Printronix Auto ID Offers Thermal and RFID Printer

Printronix Auto ID, a provider of enterprise-level printing solutions, is unveiling the successor to its T6000 series printer. The new T6000e model is intended for industrial applications requiring high volumes and print quality, as well as features like RFID, the company reports.

This upgrade to the company's mid-range platform is available in both 4-inch and 6-inch versions. It offers 600-dpi printing, as well as the ability to print and encode RFID on both standard labels and on-metal tags. Its 14-inch-per-second print speed enables 10,000 labels to be printed daily, which the company says makes it suitable for manufacturing, retail and logistics environments.

An interchangeable printhead on the 4-inch model allows 600 dpi print resolution, as well as 203 and 300 dpi. This expands applications for users, the company explains, from straightforward shipping tags to intricate labels with detailed Asian characters required on items like PCB assemblies. The T6000e is built to be compatible with standard RFID printer-encoders, the firm notes. Able to encode and print on-metal and standard RFID labels and tags, the device can be used for tracking tools and equipment in the manufacturing, supply chain, IT, health-care and service-yard industries.

The printer has the built-in capability to back up and completely overstrike any RFID labels that fail to encode properly. The T6000e was built on the Printronix System Architecture platform. It comes with nine printer emulations for plug-and-playability in competitor environments, along with a large LCD color screen. The T6000e is backward-compatible with existing T6000 applications and can be specified with PrintNet Enterprise, a remote printer-management tool.
