System ID / Barcode Printers
A barcode system isn't complete without a printer. Make sure you select the correct one that fits your specific needs. For example, do you need a thermal transfer or a direct transfer printer? What size labels will you print? Do you require a cutter, rewinder, or peeler? And what about DPI and durability? + Show More
Desktop printers are ideal for applications when budget and space are tight. The compact design enables them to fit on a desk, POS station, or a countertop and are recommended when printing less than 100 labels or tags per day. Also, the barcode label or tag needs to be larger than 1.5” x 0.5” in size, because these printers cannot print small barcodes.
Industrial printers are used in manufacturing and warehouse environments and are the most reliable and durable barcode printers. These printers are intended for printing barcode labels or tags 24/7 and can print detailed graphics and very large or very small barcodes on a variety of media, like paper and synthetics.
Mid-Range printers are more durable and rugged than desktop printers and recommended when printing around 1000 barcode labels or tags per day. These printers can accommodate a wide variety of barcode label and tag sizes and are able to print complex barcodes on a wide variety of media, including paper and synthetics. However, these printers may not be suitable for the most demanding environments.
Mobile printers are used in the field, on shipping and receiving docks, patient bedsides, retail checkouts, assembly lines, or anywhere a barcode label needs to be printed on demand. These printers require no cabling or wired network infrastructure, communicating through radio frequency or Bluetooth technology.
