Printers and barcode scanners offer reliable, on-demand labeling and tracking solutions for any industry. Our thermal transfer printers are available in stationary or portable systems that will help you create clear and professional labels, signs and tags designed to withstand the harshest environments. Barcode scanners are ideal for data collection and asset tracking. Additional tools like laminators and label attachment systems are also available for document and label management.
A barcode reader also called a barcode scanner, price scanner or point-of-sale ( POS ) scanner, is a hand-held or stationary input device used to capture and read the information contained in a barcode.
A barcode reader (or barcode scanner) is an electronic device that can read and output printed barcodes to a computer. Like a flatbed scanner, it consists of a light source, a lens and a light sensor translating optical impulses into electrical ones.
Barcodes are extremely versatile. They can be used for any kind of necessary data collection. This could include pricing or inventory information. … Because barcodes make it possible to track inventory so precisely, inventory levels can be reduced.
Handheld & Desktop Label Printers
Label printers use a wide range of label materials, including paper and synthetic polymer (“plastic”) materials. Several types of print mechanisms are also used, including laser and impact.
Desktop label printers are usually designed for light to medium-duty use with a roll of stock up to 4″ wide. They are quiet and inexpensive. Commercial label printers can typically hold a larger roll of stock (up to 8″ wide) and are geared for medium-volume printing.
Industrial label printers  are designed for heavy-duty, continuous operation in warehouses, distribution centers, and factories. Additionally, industrial portable label printers are designed for heavy-duty operation on location. They are usually handheld and come with an industrial hard case. Examples of applications are labeling for electrical installations, construction sites, and production floors where there are no computers.
laminators – laminating
A heated roll laminator uses heated rollers to melt glue extruded onto lamination film. This film is in turn applied to a substrate such as paper or card using pressure rollers. The primary purpose of laminating with such a machine is to embellish or protect printed documents or images. Heated roll laminators can vary in size from office based pouch laminators to industrial-sized machines. Such industrial machines are primarily used for high quantity/quality output by printers or print finishers.
Lamination is the technique of manufacturing a material in multiple layers so that the composite material achieves improved strength, stability, sound insulation, appearance or other properties from the use of differing materials. A laminate is a permanently assembled object by heat, pressure, welding, or adhesives.
