In response to the growing demand for linerless labelling, TSC Printronix Auto ID has just launched its first linerless industrial printer to add to its range of mobile and desktop linerless printers. The MB240 can print up to 10,000 labels a day with a tear-off kit or robust cutter. It is ideally suited to fast-paced sectors such as e-commerce, logistics, and food and drink.

The MB240 is compact and its all-metal construction will deliver trouble-free printing in the toughest and most demanding of environments. It can print up to 12 ips, has a heavy-duty cycle, and can handle 8-inch outer diameter (OD) label rolls. It has been tested for compatibility with the majority of linerless labels with permanent, removable or freezer-grade adhesives. Its special anti-adhesive linerless kit reduces residue from label adhesive and prevents paper jams. Worker safety has also been considered in its design with a cutter lock sensor and upper blade protector.

The global linerless label market is developing fast and is expected to reach USD 3.09 million* by 2032. The growth is driven, in part, by the need for more sustainable packaging as well as a requirement for more information to be included on labels.

“The MB240 linerless delivers on all fronts,” says Bob Vines, UK, Ireland & Nordics country manager for TSC Printronix Auto ID. “Linerless labeling can reduce raw material consumption by 15%, can add 40% more paper length per roll, and halve operational costs in transport, warehousing and material handling. It can also lower carbon emissions and reduce waste by 50%.“

Offers versatility to print up to 10,000 different length labels per day

Being able to print labels of any length from just one roll means that not only can comprehensive information be included but productivity can also be increased as operators don’t have to keep switching between rolls of different sized self-adhesive labels. Another much heralded advantage of linerless labelling is employee safety as the slip hazards of conventional liner backings are eliminated.

“The MB240 linerless Series simultaneously improves both your productivity and sustainability so, if you’re new to linerless labelling, or need to replace a device, it could be just the asset you’re looking for,“ suggests Bob.
