Toshiba’s New Thermal Barcode Printers and Automated Shipping System Collaboration Ensure Shipping Speed, Accuracy and Customer Satisfaction
LAS VEGAS, September 23, 2019 — Toshiba America Business Solutions is showcasing two new products at PACK EXPO 2019, Sept. 23-25, booth Upper South Hall 7677, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The company’s best-in-class pair of thermal barcode printers blend compact and durable designs with precision-accurate labeling. Toshiba also spotlights the Sprinter™ automated shipping system, a product collaboration with Panther Industries and StreamTech.
Toshiba’s just-introduced BA400 thermal bar code printer combines the latest in connectivity – USB, Bluetooth, Ethernet and Near-Field Communication – with the necessary throughput (up to eight inches-per-second) to fulfill virtually any manufacturing, distribution, retail and healthcare labeling requirements.
Featuring a sturdy, compact design with top-loading for fast media and ribbon swaps, the BA400 integrates easily within most office and warehouse settings. Parts lifecycle alerts and simple printhead and platen replacement further ease product usage.
Toshiba’s newly-minted B-EX4T3HS thermal bar code printer creates clear, acutely scannable, high-resolution labels – up to 600 dots-per-inch – with precision accuracy. The B-EX4T3HS is distinctly engineered to tackle pharmaceutical, medical device and electronic component label applications while also addressing the meticulous labeling needs of other compliance-driven organizations.
Toshiba’s B-EX4T3HS handles the complexity of printing smaller labels – width and height as small as 0.51 and 0.12 inches respectively – with speed (up to six inches per second) and extreme precision. The printer’s center alignment eliminates media shifts to ensure the consistently accurate placement of barcode data on labels.
Toshiba representatives will additionally showcase Sprinter, a product collaboration with StreamTech and Panther Industries. Sprinter leverages Toshiba’s best-in-class thermal barcode printer technology, Panther Industries’ Shadow print and apply product, and StreamTech’s conveyor featuring automatic weight and dimensioning capabilities. Sprinter easily integrates within existing supply chain and logistics environments to affordably fulfill e-commerce orders while automating the shipping process.
“We are looking forward to visiting with supply chain and logistics professionals from across North America while demonstrating the compelling blend of innovation and low total-cost-of-ownership our products deliver,” said Toshiba America Business Solutions Chief Marketing Executive Bill Melo. “Toshiba’s newest printers and latest product collaboration with Panther Industries and StreamTech will simplify as well as accelerate the shipping and e-commerce fulfillment process for logistics operations, which is essential to maintaining customer satisfaction and retention.”
“Panther Industries’ Shadow Printer-Applicator using the Toshiba B-EX4T1 is a great fit for StreamTech's Sprinter automated dimension, weigh, label and scan order-fulfillment application, which delivers up to 1,500 parcels per hour in an all-in-one, cost-effective manner,” said Bob Miller, StreamTech's Applications Manager. “Sprinter may also be implemented as overall control platform for small to medium fulfillment conveyor system operations.”
Toshiba’s BA400 and BEX4T3HS printers have a beginning list price of $1,195 and $4,780, respectively. Both products are now available for purchase via authorized Toshiba resellers.
