Intermec Strengthens Printer Portfolio with Industry’s Fastest Mid-Range …

EVERETT, Wash.–(EON: Enhanced Online News)–Intermec, Inc. (NYSE: IN) today announced the PM43 and PM43c industrial
mid-range label printers, featuring the fastest throughput in their
class. Suited for harsh industrial environments including
transportation, manufacturing and distribution centers, the
metal-constructed PM43 and more compact PM43c printers are built to
perform by increasing uptime and reducing maintenance costs.

“The PM43 and PM43c industrial printers join Intermec’s recently
launched series of desktop printers and mobile receipt printers to round
out three new, innovative and future-proofed printing solutions designed
specifically to meet the demanding challenges faced by our customers
worldwide”

Built on more than 40 years of printing innovation history, the PM43 and
PM43c mark the newest additions to Intermec’s industry leading line of
rugged industrial printers. The printers offer the ultimate in reliable
and intuitive communication options with a unique full color
touch-screen, featuring a choice of 10 languages or easy to use
universal icons, and a multi-lingual intuitive web-based user interface.
The printers also 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 using WiFi or Ethernet connection.

“The PM43 and PM43c industrial printers join Intermec’s recently
launched series of desktop printers and mobile receipt printers to round
out three new, innovative and future-proofed printing solutions designed
specifically to meet the demanding challenges faced by our customers
worldwide,” said Chuck Dourlet, Intermec Vice President of Printers
Media.

With support for Precision Print, the PM43 and PM43c maximize uptime and
reduce frequent media adjustments. The printers print small barcodes,
text and images with pinpoint accuracy to save industrial customers time
and money. The PM43 and PM43c also offer the fastest deployment time in
the market with innovative no-touch configuration via an optional
embedded RFID chip. This patented capability eliminates 80 percent (for
one device) to 99 percent (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 printers also deliver advanced connectivity features
to increase productivity and deliver process efficiencies. As the
industry’s only industrial printers available with WiFi- and
CCX-Certification and with additional Bluetooth connectivity, the
printers offer a leading range of industry standard and supported
wireless connectivity options. Each printer also comes equipped with
Ethernet connectivity and network protocol IPv6 to ensure long-term
enterprise scalability and investment protection.

The PM43 and PM43c also help to reduce labeling errors and increase
process efficiencies with Intermec’s industry leading 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.

“As the costs related to manufacturing operations continue to climb, it
is imperative for companies to have reliable, efficient and intuitive
technology solutions. Intermec’s PM43 and PM43c printers are designed to
deliver workers the quality and speed needed for industrial printing
jobs, while instinctively working with other peripheral industrial
technologies,” said Richa Gupta, Barcode Analyst, VDC Research Group.
“With enhanced connectivity options and seamless integration, Intermec
is showcasing its dedication to minimize operational downtimes and
enhance process efficiencies.”

Dan Hare, Vice President of Matrix Systems, Inc., which recently won
“Technology Innovator of the Year” at the Intermec Partner Summit Event
in January 2012, said “Matrix has always considered smart printing to be
a brilliant innovation, and Intermec’s next-generation PM43 industrial
printer continues to revolutionize industrial thermal printing to help
maximize uptime and simplify operation and setup.”

The new PM series mid-range industrial printers are available globally
through Intermec distribution channels.
