DB-EA4D WINS COVERED INTERNATIONAL “IF PRODUCT DESIGN AWARD”
The compact, rugged and robust DB-EA4D double-sided label printer has been designed to offer a low-cost and green solution for applications requiring dual output. With user-friendly operation and high-speed printing, this innovative technology provides a reliable and efficient alternative to traditional single-sided solutions. The iF product design award offers an important platform to have one’s product’s design quality professionally validated by an international jury of experts.
Today’s labeling solutions create waste by the need to throw away the backing paper. In line with its ever more green endeavours Toshiba has addressed this issue by developing the DB-EA4D 2-sided direct thermal printer which adds value and usability to a label’s backing paper, or the back of a ticket, by printing directly onto it.
COMPACT AND HIGH PERFORMING
“The solid design and small footprint ensures the printer has the flexibility to operate in any environment or application, from diverse transport and logistics industries requirements to confined retail and logistical operations. The label and backing paper are printed simultaneously, facilitating fast output of labels and receipts with speeds up to 6ips.”
LOW TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP
Using parcel deliveries as an example, the address label for a delivery can be printed at the same time as the delivery’s packing list is printed on the label’s backing paper. Dual-sided printing offers various savings aside from the lower media costs, e.g. reducing storage space and shipping costs as fewer label or receipts are required.
EASY TO OPERATE
The intuitive LCD backlit menu allows simple user operation, supported by colour LED notification lights (using colours distinguishable by the visually impaired). Auto-feed functionality enables trouble-free quick paper-loading, and easy maintenance is facilitated with tool-less replacement of key components like the printhead and platen roller.
The DB-EA4D is available with paper roll holder options, further enhancing the flexibility and range of applications for printing. With Bartender as standard and the option to download enhanced software, the user can easily design the label to meet the requirements of the business.
