Honeywell has announced two bar code label printers, offering an entry-level unit for reliable industrial printing at what is said to be a competitive price.
Combining the reliability of an industrial-class product with the simplicity of a desktop printer, the PD43 and the compact PD43c printers are designed for use in the distribution centre, transportation (including airline passenger service), retail and healthcare industries. These new printers allow workers to conduct business-critical tasks such as airline ticketing, baggage tag printing, shelf label printing and pharmaceutical label printing.
“The PD43 and even-smaller PD43c pack our latest printing technology into a compact yet rugged package,” said Juan Picon, vice president and general manager, scanning, printing and media, Honeywell Scanning & Mobility. “… these new printers can scale with growing businesses at an accessible price point, helping organisations mind their bottom line without sacrificing performance.”
“VDC’s research shows that ease of use, reliability, and price-performance ratio are critical AIDC technology investment determinants,” said Richa Gupta, senior analyst, Auto-ID & Data Capture, VDC Research. “The demand for out-of-the-box ready industrial label printers is growing as IT managers are tasked with adopting solutions that enhance operational efficiencies.”
Suited for deployment in various demanding environments, the PD43 series is focused on performance, with fast print speeds of up to 20cm per second. Its rugged, all-metal enclosure and cast-aluminium print mechanism ensure maximum reliability and durability. And to simplify deployment and maintenance, each PD43 series printer includes an integrated web interface — just like the Honeywell PM series mid-range industrial printers.
