Printronix Auto ID debuted at Labelexpo Europe the RFID version of its T4000 thermal barcode printer.

This new, affordable and compact T4000 complements the company’s expanding range of high performance RFID printers. But where it differs, is that it additionally prints and encodes on-metal RFID tags as well as standard labels.

This distinctive feature makes it ideal for almost any RFID application, including asset tagging of tools and equipment used by healthcare, manufacturing, supply chain, IT, and service yard professionals.

“On-metal tags typically come with a foam insulator and metal foil backing, which makes them incompatible with most standard RFID printer/encoders,” explains Neil Baker, Printronix Auto ID’s Sales Manager UK, Ireland, Benelux & South Africa. “But because the T4000 RFID printer was designed from scratch, it was engineered to handle such media with ease.”

And because accuracy is critical in every application, the T4000 will back-up and completely overstrike, and then reprint, any RFID labels that fail to encode properly.

The T4000 can be ordered with or without RFID capability. Its small footprint and compact size ensure it can be housed in areas where space is limited but where enterprise-level performance and RFID printing are essential. Despite its small stature, the T4000 packs a powerful performance, easily printing up to 5,000 labels or tags a day at an impressive ten inches per second.
