Economical labeling solution with Epson LabelWorks PX Printers
Epson LabelWorks PX is a line of Epson’s thermal label printing solutions dedicated to designing and manufacturing portable industrial label printers to accommodate clients where desktop label printers do not provide the utmost efficiency.
Epson LabelWorks produced the PX Label Printers including the LW-PX300, LW-PX350, LW-PX400, LW-PX700, LW-PX750, LW-PX800 and LW-PX900. The innovation behind this line of label printers is that they are portable and can be used on-site as needed. Also, they are able to print labels to be applied on shrink tubes, magnetic tapes, industrial tapes, self-laminating tapes, and many other areas.
Applications of Epson LabelWorks PX Printers
There are a multitude of applications where these labels can be used. Some of these applications include: safety marking and barcode identification, cable labeling, labels for vials and samples in the healthcare industry, and marking labels for construction equipment.
Industries that can benefit from PX Label Printers
The PX Label Printers are ideal for clients working in industries that require label printing away from a standard stationary office setting, such as manufacturing, healthcare, construction, transportation, electrical, engineering, oil, gas and energy, aviation, and much more.
The printers have various compatibilities with which material types are used for label printing. Additionally, they come with many features such as the ability to import designs or spreadsheets from desktop applications like Excel or PDF.
They can also be connected to mobile devices or printers through wireless LAN or Bluetooth, and have the auto-rewind feature to minimize wasted materials in the label printing process. Additionally, another impressive feature with the PX Label Printers is the Label Editor software that allows clients to custom design their labels and upload their designs to the PX Label Printer directly.
The PX Label Printers are designed with efficiency as a priority, and are geared towards minimizing waste of material, producing shorter margins, and printing more labels per cartridge. They also come with a lifetime warranty that allows clients to replace any broken hardware with another unit free of charge.
Thermal printing solutions
Unlike inkjet printers, thermal printers don’t produce images by spraying ink through a nozzle. Instead, thermal printers use these tiny heating elements which transfer or activate pigments. The most common use of thermal printers is for wayfinding markers, labels, barcodes, shipping labels, safety signs, and other items that are heavily used.
Categories of thermal printers
Thermal printers have two categories: thermal transfer printers and direct thermal printers.
Thermal transfer printers
Thermal transfer printers transfer a solid ink from a ribbon onto a label supply using a thermal print head to create a permanent ribbon. The label supply is usually made from nylon, vinyl, polyester or other thick materials.
A ribbon is typically made from resin, wax or a combination of these materials. Heat and pressure are used to bond the ribbon to the label supply.
Direct thermal printers
Chemically-treated paper is used in direct thermal printers. This paper darkens when heated by a thermal print head. There is not a separate toner, ink, or ribbon supplies used by direct thermal printers, and this type of printer is mostly used for standard print items like shipping labels and receipts.
