Epson said it has launched the Labelworks LW-Z900/LW-PX900, its first hand-held label printer in December in Europe and a few months earlier in the US.

“This label printer, designed based on customer needs, sports numerous features that save time, reduce running costs, and increase business efficiency,” an Epson press release said.

According to Epson, the new LW-Z900/LW-PX900 and new types of tape were designed to meet the needs of telecom, electrical, and wiring professionals while maintaining the flexibility needed.

A new addition to the tape lineup are heat-shrink tubes, which are ideal for cable labels because of their insulative properties and because they shrink to fit cables when exposed to a blast of hot air.

“The LW-Z900/LW-PX900 supports tape widths ranging from 4 mm to 36 mm, while heat-shrink tubes with large diameters are also available,” the company added.

In addition, Epson introduced self-laminating cable wrap tape, which has a white print-on area and a transparent tab that wraps over and around the label, as well as die-cut labels that are pre-cut into certain shapes.

“The LW-Z900/LW-PX900 can be used to create a wide range of labels in addition to cable and wiring identification labels,” Epson informed.

Standard label printers leave a lead margin on the tape, starting from where the previous label was cut and extending to the location of the printhead.

“The LW-Z900/LW-PX900 is equipped with a newly developed auto tape-rewind feature that reduces the lead margin from 10 mm to 4 mm on standard industrial labels,” it stated.

Epson also sought to give the label printer industry-leading usability to maximise the efficiency with which users can create labels and has added a liquid crystal display screen, which is easier to understand.

Epson further added that the LW-Z900/LW-PX900 is equipped with a variety of features to help users quickly and easily print in the field.

It has introduced Drop-Stop, which holds labels after they are cut so that they do not fall out of the printer.

Moreover, a feature called Pick & Print automatically pauses a job after printing and cutting the first label in a series and resumes printing or cutting when the label is removed. (AR)
