Why is one inch piece of lead tape feed prior to every label that prints out and can this tape waste be eliminated?

Description of Solution 200000028622

Due to the design and construction of the tape mechanism, it is essential to feed a certain amount of tape through the machine before the first label.  However, by printing labels consecutively (Chain of labels), subsequent labels can be printed without this excess tape.

1. Press the Label key to display the “Label” menu.


2. Press the Up or Down arrow key until the setting for the “Margin” is highlighted on the display.


3. Press the Left or the Right arrow key until “Chain” is highlighted.


4. Press the Enter or the OK key to apply the setting.


Note: After the label is printed in “Chain”, a message “OK to Feed?” appears on the display.  Press the Esc key.  DO NOT feed the tape at this time.  Clear the text on display and create another label, do NOT clear the “Format”, just the text.  Continue creating and printing labels along the strip of tape.  When the message “OK to Feed?” appears after the last label printed, press the OK or Enter key.  After the machine stops feeding the tape, press the cutter lever to cut off the strip of labels.
