Beaverton, OR (PressExposure) June 05, 2009 -- The DuraLabel 2000, a new handheld label printer designed to create safety labels anywhere on the job or in the field, prints on one-half inch, one inch, and two inch label supply. It becomes the latest in a growing line of industrial DuraLabel brand printers offered by Graphic Products, Inc.
Pre-installed with 122 safety symbols based on the latest ANSI standards, the DuraLabel 2000 is designed to fulfill countless safety labeling tasks. A 3.25" viewable LCD screen, an intuitive text and image auto-size setting, and a SoftKey menu system combine to provide simple navigation and quick label design. Prepared for portability, the DuraLabel 2000 weighs only 2.85 lbs. yet boasts a rugged, shock-resistant constructional design.
"One of the most important features of the DuraLabel 2000 is the auto-size setting for text and images," said Jeff Dahl, manufacturing operations manager at Graphic Products. "Taking into account the number of lines on the label, the printer automatically sizes text and images to entirely fill the space on the label. This eliminates the need to manually input the size for each line on a label, allowing the customer to by-pass an exhaustive and unnecessary 'guess-and-check' sizing process often required while designing labels using other handheld printers."
The DuraLabel 2000 can handle a wide variety of industrial label printing applications like safety information, wayfinding, machinery and equipment labeling, identification marking, 5S labeling, pipe markers, instrument identification, rack labeling, electrical panels, valve tags, and more.
DuraLabel 2000 features include:
● Rechargeable battery with a low self-discharge for longer shelf life ● Printhead requires zero cool-down time; does not overheat ● Superior vertical white space management for increased readability ● Preview screen with directional scrolling to show label design to actual size ● Save screen to save label designs for future print jobs ● Status bar to display quick, screen-to-screen view of current label design settings
"For safety managers, engineers, electricians--anyone involved in facility management and safety--it is important to have an intuitive, up-to-date, and cost-effective label printer that meets label-making demands as efficiently as possible," said Dahl. "The DuraLabel 2000 is that printer."
Supply for the DuraLabel 2000 is currently available in eight colors. Ribbons are available in six different colors. DuraLabel 2000 supply and ribbons are designed to withstand harsh industrial environments, so labels will be long lasting.
Specialty supplies like reflective, repositionable, and self-laminating wire wraps are also available.
The DuraLabel 2000 comes with a rechargeable battery, a battery charger, and cleaning products for the printer and print head. Optional accessories include a hard carrying case and a soft carrying case.
