Worldwide introduction of the Command Control System for all printer series

In June 2014, Wiedenbach presented its new Command Control System, a software application for remote control of one or more inkjet printers of the CS-series linked in a network. The software package newly added to the product range works via a simple Ethernet connection between any user device (PC, laptop, smartphone) and one or more inkjet printers and is characterized by a variety of options. For example, it is no longer necessary to carry out the operation of the printers directly in manufacturing, but one can rather perform the entering of texts, print codes, etc. in a quieter, low-interference environment (e.g. in work preparation). Besides an extremely short and simple commissioning, the system is easy to use, flexible in application, sturdy in design and equipped with a software that allows detailed analysis “With this new development, our customers get a complete cross-linking of their marking devices with the various existing production lines - centrally monitored and controlled from a single source. In addition, troubleshooting and searching can be carried out remotely via Wiedenbach support. This is a critical advantage”, says Daniel Klein, Product Manager at Wiedenbach.
