TOKYO (BUSINESS WIRE)
First showcase of new label printing technology that reduces costs
and benefits the environment
TEC CORPORATION (TOKYO:6588) has launched the DB-EA4D,
a two-sided direct thermal label printer. The first of a new series, the
DB-EA4D can print directly onto a label’s backing paper, thus increasing
usability without effecting functionality. Not only does the printer add
value, but importantly, it reduces waste and is ideal for applications
requiring dual output, providing an efficient alternative to single
sided solutions - perfect for the transport and logistics industry.

Specifically, shipping label can be used for service logistics,
E-Commerce company and food & beverage manufacturing. Event ticketing is
for ticketing centre such as theatres, and tag printing can be used in
retail stores, service logistics, and clothing stores.
Compact and solid, the
DB-EA4D’s small footprint is the perfect solution for the tightest
of spaces. Printing using two thermal heads to simultaneously print on
the front and back of direct thermal labels, this high performing
printer can reach speeds of up to 6ips in a single pass eliminating
waste and reducing labelling errors. Furthermore, on-demand printing is
available for mutable data and dual conjunction data.
Offering customers a low cost of ownership, TOSHIBA’s DB-EA4D saves
organisations money by using fewer consumables in the print process, and
thus reduces storage space and shipping costs.
Easy to operate, the intuitive LCD backlit menu is supported by colour
LED notification lights with a universal design. The auto feed function
enables quick paper loading without opening the cover and the tool-less
replacement of essential componements such as the printhead and platen
roller offer ease of maintenance.
DB-EA4D comes with BarTender as standard and with the added option
to download enhanced software, customers can design bespoke labels to
meet their specific business needs. Optional extras include a paper roll
holder that gives the printer greater flexibility.
