The SURVIVOR® SST3® Washdown Label Printer

Product Announcement from Rice Lake Weighing Systems

The SURVIVOR® SST3® Washdown Label Printer-Image

The SURVIVOR® SST3™ Washdown Label Printer is designed to meet the needs of challenging washdown environments. As an IP69K rated printer, the SST3™ features a stainless steel enclosure that completely seals out moisture and dust. For printing in meat, poultry, food, and chemical plants, the SST3 Industrial label printer is the perfect choice for durability and performance.

The SST3 features advanced circuitry, more memory, and the ability to deliver print speeds of up to 10 inches per second. Print a wide range of bar codes, product IDs, price/lb, sell-by date, or any information your application requires.

Its streamlined footprint allows for easy integration into any production line. Use the external control menu to access electronics without opening the enclosure. When entry is necessary, the external cover opens to the front, allowing ergonomic access to internal components.

We've enhanced the SST3 with features that complement today's technology and labeling needs. Serial communication, USB, and optional wired or wireless Ethernet allow the printer to receive data from a weight indicator, controller, PC or plant-wide network. For longer lasting labels, the SST3 will instinctively recognize when a thermal transfer option is added.

The SURVIVOR SST3 is designed and built to last a lifetime, keeping the elements out and your process running smoothly. The SST3 is the best of the best, and that's why we call it a SURVIVOR.
