Intermec has unveiled new PM43 and PM43c industrial mid-range label printers for transportation, manufacturing and distribution centres.
The company says the PM43 printers are metal-constructed and the PM43c printers are more compact and built to increase uptime and reduce maintenance costs.
The printers have full color touch-screens, a choice of 10 languages, universal icons, and a multi-lingual web-based user interface.
According to Intermec, 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.
Intermec Printers and Media Vice President Chuck Dourlet says the PM43 and PM43c 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,” he says.
Dourlet says 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 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,” he says.
Intermec develops and integrates products, services and technologies that identify, track and manage supply chain assets and information. Core technologies include rugged mobile computing and data collection systems, voice solutions that increase business performance, bar code printers, label media, and RFID.
