Label printing scales (sometimes known as deli or meat scales ) allow you to weigh an item away from the POS and print a specialized price label that StoreTender can read to determine its total price based on its weight.
CAS’s popular label printing scale is NTEP legal for trade use and widely utilized across supermarkets, convenience stores, candy stores and delis. With 99 preset prices to program into it’s user friendly interface making this one of the best scales in its class.barcode label sticker roll jeedah
Check the Alignment of Your Labels
Printers typically have a maximum printing area, known as “printable margins.” If your label design covers up all of the space on a sheet, printing may result in part of it being cropped off as part of its text is removed by cutting.
Fixing this is often as straightforward as altering the interior margins of your labels template to be slightly larger than their label size, providing extra space that helps prevent misalignment from accruing over time.
If you’re having difficulty aligning your labels, try printing on plain white paper and holding the page up to the light. Pay particular attention to each label’s height – either noticing if its top line creeps upward during printing (too short) or if its top line drops lower (too tall). Our price computing scale with printer is ideal for use in deli’s, bakeries, convenience stores and produce markets as it comes NTEP certified with over 1,600 labels included!
Check the Paper Test Sheet
To check whether or not your label printer settings are accurate, print a test sheet of plain paper and place it behind your label paper for inspection. Check whether the alignment of both is satisfactory – if not, adjust either your template or printer settings as necessary.
Our label printing scale is an ideal solution for grocery retailers, featuring a no ink printer that does not require replacement ribbons and an auto peeler that prints one label at a time for hands free operation. Furthermore, this unit connects directly to PCs for convenient PLU creation as well as label file access and maintenance.
StoreTender reads these specialized price labels (commonly known as “price embedded barcodes”) from scales to determine the price of an item weighed on them. Such price embedded barcodes typically begin with 2 or 2, instructing StoreTender to search its database for that price value.
Check the Tray Capacity
If your scale labels are printing incorrectly or at all, or not at all, this may indicate a paper tray issue. This can occur when printer settings are misconfigured – these settings could override both physical paper size and type for your printer.
To resolve this issue, ensure the proper paper type and size have been selected in your Printing Preferences window (see Opening Printing Preferences ). This will enable you to make any necessary changes as required.
Label printing scales (commonly referred to as price computing scales with label printers) are used in supermarkets, delis and specialty stores to weigh products and print NTEP labels to display weight and unit price. Programming can either be done directly on the scale itself or using StoreTender software – perfect for fast moving items that require immediate pricing solutions! These scales also can store ingredient data as well as handling/storage information.
Check the Paper Feeder
Label printing scales (also referred to as Deli/Meat scales) allow users to weigh items away from the point-of-sale and print specialized labels with embedded prices. StoreTender is capable of reading these labels provided their starting digits indicate it is a Price Embedded barcode and both scale and StoreTender contain product PLU information.
For optimal paper feed issues, using high-quality printer-approved paper that is stored in a dry and cool environment is key. Extreme heat or cold temperatures can cause paper curling or detachment from its backing sheet and cause serious jams in printers.
If your scale’s document feeder features guides to adjust paper width, make sure they are set appropriately to suit the size labels you are using. If necessary, adjust their guides until their locks just touch the edge of each stack of paper and match up with its tray’s width guides.
