Portable label printer

16 May 2012 Manufacturing / Production Technology, Hardware & Services

The Brady BMP 71 portable label printer is claimed to be the fastest printer in its class and can print labels to identify cables and wires, components and equipment.

With more than 400 different label options for printing on over 30 different types of materials, it can be used in the telecom/datacom and electrical fields, logistics labelling, safety identification, pipe marking, asset ID, laboratory ID, information signs, circuit board and component labelling, industrial barcode labelling and security ID.

Designed to operate in harsh industrial environments, the BMP 71 has a large full colour LCD that allows the user to see exactly what the label is going to look like before being printed out. On-screen indicators display important status information such as label part number, size and colour, amount of labels remaining on loaded roll, battery level, label and area status, and current font size and rotation.

A menu-driven user interface and a full keyboard layout available in four versions – QWERTY, AZERTY, QWERTZ and CYRILLIC – make it quick and easy to create labels using text, symbols and coding. With a fast print speed of 38 mm/sec, the device can print on all label types and materials including PermaSleeve wire markers, indoor-outdoor vinyl, polyester die-cut labels, flag labels, self-laminating wire markers, reflective, phosphorescent and tamper-resistant labels, all available from Grafo Wiremarkers.

Continuous labels up to 1016 mm long can be printed with widths adjustable in six different sizes to a maximum 46 mm. Up to 25 lines can be printed per label. Other capabilities include batch label printing, the ability to serialise data, printing mirror image and built-in Smart Cell technology that automatically formats information on the label to eliminate mistakes and wastage.

The printer provides full functionality without being connected to a PC so is completely portable (or it can be connected to a PC via a USB port). It is lightweight at only 2,5 kg and is supplied with a durable hard carry case. Up to 4000 labels can be printed before the battery requires recharging. A sleep mode conserves battery power when the printer is not in use. The built-in memory enables storage of over 100 000 labels and a built-in time/date stamp is included.

Brady’s LabelMark labelling software expands the capabilities of the BMP 71 with added features and allows the user to design, edit and print customised labels. The software is fully compatible with Microsoft Office, AutoCAD applications and more. The Markware software enhances label creation, combining text with graphics, over 600 standardised symbols and barcodes.
