Weidmuller releases THM Multimark thermal printer

August 9, 2016 — Weidmuller introduces the MultiMark, a thermal transfer printer marking system with the capability to meet customers’ labelling requirements for control cabinets or equipment build settings. The printer marking system incorporates a range of marking solutions that would normally require several different printing devices. The MultiMark printer marking system consists of the modular THM MultiMark thermal transfer printer and a line of reel formatted MultiMark markers to fit onto modular terminal blocks, wire and cable, and equipment. Used with Weidmuller’s M-Print PRO printing software, the THM MultiMark Printer gives the user the capability to produce alpha-numeric and symbol identification.

The THM MultiMark Printer prints markers and labels from the MultiMark marker family as well as continuous materials such as textile/polyester adhesive labels, heat-shrink wire/cable sleeves and PLC-field panel adapter labels. To print heat-shrink and adhesive labels, there is a printer option for adding an automated cutting and perforation tool. Incorporating this tool simplifies the process of cutting continuous materials into required lengths. A touch display and status indicators – in 22 languages – make printer operation simple. Weighing in at 7 pounds, the THM MultiMark Printer is portable and can be used for on-site and off-site custom marker production. It produces markers that are resistant to internal/external (industrial) influences with a print resolution of 300 dpi, for identification, and is capable of printing 250 markers per minute. The THM MultiMark printer marking system is ideal for users who have both small and medium custom print volumes and want a means of producing custom markers for terminals, wire and cable, and equipment.

The MultiMark marker system includes 150 new marking products, which can be used to cover identification requirements in a control cabinet or equipment build setting.  Weidmuller’s Dekafix and WS modular terminal block markers, made with composite material and designed as continuous strips, have been added to offer markers that are resistant to both vibration and shock. The plastic base ensures that the marker can be snapped into place, and the elastic outer material makes installation easier.
