TOSHIBA TEC has launched the DB-EA4D, a 2 sided direct thermal label printer. The first of a new series, the DB-EA4D can print directly onto a label’s backing paper, thus increasing usability without effecting functionality. Not only does the printer add value, but importantly, it reduces waste and is ideal for applications requiring dual output, providing an efficient alternative to single sided solutions – perfect for the manufacturing industry and confined retail and logistical environments.
Compact and solid, the DB-EA4D’s small footprint is the perfect solution for the tightest of spaces. Printing using two thermal heads to simultaneously print on the front and back of direct thermal labels, this high performing printer can reach speeds of up to 6ips in a single pass, eliminating waste and reducing labelling errors.
Offering customers a low cost of ownership, Toshiba’s DB-EA4D saves organisations money by using fewer consumables in the print process, and thus reduces storage space and shipping costs.
Easy to operate, the intuitive LCD backlit menu is supported by colour LED notification lights with a universal design. The auto feed enables quick paper loading and the tool-less replacement of essential componements such as the printhead and platen roller offer ease of maintenance.
The DB-EA4D comes with Bartender as standard and with the added option to download enhanced software, customers can design bespoke labels to meet their specific business needs. Optional extras include a paper roll holder that gives the printer greater flexibility.
Greening the Auto ID operations is one element of a company’s strategy to eliminate its carbon footprint. A clean energy portfolio, based on sound economics, creates compelling value and provides a clear competitive advantage. The Toshiba DB-EA4D is designed for low power consumption, further putting green design into practice.
"Continuous improvement in environmental performance is a heartfelt commitment throughout the organisation," said Nobuhiko Takao, CEO and President TOSHIBA TEC Europe. "At TOSHIBA TEC, we work hard to influence positive changes that lead to measurable environmental benefits. With the DB-EA4D Label Printer, our customers know what they have in hand: a user-friendly, compact industrial printer that for years on end delivers tangible benefits to the supply chain."
