Control Software & Print Image Design

a:control - Control and monitor printers easily

a:design2 - design print images easily and intuitively

The free Control Software

a:control is the software for operating, setting and monitoring your Diagraph thermal transfer printers. In addition, you define user groups with rights and corresponding passwords in a:control.

Up to 10 thermal transfer printing systems of the NGT, XL, MLi series can be integrated. Cloning of printers including print images and network settings is possible without any problems.

The program has an integrated data backup. Print images, printer parameters and network configuration are always saved via a backup function. The status and settings of the printers are permanently monitored and logged in a LOG file.

For easier operation, the help function provides detailed status messages and suggested solutions. Teamviewer is integrated for remote maintenance by our support.

The free print image design program from Diagraph

a:design2 is Diagraph's print image design program that allows you to create and print print images easily and intuitively.

With a:design2 you can create a layout of text fields, barcode fields (1D, 2D), lines and graphics in no time. True "WYSIWYG" (What You See Is What You Get) goes without saying.

The use of different variables (e.g. date, time, global, input or count variables) and their linking by formulas is effortless with a:design. Like the handling of printer-internal fonts and barcodes, they are adapted to the functions of the Diagraph printing systems. A wizard helps to create complex GS-1 codes. The possibility of database connection and PDF import round off the range of functions.

a:design2 is suitable for offline operation, operation in a network and in direct connection with the printing systems. The program is designed for interaction with external operating devices and programs such as TOUCH PRO as well as a:control.

a:design2 is perfectly adapted to the functions of Diagraph's thermal transfer printing systems and is constantly updated. All current NGT and XL series printing systems are supported. Printers for which there is a Windows driver are also served.
