Toshiba: Thermal Barcode Printer

BFV-4 compact printers couple wireless capability with expanded ribbon capacity.

Toshiba America Business Solutions introduces its desktop BFV-4 thermal barcode printer seriesfor on-demand labels in any transportation/logistics, healthcare, and retail environment.

The printers’ compact and top-loading clamshell design—weighing in at less than 5 1/2 lb—facilitates sharing between departments dedicated to a single station or any place where space is limited. Available in both thermal transfer (BFV-4T) and direct thermal (BFV-4D) formats, both printers come standard with USB and Ethernet connectivity with optional wireless 802.11 b/g and Bluetooth allowing for label printing from other locations without cables or wiring.Toshiba’s wireless configurations will be available beginning in Q1 2016.

The BFV-4T printer is capable of using a high-capacity, 300-m ribbon for optimal efficiency. The BFV-4T is also backward compatible with its predecessor, Toshiba’s B-EV4 printer, which holds smaller 100-m ribbons.

With a maximum speed of 6 in./sec, the B-FV4 series deliver up to 57 4x6-in. labels/min to accommodate even the busiest of environments. Toshiba’s latest thermal barcode printers additionally feature emulations such as ZPL®, EPL®, DPL®, and IPL® for seamless and efficient integration in any organization’s existing operation. Users may easily switch emulations via Toshiba’s setting tool utility.
