Toshiba Ribbon Save Helps Reduce Costs
Location: United States
The ongoing ribbon costs of barcode printing can add up. So users should consider their options to reduce the use of ribbon and lower overall costs.
With Toshiba, Ribbon Save is a feature that can dramatically reduce the use of ribbon by lifting the printhead and not advancing the ribbon when possible.
The label continues to advance while this is happening and the ribbon engages once again when printing needs to resume.
This feature works best when the printable space of a label is just a portion of the overall area. By not advancing the ribbon when there is nothing to print, it is possible to save considerable amounts of ribbon.
This directly impacts the bottom line and ensure operational costs are kept to a minimum.
