COLUMBUS, Ohio – The new METTLER TOLEDO 8442 integrated scale and printer better addresses retail grocers’ weighing and labeling needs. The networkable 8442 meets customer needs for affordable technology with centralized control in an easy to use, simple design.

The improved 8442 incorporates a large, tower display featuring dual, easy to read, reversed LCD displays. The first line is a seven segment 19 character display for weight and unit price information, while the second line features dot matrix 24 character alpha capability for clear product descriptions and exceptional marquee message capabilities to grab greater customer attention. Its simple, intelligent design makes operation and training easy for the retailer. Additionally, a PC application may be used by retailers to build custom label formats, as well as to create and maintain all scale related data with quick and easy programming.

“The 8442 now incorporates a new design, a tactile-feel ergonomic keyboard, featuring154 presets for quick retrieval of high use items,” Business Area Market Manager, Jim Fenker. “When retailers press the keys, an audible beep provides immediate feedback, making the scale easy to use – both to service customers quickly and efficiently.”

The integrated printer features large label capacity and slides out for optimal access and easy label loading. A high definition print head saves time and money by printing smaller, more efficient and legible labels. The scale printer contains default label
formats for all specified label types and sizes, and custom label format capability for enhanced merchandising.
