Intermec has released its PM43 and PM43c industrial mid-range label printers, featuring what the company claims is the fastest throughput in their class. Suitable for harsh industrial environments including transportation, manufacturing and distribution centres, the metal-constructed PM43 and more compact PM43c printers are built to increase uptime and reducing maintenance costs.
The printers offer the ultimate in reliable and intuitive communication options with a unique full colour touch-screen, a choice of 10 languages or easy to use universal icons, and a multi-lingual intuitive web-based user interface. The printers are also said to reduce IT support needs with integrated device management, allowing the printers to be monitored from anywhere in the world via Intermec handheld computers, laptops, smart phones or tablet computers.
The printers print small barcodes, text and images. The PM43 and PM43c are also claimed to offer the fastest deployment time in the market with innovative no-touch configuration via an optional embedded RFID chip. This patented capability eliminates 80 per cent (for one device) to 99 per cent (for multiple devices) of time and resources in deployments by allowing the printers to be configured without having to open the printer box or power up the devices.
The PM43 and PM43c help reduce labelling errors and increase process efficiencies with smart printing capabilities, enabling users to easily create stand-alone applications developed through the embedded programming language and allowing users to directly control other devices such as scanners, scales, keyboards and other peripherals through the printer.
