Label printers can be used for a wide range of applications. Using printing methods such as direct thermal printing or thermal transfer, labels can be made for small products such as circuit boards and medical equipment like surgical instruments and vials. In addition to manufacturing labels for small items, printers can also produce identifying labels for barrels and items placed on pallets.
Durable Construction of Label Printers
Depending on the application, companies may need to print long runs of labels. "...Many label printers from manufacturers such as Zebra and Eltron are capable of production runs that last as long as 24 hours." In addition to operating for long periods of time, Zebra and Eltron printers are also capable of producing labels quickly. Some of the models these companies manufacture can print as much as one foot of labels per second. The machines can also produce labels that feature vivid graphics and crisp text.
In addition to industrial label printers, companies can also purchase small label printers that fit on desktops. These can be used to produce shipping labels for small packages, barcodes and receipts. While most models are designed to connect to a computer, some label printers are designed for mobile use and can be connected to a smartphone.
