Labels indicate what comes with the wine boxes.

In the beginning, cab’s first hour printer Apollo had been in use in Bad Dürkheim. Today, the SQUIX 4 model is successfully printing labels for more than 100,000 repackagings annually.

It is about quality

Names such as St. Laurent, Blauer Portugieser, Frühburgunder and Pinot Noir, Lemberger or Riesling make the hearts of a gourmet beat faster. The Vier Jahreszeiten winegrowers provide a lot of these. Six million bottles is the annual productional volume. 150 types of wine, sparkling wine or secco are offered in the in-house wine shop. Wine lovers have hard times choosing from a total range of more than 500 products. “We have been confirmed an outstanding wine quality by customers”, Walter Brahner says. The Managing Director considers quality not only limited to wine: “Primarily, customers must receive the product they have ordered. They have to be served correctly by us. In principle, labeling is the most important process at this.”

Cardboard boxes labeled for sparkling wine and secco

The SQUIX 4 printer serves for the labeling of repackagings. At this, labels are manually stuck to the yet unfolded bottle boxes by the employees. Amongst others, label data indicate the vintage, type of grape and alcoholic strength, as well the name and origin of the bottler, added by a barcode and an ID number for traceability. The data printed on the label must be clearly readable and must withstand environmental conditions and liquids not only during storage, but also later on during transport. Thermal transfer, which is the method the SQUIX prints on a label, meets all these requirements. Labels printed in thermal transfer method have a comparatively long service life. An excellent contrast enables a high scan rate and thus favors barcode printing. In addition, the SQUIX 4 printer is highly performant: 105.7 mm is the maximum print width, print speeds of 300 mm/s are possible at 300 dpi printable resolution.

A rewinder, power-supplied by its own mains connection and positioned in front of the printer, prevents the winegrowers from spending time with manually winding the printed labels for stock. Directly after printing, the printed labels are led out of the printer to be wound onto the rewinder. The electronic swing arm control ensures consistent and tight winding

Grown together

It is said that a successful partnership matures like good wine. Properly stored, these wines get the possibility to thrive in color, fruitiness and temperament and become even more complex in taste in the course of time - some of them for ten years, others even longer. The cooperation of the Vier Jahreszeiten winegrowers with cab has been lasting for more than two decades now. Walter Brahner still remembers the first meeting: “More than 20 years ago, the responsible cab consultant introduced himself. He exactly hit the point of our demands, which then had been the following: printing labels in optimized quantities, avoiding the costs for setting up printing plates, imprints resistant to smearing and scratching, pin sharp print images. This is how we got into business back then. The reliability of the devices, the friendly support and the very good services have not changed to this day.”
