Our reseller partners asked us to develop a ruggedized, feature-rich barcode printer with the affordability and ease-of-use that are the hallmarks of Wasp
Plano, TX (Vocus) July 22, 2008
Wasp Barcode Technologies today introduced two faster, more rugged barcode printers created specifically for high-volume and industrial environments. Loaded with features, the Wasp WPL610 and Wasp WPL608 industrial barcode printers offer the best performance on the market, but with a lower price point than competitive models.
These industrial-grade printers are ideal for customers that need to print a large volume of labels. With ruggedized die-cast construction, they can withstand the harsher conditions of a warehouse or other industrial environment.
The WPL610 sets a new standard for performance and affordability, including extensive standard features:
- advanced print speeds reaching 12 inches per second
- support for up to 8-inch outside diameter (OD) label rolls
- peel and present functionality
- easy installation, thanks to flexible connectivity options including internal Ethernet, USB 2.0, parallel and RS232
- 32MB SDRAM and 8MB Flash memory to support the most demanding applications
- list price of $1,195
The WPL608 shares the same industrial casing and easy installation, but its features are scaled down for slightly less-demanding environments. Print speeds reach 8 inches per second. In addition, the unit includes 8MB SDRAM and 4MB of Flash memory. Peel and print functionality is optional. The WPL608 lists at $849.
"Our reseller partners asked us to develop a ruggedized, feature-rich barcode printer with the affordability and ease-of-use that are the hallmarks of Wasp," said Tom O'Shea, general manager for Wasp. "With the addition of the WPL610 and WPL608, our partners now can select from a complete range of Wasp barcode printers to meet their customers' volume and quality requirements, from the desktop to the busiest warehouse."
The new industrial-grade printers offer a high-volume, rugged alternative to the WPL305 desktop barcode printer, a workhorse that serves a broad audience needing a light to medium-duty barcode printer. Completing the Wasp barcode printer line is the Wasp WPL205 desktop barcode printer, a value-oriented solution for customers only needing direct thermal printing.
