When it comes to essential signage and labelling, don’t leave it to chance. Every professional knows that the benefits of a compliant and effective labelling solution far outweigh the initial cost of a rugged and dependable label printer.
Whether you are rewiring and cabling an existing facility or working on new construction, we know that clearly marked wires and cables, equipment and machinery, and clear, durable safety signage is essential. Poor labelling results in a number of issues with far-reaching safety and operational concerns. Some of these are:
- Errors in the use of equipment on site
- Breach of internal company policies
- Breach of Health & Safety standards
- Errors in equipment testing, accreditation or documentation
- Non-compliance resulting in invalid insurance cover
- Confusion during evacuation drills or emergencies.
With this in mind, Brother offers a range of industrial label printers designed specifically for tough environments, both indoor and outdoor. Today’s Brother labelling machines are the most feature-packed, versatile, practical, and easy-to-use labelling machines we’ve ever produced. With super-fast printing, efficient cutting, wireless connectivity on selected models plus industry symbols and templates at your fingertips, you’re guaranteed to be more productive on-site.
Label Printers hard at work
The flexibility, portability and durability of our industrial Label Printers, combined with the TZe labels’ ability to withstand even the harshest conditions and environments, make labelling for plant maintenance and repair operations simple even in tough conditions. By using our Strong Adhesive and Flexible ID tapes, you can be sure the labels stick and remain stuck to even the most challenging surfaces, even if it is rough, textured, or uneven, whether heated or not. All of our laminated labels are highly resistant to dirt, grease, grime, and common industrial solvents like acetone.
In a manufacturing environment, Brother label printers produce low cost, professional quality labels for applications in the warehouse, machine shop and factory. TZe laminated labels have been tested to meet strict manufacturing requirements, including chemical exposure, extreme temperatures and abrasion.
They can be integrated into a manufacturing resource planning system and produce laminated labels directly from a database for bin box and shelf labels, parts and sub-assembly number labels, wiring diagrams and serial number labels. TZe laminated labels, available in industry-standard colours, are perfect for pipe marking, on-the-spot safety labels, inspection and calibration stickers, window stickers and small signs.
In an engineering environment, whether you are at a project’s planning stage with numerous revisions, re-designs and approvals, or at the final stage working at the actual project site, our laminated labels are designed specifically for harsh conditions, such as construction sites, for both indoor and outdoor use and are excellent for attaching warning and safety notices to heavy machinery and construction trailers. Create professional warning signs and information labels to instruct your customers and co-workers. Wider tapes and fluorescent colours are available for container management and safety, hazard and gas ID.
Choosing the right label printer to meet your needs.
Labelling innovations have come a long way, and advanced label printers with Wi-Fi and smart device connectivity are capable of working seamlessly with your mobile apps to support effortless mobile printing, label creation, and the transfer of labelling templates between your smart devices. This allows for greater consistency and accuracy to significantly cut down on the time and costs spent making reprints.
The PT-E550WVP supports our free Mobile Cable Label Tool app for Apple and Android mobile devices. With its wide range of templates, such as danger and caution signs, you can quickly and conveniently design compliant labels on your smartphone or tablet to print on the PT-E550W. All you need to do is download the application and then search for your supported device.
Look for portable label printers that can be powered using rechargeable Lithium-ion batteries to help dramatically streamline the cable labelling process, whether you are in the office or in the field. No more pre-printing stacks of labels and going through the time-wasting mess of sorting them out at the job site itself, which could lead to even more errors. With a portable connected label printer, you simply print the correct labels where and when you need them.
Only a robust, professional-grade labelling solution is specifically designed to stand up to the rigours of such high-volume printing and also include advanced features and connectivity to do it all quickly, reliably and effectively.
And then, your labelling solution is only as good as the actual labels themselves, and even the most advanced labelling solution can be let down by poor quality labels that fade and smear over time, or are simply difficult to read. Which is why you should always consider using high-quality, durable laminated tapes and labels that are designed to withstand abrasions, water, spills, heat, cold and harsh environments, while remaining sharp and clearly legible – not just for years, but for decades to come.
When choosing a label printer, it’s important to consider solutions that offer and are compatible with a wide range of superior supplies such as flexible ID tapes, self-laminating tapes, flag tapes, as well as heat shrink tubes.
Convinced that you need a labelling solution that will stand up to all these factors? Then it’s time to take a look at Brother’s industrial labelling solutions. As a leader in print innovation and the preferred choice for the installation and identification of voice and data cables in the telecom and datacom industry worldwide, you will find the perfect fit for your labelling needs!
