Toshiba Highlights Thermal Barcode Printers at MODEX 2016

ATLANTA, Ga. (March 30, 2016) — Toshiba America Business Solutions spotlights its thermal barcode printers featuring the latest in wireless and double-sided technology at MODEX 2016, April 4-7 at the Georgia World Congress Center, Booth 2320 in Atlanta. Toshiba representatives are set to demonstrate the company’s latest line of thermal barcode printers, which enable label-intensive environments to operate more efficiently and cost-effectively, at “the Greatest Supply Chain Show on Earth.”

Toshiba’s DB-EA4D, enabled by the latest in double-sided 2ST™ direct thermal technology, simultaneously prints on the front and back of a label to streamline organizations’ pack-and-ship process. The ability to concurrently print both a shipping label and packing slip expedites the multiple steps in shipping and eliminates processing errors. The DB-EA4D’s two-sided printing also reduces the number of printers and labels necessary thereby allowing companies to operate more sustainably.

MODEX 2016 attendees will also see Toshiba’s recently-introduced desktop BFV-4 series of thermal barcode printers. The compact and top-loading, clamshell design allows for easy media swaps in tight spaces. The printers’ USB, Ethernet and wireless or Bluetooth interface options enable sharing between departments, throughout a building or a dedicated single station, while tackling the distinct label-making needs within supply chain, manufacturing and logistics environments.

With speeds up to six inches per second, the B-FV4 series – available in both thermal (BFV-4T) and direct thermal (BFV-4D) models – delivers up to 57 four-by-six inch labels per minute to accommodate the busiest of environments and the BFV-4T can use a 300 meter ribbon for optimal efficiency.

Toshiba’s latest thermal barcode printers also feature emulations such as ZPL®, EPL®, DPL®and IPL® (200 dots per inch) for seamless and efficient integration within any organization’s existing operation. Users may easily switch emulations via Toshiba’s settling tool utility.  

“We’re looking forward to demonstrating our unique line of thermal barcode printers that address the diverse needs of the supply chain, manufacturing and logistics professionals visiting MODEX 2016,” Toshiba America Business Solutions Chief Marketing Executive, Bill Melo said. “Attendees will see a variety of applications that are addressing their increasing demands for added mobility and efficiency with a very compelling total cost of ownership.”
