Epson has launched 'LabelWorks LW-Z900FK' hands-free industrial label printer at the on-going Labelexpo Europe, the world's largest event for the label and package printing industry, currently on in Brussels till October 2.
Suited to installers, maintenance contractors, builders and plumbers, the LabelWorks LW-Z900FK is said to be ideal for rapidly labeling electrics, cabling, including audio/video cables, data communications equipment, as well as pipes and machinery, in offices, factories, server rooms and construction sites.
A unique Pick & Print function enables the LW-Z900FK to print the next label in a pre-set series when it detects that a user has 'picked' the previous label- this is combined with automatic full and half cutting. This helps save time in repetitive jobs, as does its ability to save up to 100 different label patterns.
Hands-free operation is made possible by an automatic cutter that cuts full or half-size labels, and magnets that can be used to hold the printer onto steel surfaces. Text entry is made easier by a central keyboard - alternatively a PC keyboard can be used while using Epson's Label Editor Software.
The LabelWorks LW-Z900FK can use up to seven different tape widths - from 4 to 36mm - and three different shapes of die-cut labels, all on tapes measuring up to 9m long. Though the tapes it uses are affordable, it minimizes their use, offering label margins as small as 1mm to save money.
Label types include heat-resistant, glow in the dark, reflective and many more. The LabelWorks LW-Z900FK produces clear and concise 360 dpi resolution labels. Its built-in carry handle and protective casing ensure that it's at home in demanding industrial environments.
