The label printing software is used for the fast handling of the weighing process label printing and archiving weighing data records.
The software has been adjusted to work with touch screen monitors: it contains very simple to use, large and clear buttons and switches.
The software is used for storage scales.
The program performs "real-time" communication with the scale, displays the current weight (gross, net, tare) and calculates the number of items based on product single unit weight.
The basic operations are performed by means of two buttons:
selecting the product to be weighed (only if it is different than the one weighed previously; large buttons; products are located in fixed positions on the screen, which makes them easy to remember; own coloring scheme of product groups)
printing the label (a large button; printing to be preceded by the print-preview window with an option to be omitted)
The software is compatible with any Windows printer and automatically adapts to the printer's resolution and paper/label size.
The program administrator has the possibility to design label templates which contain fixed elements (e.g. company name, logo), variable elements (e.g. product name, weighing time, number of items, bar-code) and the graphics (BMP files).
Designing a label allows for any of its part to be formatted (e.g. product name, description) and displayed as bold, underline or italic.
The software allows to define 100 label templates (with a possibility of copying templates). Each product is assigned to the particular label template which will be used while label printing.
Designing a label is performed on the real page/label format. The placement of each the object is defined by percentage values of the paper-size.
There is a possibility to print a label automatically if only the weight is stable and meets defined min-max criteria.
The configuration settings allow to adjust the software view and behavior to the individual needs.
Changing the configuration is protected by a password. Software configuration options include:
connection to the scale and weighing unit selection [g]/[kg]
defining groups of products and products with attributes such as: name, 2 descriptions, date of production, use-by dates, single item weight, 4 custom text properties, presentation/hiding
defining colors and locations on the screen for groups of products and products
defining 100 printing label templates
adjusting program behaviors, such as: automatic log-off, required decrease in weight between subsequent labels, required entry of the number of items while choosing a product, automatic printing when the weight is stable, disabling print-preview window before printing, indicating if the product weight meets the min-max criterion.
