Convenient coding: the hand-held printer
Issued by Pyrotec - Feb 13th 2018, 09:54
Coding and marking have come a long way since the concept of a machine-readable barcode was first patented in America in 1949. Innovation in this field has been fuelled by a growing demand for solutions that enable traceability through the entire value chain. It’s also been driven by a demand for coding technology that produces durable and legible codes, efficiently, on a variety of substrates.
One innovation that’s been most notable recently is the emergence of the hand-held inkjet printer. Pyrotec PackMark has added the Anser U2 Hand-Held Printer to its stable – bringing the world’s most lightweight and compact mobile printer to Southern Africa.
This unique inkjet printer is not only easy to use and transport, but also extremely versatile – and therefore suited to a broad range of industries. You can swiftly produce high-quality codes on almost any substrate, from PVC pipes and plastic bags to concrete and outer cartons, at any desired angle!
