How often do you have to replace that industrial rated printer?  Is your current printer versatile on label printing options?  Do you have a separate printer for UHF RFID or on-metal tagging?  How current is the technology in your printer?  How much is your printhead replacement costing your company?

The labels you print are the foundation for maintaining critical operations.  From manufacturing to transportation, healthcare or a retail supply chain, the quality of your printer can determine if you’ll be getting products out in time.  Avoid spending unnecessary time and money on returned freight because your machine couldn’t handle the printing.

A globally certified industrial printer with multiple options for label printing and smart technology can save you time, money, and business relationships!

If your industrial printer fritz’s out again, you’ll have to spend that much time troubleshooting.  You may even have to spend more money for a repair person to come fix it.  That would mean putting several orders on hold, all because of a printer.

And just how well does that old printer work that you’re using now?  How long ago did you purchase it?  Technology advances fairly quickly so chances are it’s out of date already.  So why not get a true industrial printer that can evolve with your needs?

A durable industrial printer that is compact with multiple options to printing images, text, barcodes, and smart labels is what your company needs as it grows.  You need an industrial printer with an option to print standard labels with RFID chips and antennae embedded into the label.

Avoid misreads and no-reads with compliance labeling and precision printing with 203 dpi, 300 dpi, and 600 dpi options.  Add factory- or field-installable RFID technology or an on-metal tagging solution.  Consider what this would do to enhance your business and your customer relationships with greater tracking abilities and deeper visibility.  What would it take to create happy customers in your industry?

Machine Quality + Money

How often are you having to either buy a new printer or get the hone you have fixed because of the harsh environmental conditions of your facility?  Obtain a true industrial printer that has a durable metal frame with easy side loading capability.  With a wide range of printing label formats on a variety of media types, it is important to keep up to date with firmware advancements.  Invest in an industrial printer with the processing power and memory to easily support update firmware updates and printing tools.

When a printer malfunctions or is outdated, it has the potential to cause label malfunctions.  This can result in the rejection of shipments to your customers, causing you to possibly pay chargeback and added fees.  The chargeback alone could be as high as $10,000 for just one shipment.  How much is that worth to your company?  What about your company’s reputation?

Globally Certified and Quality Compliance

A durable industrial printer should be designed with top standards in mind.  Obtain an industrial printer that is globally certified on at least six continents for multinational supply chains.  A top quality printer should have no problems adhering to ANSI or ISO standards of quality.

UHF RFID & On-Metal Tagging Option

Smart labels are standard printed labels with RFID chips and antennae embedded into the label itself.  A chip is encoded with data relevant to the product, which is then read by appropriate scanners in your client’s chain.  On-metal RFID tagging enables you to print and encode on-metal labels for various surfaces.

These products are used in several industries.  So why not have one machine with the option to do it all?  Adaptive encoding technology creates greater flexibility to meet your customer’s needs.

Traceability for All Customers

Your clients may have different standards that they need you to adhere to.  Create happy customer relations and lasting relationships by understanding and conforming to their industry standards.  Invest in having a durable industrial printer with options to cover it all.
