Toshiba America Business Solutions partners with Panther and Premier Print & Services Group, Inc. (Premier) to create a printing innovation that’s significantly simplifying everyday packaging applications.
Representatives from Toshiba (booth S456) and Panther (booth S3803) are set to demonstrate the innovative printer at their respective booths during ProMat 2023 March 20 – 23 at Chicago’s McCormick Place.
Beyond streamlining everyday tasks for warehouse professionals, Toshiba’s Duplex Linerless Thermal Printer (DL1024) reduces costs and boosts productivity while helping organizations meet the demand for more sustainable printing solutions.
One-of-a-Kind Industrial Printer Boosts Production & Sustainability
Toshiba’s Duplex Linerless Thermal Printer simultaneously prints on both sides of a label without using a liner or backing material. Such ingenuity eliminates the plastic pouch and additional packing slip without producing any label liner waste enabling organizations to function more sustainably.
Rapidly delivering up to 24 labels per minute while featuring a considerable 3,000-label roll capacity, the Duplex Thermal Printer further enhances efficiency by reducing downtime with fewer label roll changes. Crisp and clear labeling is a snap considering the system’s near-edge printhead design and 203 dots-per-inch resolution.
The Duplex Thermal Printer is also available in a print-and-apply configuration from Panther, a ProMach product brand. This system deploys the company’s all-electric, servo-driven tamp applicator creating a fully automatic solution for more proficient operations. The printer additionally streamlines the distribution and fulfillment process while increasing efficiency by automatically applying both a shipping label and a packing list in a single application.
The DL1024 system utilizes Premier’s exclusive two-sided and multi-use LinerLess DuplexPackSlip® label. This unique label allows the Duplex Thermal Printer to create both a shipping label and a packing slip (or other content) without liner waste in one pass while helping reduce overall shipment processing costs by up to 40 percent.
Toshiba’s latest system meets this objective by reducing the consumables for an extra label as well as the materials necessary for attaching a packing list to a parcel. The DL1024 printer and LinerLess DuplexPackSlip® also have the flexibility to easily pivot between manual and auto-apply environments.
“We’re pleased to partner with both Panther and Premier while creating our DL1024 duplex linerless thermal printer, a first-of-its-kind industrial printer streamlining both hand and auto-apply applications,” states Toshiba America Business Solutions Vice President of Marketing and Strategic Business Development Bill Melo. “As the first and only duplex linerless thermal printer on the market, our aim is to help logistics companies improve throughput and reduce total operating costs while also lessening environmental impact.”
Authorized Toshiba reseller customers may purchase the manual apply Duplex Linerless Thermal Printer for a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $9,000.
