Barcode Thermal Printers Increase Efficiency and Productivity, Ensure End-to-End Traceability
9/1/2017


Advantech recently released a selection of desktop, industrial, and mobile barcode label thermal printers for applications including industrial/manufacturing, retail, transportation/logistics, and commercial services. With these thermal printers, users can easily track parts and documentation throughout the entire manufacturing process, thereby reducing errors, increasing productivity, and ensuring end-to-end traceability. 


Products are scanned to obtain information so that they can be monitored throughout the manufacturing process. The entire scanning process takes only seconds to complete and increases efficiency while minimizing errors. This helps retailers with inventory management, both on the shop floor and in the warehouse.


Industrial Series—Superior High-Speed Performance and More Memory 


The industrial barcode label printer series offers high-speed performance, more memory, multiple resolutions, and a 4” print width, making it suitable for a wide range of applications and ideal for high-volume printing. Moreover, it accommodates a large 8.2” outer-diameter label roll and ribbon lengths of up to 600 m.   


Print speeds are up to 14”/second for the 203-dpi model, 10”/second for the 300-dpi model, and 4”/second for the 600-dpi model, which is ideal for very small 2D barcodes, graphics, fine print, and other ultra-high-resolution images. All printers also come standard with internal Ethernet, USB 2.0, USB host, parallel, and serial interfaces.


Desktop Series—High Performance and Durable Design


With a 4” print width, the desktop barcode label printer series delivers high-speed printing, with an industry-best of 8”/second for the industry standard print resolution of 8 dots/mm (203 dpi), and 6”/second at 12 dots per mm (300 dpi). Standard interfaces include USB 2.0, USB-A Host, 10/100 Mbps Ethernet, and serial connectivity.  


The desktop series is designed for applications including shipping labels, compliance, product ID labels/tags, automobile service shops, walk-in shipping/mail centers, and inventory control for stock rooms.

  

Mobile Series—Compact and Rugged Design


The mobile receipt printer series offers 2” and 3” print widths with USB 2.0, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and Apple MFi standard interfaces options. With their high-speed processors and extensive memory, both units can print at speeds of up to 4”/second. The models are equipped with high-capacity rechargeable lithium-ion batteries that can power the units to print receipts for up to 12 hours on a single battery charge.


The mobile series is the perfect combination of compact size, light weight, and high durability, all at an economical price. With a lightweight design, the mobile series is particularly suited for creating on-demand labels, receipts, tickets, and other items, making them ideal for use in manufacturing, transportation, logistics, and retail.
