Green Printing Solution by Toshiba Tec

DB-EA4D Barcode printer wins International Design Award for Green Printing

DB-EA4D

Cost-effective & Innovative: Green printing solution. Reduced costs throughout the life-cycle of the product, the ultimate in green printing credentials without compromising performance, usability and functionality. 2 sided label on demand printing solution makes paradigm shift of business.

 

Today’s labelling solutions create waste by the need to throw away the backing paper. In line with its ever more green endeavours Toshiba has addressed this issue by developing the DB-EA4D 2-sided direct thermal printer which adds value and usability to a label’s backing paper, or the back of a ticket, by printing directly onto it.

 

The solid design and small footprint ensures the printer has the flexibility to operate in any environment or application, from diverse transport and logistics industries requirements to confined retail and logistical operations.
The label and backing paper are printed simultaneously, facilitating fast output of labels and receipts with speeds up to 6ips

 

Using parcel deliveries as an example, the address label for a delivery can be printed at the same time as the delivery’s packing list is printed on the label’s backing paper. Dual-sided printing offers various savings aside from the lower media costs, e.g. reducing storage space and shipping costs as fewer label or receipts are required.

 

The intuitive LCD backlit menu allows simple user operation, supported by colour LED notification lights (using colours distinguishable by the visually impaired). Auto-feed functionality enables trouble-free quick paper-loading, and easy maintenance is facilitated with tool-less replacement of key components like the printhead and platen roller.
