Customer Responsibility

Location of Printer

The printer weighs approximately 57 Lbs (~26Kg) and requires a table of sufficient quality and strength to handle this load while the printer is operating. PAXAR recommends an industrial type work table having the approximate dimensions of 96" wide to 30" deep to 32" high. Refer to Figure 1a.

Figure 1a Recommended workstation layout.

The location of the PAXAR 656 / 636 printer should be based on human factors. The printer should be located in an area which maintains optimum flow of your product while providing for the operator’s comfort. PAXAR has taken significant steps to ensure that the operator controls and operations are easily accessible. This goal can only be met, however, if the printer is also located with human factors in mind. These include the height of the printer, the space around the printer, and the accessibility to the printer.

The PAXAR 656 / 636 printer is a high resolution thermal printer. While PAXAR has designed the printer to be reasonably quiet, it is recommended to location the printer in an area where printing and cutting repetitious noise is acceptable.

The unit should always be operated with the cover closed to minimize the amount of dust and dirt in the machine.

Users Manual Model 656/636

Customer Responsibility 3

AC Power Line

PAXAR requires that the electric service be 10 Amps @ 110VAC or 10 Amps @ 220VAC. This will allow the computer and any additional support or service equipment to be plugged into the same service.

Any electrical service which is supplying a PAXAR printer or peripheral equipment connected to a PAXAR printer should follow standard electrical code practices including proper grounding and neutral requirements.

The PAXAR printer was designed to operate in an industrial setting for extended period of time; however, the printer is controlled by a microprocessor which is very sensitive to brownouts or power spikes. For this reason as well as the minimum recommended current supply, PAXAR recommends that a separate “clean” service be installed or reserved for the exclusive use of the PAXAR printer and it’s peripherals.

Unpacking

The PAXAR printer is shipped in a large cardboard box which may be difficult to move by hand.

DO NOT REMOVE THE PRINTER FROM THE CRATE OR UNPACK IN THE SHIPPING / RECEIVING DEPARTMENT.

NOTE: Unpacking in the shipping/receiving department is not recommended for the following reasons.First: The cardboard carton in which your PAXAR printer was shipped allows the printer to be moved with a forklift, forkcart or hand cart. Because of the weight of the printer, it is easier and safer to use one of these devices to move the printer to its intended installation location.Second: Leaving the printer in the carton while it is being moved within your facility will help to protect the printer during any movements to this new location. Once the printer has reached its intended location you should begin the unpacking process.

Open the printer from the top of the box (See Figure 1b). Do not cut deep into the carton as there are items located just under the top. Remove the items located on the top insert. Remove the top insert. Lift the printer onto the table with the two banding straps. Remove the two straps and the plastic from the printer. Inspect the machine for shipping damage. If obvious damage is discovered, contact PAXAR for further instructions - in the U.S.A. at570-888-9116.In other countries please contact your local PAXAR supplier. Once you are satisfied that there was no obvious shipping damage to the printer, the printer can now be lifted to its intended location.
