

The new "slimLINE" product range includes low-cost label printers in slim design, a wide range of matching label shapes from stock and suitable colour ribbons. Thus, "slimLINE" is closely geared to entry-level requirements - small budget, little space, and low quantities.

Product package popular with label printing beginners
Launched a year ago as a complete set for a favourable start into label printing by computer, the entry-level package has become a successful model. The slim thermal transfer printers of the GODEX RT series are recommended for an annual requirement of up to 5,000 labels. They are well received as a low-priced first device, although the narrow track width of only 60 mm limits the choice of label shapes. But users like to put up with that, because the package is easy to handle thanks to the label printing software eXtra4<winIII>.

Risky OS Update

eXtra4 support saves blocked label printing systems

Birkenfeld, November 13, 2017. Automatic operating system updates can unexpectedly confront users with acute problems. Long-established routines suddenly stop working. Support means rescue here. The eXtra4 Labelling Systems support ticket system provides help for everyone - an offer that has proven itself in the recent software conflict.

Operating system interferes with standard application
The phones have not stopped ringing at the eXtra4 hotline since the release of a major operating system no longer supports the data access component for a popular spreadsheet program. "In the morning I still had labels printed and now nothing works anymore," a customer complains about his desperate situation.

For problem situations such as the current software conflict, Ferdinand Eisele GmbH introduced a support ticket system for its brand eXtra4 and the software of the same name four years ago. It enables anyone - even users who are not yet eXtra4 customers - to access the expertise of a qualified support team.

Price tagging with personal touch

New in the range of labels for manual tagging at eXtra4

BBirkenfeld, June 1, 2017. Handwriting on the label proves character and signals: This product is handcrafted or it is a handpicked offer. Labels for manual tagging are a classic in the product range of eXtra4, the brand for label competence at the company Ferdinand Eisele, and still in demand. The label manufacturer from the Pforzheim area is currently expanding its range of products with various new products.

Handwriting - elaborate but exclusive
What was once a simple necessity is today a sign of exclusivity: labels written with beautiful handwriting. They stand for care, which in price tagging can often only be achieved by specializing in a manageable range of exquisite pieces. For manual tagging is time-intensive and not rational. However, goldsmiths and silversmiths as well as individual retailers are often deliberately taking this path of labelling. It conveys a personal, artistic touch and, with small numbers, does not require an elaborate organization or large investments.

Fine pen for clean writing
The writing utensil must be appropriate if you want nice, handwritten labels. Especially for the marking of labels made of rigid PVC and adhesive material, eXtra4 has now added a new permanent marker to the product range. ...

Label printing for beginners

eXtra4 puts together a complete labelling system as a starter package

Birkenfeld, December 19, 2016 "Label printing for all" – this is what eXtra4 Labelling Systems publicizes for Inhorgenta 2017. The identification experts from Ferdinand Eisele GmbH reduce the entry threshold for computer-assisted labelling of jewellery and watches with a special label printing package: a thermal transfer printer of the Godex RT200 series, including accessories and software, are available for beginners at an attractive all-inclusive price.

Counter-argument to lack of space and cost
It is now possible to take off for all those who have long been thinking to move from manual pricing to label printing via computer. The slim thermal transfer printers from the RT200 series should fit into the smallest offices with their dimensions of 245 mm in length, 175 mm in height and 135 mm in width. Small budgets, on the other hand, the starter package will convince with its tight calculation for the label printer including the ribbon, labels and label printing software eXtra4.

Effective remedy for return shipments fraud

Quick-witted consumers are shown their limits with security labels from eXtra4 Labelling Systems

Birkenfeld, 02.12.2016 They speak a clear language: "Anyone who removes me is obliged to purchase!" - Security labels from eXtra4 cannot be removed and re-attached. They are irreversibly destroyed during removal. The label specialists of the Ferdinand Eisele GmbH offer an efficient means against return shipment tricks to the jewellery and watchmaking industry in online as well as stationary trade.

Misuse of consumer rights
Visible traces of use and still money back? – Enough of that when security labels by eXtra4 are used. They prevent jewellery and watches from being worn without paying. If the security label is missing or has been damaged, it is immediately clear and demonstrable: the customer has no right to return, he must pay.

Repositioning impossible
Quick-witted consumers know many tricks to get rid of annoying labels and fix them later. From hairdryer to steam bath - the list of possibilities is long. However, none of these methods helps with safety labels. The special materials of the labels decompose into their elements when manipulated. What remains is only label particles or tissue layers which cannot be reassembled. ...
