Intermec (www.intermec.com) says it designed these products to set a new standard in user friendliness and flexibility joining the healthcare-optimized PC23d wristband and label printer announced in February to round out a new line of desktop printers with a purpose-built platform and innovative design.
Desktop Printers for Light Duty Labeling
Intermec Inc. announced the new PC43d and PC43t desktop printers for light duty labeling applications in transportation, courier, hospitality, manufacturing, warehouse and office environments.
The new PC43d and PC43t printers are available in 4 inch direct thermal and 4 inch thermal transfer, respectively, and are designed for space-constrained settings with a compact design. The entire PC Series also offers eight inches per second throughput.
“Built with customer challenges in mind, Intermec’s PC Series of desktop printers are designed specifically to empower the user,” said Chuck Dourlet, Intermec vice president of Printers & Media. “With a highly intuitive and flexible design, Intermec’s newest line of printers offer a fast return on investment by empowering users with simple set up, various ease of use and maintenance features, and a modular design enabling future upgrades for investment protection.”
The PC Series is equipped with a universal Icon interface or color LCD in 10 languages to reduce training and support needs while maximizing uptime. The PC Series also includes the ability for one-handed media loading and quick configuration via a USB stick device, making the printers easy to install and maintain.
The printers are programmable with the ability to directly add standard USB keyboards, scales or other peripherals for customized applications that simplify processes and can eliminate hardware. The PC Series also comes with modular connectivity options for easy migration into the existing network environments. USB is standard along with optional serial, parallel, secure Ethernet or dual wireless card with Bluetooth and CCX-compliant 802.11 b/g/n.
“The PC Series of printers are fast, easy to use and compatible in many different environments,” said Dan Cheresh, president at Informs. “We’re excited to see the substantial impact these new products will be able to provide our customers.”
“The launch of the PC43 printers has not only enabled Intermec to extend the benefits of its user-friendly platform to most light duty printing environments, they have also introduced a product that is highly aligned with the needs of the rapidly emerging SMB (Small-Medium Business) market,” said Drew Nathanson, vice president of VDC Research Group’s Auto ID practice.
