Vector 6

Vector 6 is a professional software program for printing labels that can be used as a standalone application or be fully integrated into business process systems.

Intuitive design

A graphical WYSIWYG interface produces accurate on screen previews of the printed label, using familiar Microsoft Office style tools and layout. Vector 6 provides a full set of design tools including true type fonts, images and barcodes.

Template designs for all labels

Vector 6 allows you to build label templates to be populated with data drawn from a database meaning you can create a single label format for multiple products.

Print time controls

Maintains print time flexibility allowing the operator to manage parameters including position (horizontal and vertical), print direction, speed and temperature. This allows the software to be locked down into ‘print only’ mode, which prevents unauthorised tampering of label designs while retaining print time control over the variables that affect print quality.

Variable data

Database and Prompted Variables

Variable information can be drawn straight from a database (including multiple tables) or data can be entered by a user at print time. Date variables can be handled by native controls or through our date management module DataGuard.

Sequential Numbers and Macros

Vector 6 can handle automatic sequential numbers and has a macro variable editor for more complex calculations and functions.

Compatible with your label printers

Vector 6 is able to print to most popular label printers and in-line coders such as the ICE Zodiac and Markem SmartDate. Vector uses its own internal drivers which can avoid the need to install a separate Windows driver onto a PC. These drivers also provide more control over the printers including extra options such as multiple sensor types to help print typically problematic labels such as preprinted, clear and wine glass tags. For printers that do not have resident drivers built into the software you can use Windows drivers.
