Heavy Duty Labelling

Have you ever had a time where you thought owning a label maker would make your life 10 times easier? If so, then the Epson LW-Z900FK is your solution. Upon picking up the device, we found it brimming with an industrial look, especially its bulky and rugged appearance. Rather similar to phones cases that are made to withstand high drops, in fact, with its entire body coated in red and black .

This label maker would be a great addition to people who usually handle printing labels for computer wires if they are working in server rooms, or maybe just a stay at home mum that is selling homemade cookies in jars to sell. It is a simple product to use that comes with multiple amazing features.

First up is the print itself. There are several ways for you to customise your print, and one of the most important ones is the ease of pulling out the label. This machine allows you to either enable ‘‘Drop Stop” which will allow your label to hang on and prevent from having to scramble to find the fallen label, or the ‘‘Half Cut”. What half cut does is at the back of the label, the back is cut in half, allowing you to peel the label easily. This saves you the hassle of wrinkling your labels before you even stick them on.

With up to 35mm per second of printing, it can print out paper as fast as you can remove them. With the ‘‘Pull-and-print” feature, you can make it stop for you to pick a label, and continue as soon as you remove the label, allowing your workflow to proceed without staggers.

At the back of the device, there are two heavy-duty magnets that allows you to affix it securely onto metal platforms. Loading cartridges into the label maker is also an easy job, as it is front-loaded. When it is secured, you can plug in a different sized cartridge if you require to print a wider label.

Overall, a great label maker that saves you cost with auto-tape rewind, while the screen allows you to preview the printout, which then saves you time. Providing multiple types of printing for different uses, ranging from face plates, to wraps and to barcodes, this device helps you label everything with ease.

CHIP CONCLUDE: A customisable label maker that can print fast and produces quality labels, while reducing wastage with efficient prints.
