Description of Problem 100000036940
Why does one inch piece of lead tape feed prior to every label that prints
out and can this tape waste be eliminated?Description of Solution 200000047123
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 (for more detail, see
end of document). However, by printing labels consecutively, subsequent
labels can be printed without this excess tape when Chain Printing is
selected in Print Options.
P-touch label printer feeds an inch of blank tape before printing the first
label that was printed will remain in the machine.
If there is a label printed previously, it will feed out. Clear the
text on layout and create another label. When the last label printed,
press the "Cut" button on printer.
approximately one inch of space between the print head and the cutter blade
within the P-touch label printer. The three layers of material that make
up all P-touch labels must pass over this space in order to be sealed correctly,
