Graphic Products Inc. has released its newest thermal transfer labeler, the DuraLabel 2000 PLUS handheld label printer. Printing labels on 1/2″, 1″, and 2″ vinyl supply and operating on a rechargeable battery, the DuraLabel 2000 PLUS offers many features. Three main features are: a large LCD screen, zero printer cooldown time required, and a fast print speed.
The printer’s viewable LCD screen (2.62″ x 1.31″) displays up to five lines of a label design and provides an easy to read, high resolution display (256×128 pixels).
The DuraLabel 2000 PLUS contains two alternating heat elements, which means zero printer cooldown time is required. The printer will not overheat, then shut down at inconvenient times during the labeling process, which saves users time in generating more printed labels.
Printing at 0.40″ per second, the DuraLabel 2000 PLUS prints labels approximately 54% faster than the leading competitor’s handheld labeler, with printed labels maintaining industrial quality properties.
“Another important feature is the auto-size setting for text and images,” says Jeff Dahl, manufacturing operations manager at Graphic Products. “Taking into account the number of lines on the label, the printer automatically sizes text and images to entirely fill the space on the label—eliminating the need to manually input the sizes in an exhaustive ‘guess-and-check’ process often required when using other handheld labelers.”
Weighing 2.7 pounds, the DuraLabel 2000 PLUS can be especially useful for industrial labeling applications including 5S labeling, pipe marking, equipment identification, rack labeling, electrical panel labeling, safety information labeling, barcode labeling, wire and cable wrapping, and valve tagging.
Additional DuraLabel 2000 PLUS features:
- Pre-installed library consists of 250 industrial safety symbols
- Battery prints 100′ of labels on one charge
- Soft key menu system enables quick navigation and design
- Printer saves up to 32 label designs
- Manual cutter produces clean label edges
