High Performance in a Mid Range Printer

We’ve talked many times before about the various ways that you can scan bar codes, whether they are 1D, 2D or marked directly on the part, but in a way we’ve skipped a step! There’s no “chicken or the egg” confusion here. There’s no point in having a bar code scanner until there are bar codes to scan! For that to have happened, we need a bar code printer.

While technically you could use a consumer-grade all-in-one printer/scanner/fax machine/toaster/perpetual frustration machine (“Out of toner, again?!! I just replaced that cartridge last week!”) to print out your company’s bar codes, you’re going to quickly find out why, once again, it’s important to choose the right tool for the job. Not all printers are created equal. Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll highlight a few of them to help you see why.

Today, I’m going to point you in the direction of the Intermec PM43. It’s tough, it’s rugged, it’s compact, and it’s fast. At 12 ips, it has the quickest throughput of any printer in its class. Designed to be used in a wide variety of environments, the PM43 is equally at home in a fast-paced retail environment as it is in a dusty warehouse. It boasts Wi-Fi, CCX and Bluetooth connectivity, so it shouldn’t require any modification to your existing network infrastructure. This tough little printer even has the optional for a built-in “no-touch” configuration via RFID, making this a truly wireless device.

When you have packages going out to clients, customers or suppliers, you can’t afford to lose time while your employees wait for some consumer-grade inkjet printer. Your money would be going right out the door, while your products would not be. That’s why Intermec created the PM series. These printers are, as I said, fast. You’ll have bar code labels printed as fast as your employees can create them, ensuring that wherever they fit into your supply chain, they’ll be helping keep the gears oiled in the machine that is your business.

If you value productivity in your supply chain, you owe it to your company to investigate every possible boost in efficiency. Contact AbeTech today to find out if the Intermec PM43 is the right tool to help save your business time and money!
