Federal Brace Introduces the Atlas Floating Vanity Support

Posted on 06 June 2018 by cradmin

The Atlas Floating Vanity Support is Federal Brace’s inaugural product launch in the new Atlas Collection of heavy-duty braces. This heavy-duty support provides industrial strength for a variety of commercial construction projects. Designed specifically to address industry need, the Atlas Line offers a higher carry capacity than previously feasible while allowing for the volume necessary in a commercially-oriented space. Released first in a size of 37.5 in. tall with 24 in. of depth for standard vanity cabinets, the Atlas Floating Vanity Support will be joined by additional sizes and profiles, including a cantilever brace and much more.

Tested to withstand a load of 1500 pounds with an additional 300-pound point load capacity per pair, the Atlas Floating Vanity Bracket ties directly into the floor and is sunk into a 4-inch concrete slab with ⅜ in. anchors, offering up a maximum carry capacity and increased durability. A 2×2 tubular steel arm made of strong, 11 gauge material, extends from the primary column, bringing support to the cabinet while remaining entirely hidden. The 6×6 footplate in ½ in. thick steel extends to provide reinforcement at the base of the cabinet, providing a floating look. While available in an unfinished steel which can be customized on the jobsite, Federal Brace offers custom quoting for powder coated pieces. The increased point load capacity and durable, minimalistic design of this brace make it an excellent option for high-traffic spaces, such as hotels, restaurants and other commercial facilities.

Label Printers for Fabricators

Posted on 09 August 2012 by CRadmin2

Label printers can be an important piece of hardware for manufacturers and large or commercial fabricators. Labeling prevents mishaps and mix-ups, and it makes it simple to sort and categorize both stock and finished product.

Labeling can be part of a countertop fabricators inventory process, to help identify brands, colors and lots of a particular piece of scrap or sheet/slab, and can also be valuable in identifying what pieces of fabricated material go to what job or even where at a particular jobsite. This can be of extreme value when handling large or commercial projects where there may be numerous similar pieces of material.

Labeling finished product can take the guesswork out of installers hands, and can help eliminate problems color-matching.

One of the top models of label printers is the Epson ColorWorks C3400-LT Color Label Terminal, which includes a fully functional computer. This makes all of the printer’s features available in one stand-alone unit, and there are no connectivity hassles or compatibility issues that may be experienced with accessory printers.

Compact and All-Inclusive Label Printing

The Epson C3400-LT comes complete with a high-speed processer and a 12.1-inch color LCD touchscreen monitor that includes XGA and TFT technologies. The touchscreen makes the printer simple to control, and it uses space efficiently because neither a mouse nor a keyboard is required.

It uses an onboard 1.0 GHz Intel Atom E640 computer processor, which works in conjunction with 1 GB of preinstalled RAM that can be upgraded to a maximum of 2 GB. In addition to the CPU and memory, this printer includes a 250 GB hard disk drive (HDD), six USB ports and a 10/100/1000 Ethernet port.

To bring all of the hardware together and make the printer simple to control, it includes the Windows POSReady 2009 operating system streamlined for use in business equipment that primarily serves in a limited capacity, such as printers and cash registers.

Fast, Efficient Printing

Coupled with the computing capability is a fast and efficient color inkjet label printer with Just in Time color printing technology. This technology virtually eliminates wasted labels and reduces the overall cost of label printing. Using this system, labels don’t have to be preprinted on full sheets, which can cause hundreds of labels to go unused. You are able to print only the labels you need at the moment they are needed.

The inkjets in this printer use MicroPiezo inkjet technology, which includes automatic nozzle checking and allows for high-speed color printing. It uses two ink cartridges: a composite black cartridge and a single CMY pigmented ink cartridge.
