JAPAN – Targeted at replacing barcode label printers in the field, Toshiba TEC has introduced their new generation of Auto ID barcode label printers for the manufacturing, supply chain and retail sectors.
Zooming in on a “clear-cut market demand for lower cost replacement solutions with a solid ROI and no-nonsense operations”, the Japanese company says its five new industrial barcode label printers feature high performance with “a punchy price point”.
The new generation of flathead Auto ID printers are all designed and manufactured by Toshiba, and seamlessly integrates with every supply chain operation or manufacturing facility without any changes in the business process. The printers have a robust metal and anti-stain black cabinet. Packed with innovative technology such as a double-ribbon motor control and a snap-in print head, the new series lowers maintenance costs with field upgradeable options.
Suitable for industrial manufacturing barcode labels, retail and warehousing labels as well as custom labels for the pharmaceutical, automotive, telecom, and other industries, the printers support major Linear and 2D barcode fonts to generate bespoke barcode labels for every industry.
Besides generating high-resolution bar code labels and tags, the printers print industrial barcode labels with advanced barcode settings, as well as provide complete barcoding solutions for industrial and retail environments.
"Our new range of 4" Auto ID printers is squarely targeted at replacing barcode label printers in the field. Most of these older printers are more expensive to operate and replacing them helps reduce these running costs. Using Toshiba's printers does save customers' money, every day, year after year," said Toshihiko Minato, General Manager, Marketing, Toshiba TEC Global Solutions Business Group.
"With the launch of these new industrial printers we are stepping into the arena. Toshiba wants to change the perception that the best is most expensive. It is not. Our printers are high-spec, high-throughput, high-performance and extremely durable -- yet Toshiba's new barcode label printer series come at must-buy price points."
The series currently features the new 4" 200dpi and 300dpi flathead Auto-ID printers and a 4" flathead 600dpi label printer. A new 6" 200dpi as well as a 300dpi flathead barcode printer is due to be available later this year.
