Why Should You Consider Using an 8-inch Printer?
There are many ways that wide web printing can be used to your advantage. A few benefits that wide web printers offer over smaller printers are:
- Large Pallet Labels
In a typical warehouse, where pallets are stacked 20 to 30 feet high, labels can be tough to read from the ground level. Using a wide web printer allows the user to print large pallet labels, increasing human readability and eliminating the need to use a forklift to read cartons on upper shelves.
- Ability to Print Multiple-Up Labels
Another benefit of using a wide web printer is the ability to print multiple-up labels. Users can print a large packing label, pallet label and several small labels all from the same printer. Printing on-site from a single printer instead of multiple printers reduces the incidence of errors.
- Compatible with Line Matrix Printer Languages
Companies that are converting from line matrix printers to thermal printers will appreciate the T8000’s ability to emulate their existing line matrix printer language. The 8-inch label size is compatible with many companies’ existing applications and the language emulation software eliminates the need to write new programs.
- Improved Productivity and Reduced Errors
Some companies use a line matrix or laser printer in the office to print out large pallet labels or packing lists. Employees report to the office to pick-up their labels and attach them to pallets on the shipping dock or warehouse floor. Occasionally, these labels get mixed-up. Printing 8-inch labels on-site from a thermal printer reduces the chance of attaching the wrong label to the wrong pallet and eliminates wasted time going back and forth to the office. On-site printing reduces errors and improves productivity. The T8000 can also print from PDF and Postscript files.
Which Industries Use an 8-inch Printer?
You will find 8-inch printers in a wide variety of industries but are exceptionally popular in automotive, grocery, warehouse and chemical drum applications. The T8000 8-inch printer is compatible with many types of media including specialized label media used in chemical labeling.
