The world of business is always changing and broadening in complexity, on macro and micro levels. Companies' needs change, and thus their methods evolve. Ways of doing business can become outdated not long after they make their way into common industry practice. Simply put, most aspects of the business world are ultimately less than predictable. All that said, certain things will always be necessary in specific industries. In nearly all sectors that sell or distribute consumer packaged goods, labels are essential. Whether to catch consumers' eyes on store shelves, satisfy government regulatory requirements – or, more often than not, both. That's where high-quality label printers enter the equation.
Epson established its name as a leading designer and manufacturer of printing technologies more than 30 years ago, and its label-specific models carry on the company's long tradition of excellence. Today, we'll take a closer look at the LabelWorks LW-PX700 Industrial Label Printer, a proven reliable Epson model that DuraFast is proud to supply.
"The PX700 Industrial Label Printer can create or import up to 100 different label designs and images."
Features and Specifications
The LabelWorks LW-PX700 is a lightweight, black-and-white label printer, but don't let its relatively compact size fool you: This machine is more than capable of enduring the rigors encountered within the context of heavy industry and warehouse settings. Its data storage space is sufficient for the creation or importing of up to 100 unique label designs or other custom images. For importing needs, the PX700 is compatible with large Microsoft Excel batch files, which users can transfer to the handheld label printer in mere seconds.
No matter how niche a company's packaging or how strict the labeling regulations, the PX700 can roll with the punches. It's suitable for a wide variety of specialty printing operations – wire markers, international shipping labels, magnetic tape, reflective tags, adhesive materials, self-laminated and even glow-in-the-dark labels. Also, this black-and-white printer can easily be programmed with hot keys that make such specific settings immediately accessible with a single touch. The spectrum of choices provided by the PX700 also encompasses label dimensions. It can handle labels with widths from 1/8 to 1 inch (4 to 24 millimeters) and work with any size its compatible materials offer. Additionally, it can produce labels of varying lengths – some full, some half-size – as needed, even in the context of one task.
Given the importance of the bottom line to any business, Epson offers a number of contingencies that address the cost-related difficulties companies can encounter. The rollback technology of the PX700 limits lead margins to 4 mm, which saves material and, in turn, money, on each label printed. Finally, the device is covered by a comprehensive lifetime warranty in the event repairs are required.
Ideal Use Cases
The PX700 printer is, as its full title implies, ideal for all industrial labeling applications, particularly the back of house warehouse and fulfillment center operations that grease the wheels of traditional retail and e-commerce alike. In such situations, specificity is of the utmost importance: For one thing, if labels are incorrectly printed and thus shipped to the wrong destination or somehow held up by UPS, FedEx or the U.S. Postal Service due to the error, this can lead to the sort of client displeasure that all too often ends up as lost business.
Even more urgent than customer satisfaction is the need to comply with state and federal regulations, a requirement particularly important to food and beverage producers, as well as pharmaceutical companies. Labeling mistakes for these businesses can bring about graver consequences than lost business, ranging from government investigations to crippling fines and any number of other civil or criminal penalties.
For these purposes, the clear, easily customizable black-and-white labels that the PX700 prints in seconds will be ideal, serving their users well and keeping the consequences mentioned above from their doorstep.
