ATO's CL6NX Plus Printer sets a new and innovative industry standard for ease of use, intelligence, on-board industry emulations, connectivity, speed of processing data streams, user activity interface, and so much more.

Ease of Use

Built with integrity, designed with the operator and productivity in mind, CL6NX Plus is the next evolution in this product series and will surpass your expectations of today’s printing technology. With the support of up to 8.6-inch (218mm) OD of media and 1968-foot (600m) ribbon and incorporating Smart Print head technology to keep track of usage specific to the print head installed. The platen roller with the Pure Line indicator provides a visual wear indicator so users can be proactive when it is necessary to change this critical component. Speaking of consumable components, the CL6NX Plus is still one of the easiest industrial tabletop printer models to replace the print head and platen roller with no tools required.

Micro Label Print Mode

The Micro Label Print Mode provides higher print accuracy for small pitch labels and can even dispense labels as small as 10mm. Using SATO Application Enabled Printing (AEP), you can create custom standalone applications that can be run directly on the printer independent of host software and connect peripheral devices directly to the printer such as keyboards, weigh scales, barcode scanner for data input.


Businesses can save labor, speed up their operations and enjoy many advantages from using the CLNX Plus RFID Series of printers. These CL6NX Plus can print text and barcodes on UHF tags/labels and encode data in their embedded chips at the same time. In addition to being equipped with on-screen menus that save users the trouble of adjusting antenna position manually, the printer is capable of checking RFID chips prior to encoding to verify their readiness to use and prevent failures.

The CLNX Plus RFID Printers are rich in Benefits and Features. SATO RF Analyze (SRA) function optimizes the antenna and inlay setting automatically for fast and stable encoding. Users can now find the best settings to encode RFID tags/tags when their characteristics vary randomly due to lot differences or adjusting the write/read conditions as needed when encoding errors appear.

Registering commonly used settings, can save up to 10 write/read tags/labels types. The user can now select and load these store settings to encode multiple media with the same printer. Having a compatibility with specialty RFID labels/tags supports the encoding of various RFID labels/tags including tags used with metals.
