Brother Unveils New Labeling Products For Supply Chain

WESTMINSTER, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Brother Mobile Solutions, Inc. (BMS), a premier provider of mobile and desktop printers, announces the launch of its groundbreaking new TD 4 Desktop Thermal Printer Series designed with ‘supply-chain-ready’ functionality for printing barcode labels, tags or receipts for virtually any application in the warehouse, transportation & logistics supply chain, manufacturing plant, retail, hospital, and other fast-paced environments. The newly unveiled product series was engineered to help the small-to-midsize business or warehouse meet new standards of speed driven by omni-channel commerce and the unprecedented demand for efficiency in shipping and product delivery.

Print Performance Meets Affordability

The TD 4 Desktop Thermal Printer portfolio includes industry-leading performance and connectivity along with seamless workflow integration delivered at a price point that is unmatched in the industry. The initial launch includes TD 4-inch printer models using direct thermal printing technology, which will be closely followed by thermal transfer printing models with similar high-performance specifications. Later in the year, additional higher performance platforms (including RFID) will also be introduced.

According to Ravi Panjwani, Vice President of Marketing and Product Management with Brother Mobile Solutions, “There is a tremendous volume of goods traveling across the supply chain driven by the boom of online commerce in recent years, and the expectation for super-efficient fulfillment now spans all industries. This trend requires a rethinking of operations with an eye on cost-effective solutions that can identify and track goods for fast delivery and return.”

Mr. Panjwani adds, “Brother’s new TD portfolio is designed for the SMB operation and a new generation of smaller urban warehouses often located closer to customers for quick or even same-day delivery. Our impressive TD line of desktop thermal printers is a perfect match for small and mid-size retailers, warehouses and manufacturers that have an ongoing need to lower operational costs, raise production levels and streamline manual labor processes.”

‘Built for Real Work’ across the Supply Chain

The Brother TD 4 Desktop Series includes three models: the TD-4410D, TD-4420DN and TD-4550DNWB. These models are well suited to a wide array of applications such as shipping labels, ‘license plate’ labels for managing containers or pallets, rack or aisle label identification for large containers or cartons, reusable tracking labels for totes or picked products and warehouse shelf label, to name a few.

The printers integrate seamlessly with industry leading WMS systems using design and print software tools like Seagull Scientific’s BarTender and Nicelabel’s Designer Express. In addition, Brother is a gold-level member of the SAP® Printer Vendor program and the Brother TD-4410D, TD-4420DN and TD-4550DNWB models are compliant with all requirements for device types as defined in the program. This enables easy printing to the TD 4 Desktop Thermal Printers direct from within SAP.

These precision-built barcode label printers deliver the right levels of performance, quality, and integration at an exceptional value. They incorporate reliable, hassle-free thermal printing technology and a wide selection of thermal media, including standard, premium, fast dry and waterproof receipt paper, along with paper and synthetic labels:(click for more)
