1. Number of prints
If you need to print more than 4000 labels a day, you need a rugged high-volume industrial printer with a metal shell
2. Print label size
General bar code printers can print 4 "X6" labels, which is tangent to the current specifications of freight labels. You can also print labels of different sizes flexibly according to your needs
3. Print the contents of the label
If you only need to print bar code and text, the general bar code printer can be competent. However, if you need to print different bar codes (such as product numbers) or text (such as shipping labels) on each label and do not want to stop printing halfway, you need a printer with a 32-bit processor, which can greatly improve production efficiency.
4. Quality of printed labels
The printing resolution of bar code machine is generally divided into 203dpi, 300dpi and 600dpi; The higher the DPI value, the better the printing effect. If you want to print high-quality images on the label, you can consider using a 300dpi print head.
5. Printing speed
Different types of printers have different printing speeds, depending on the speed requirements of users. Generally, the printing speed of bar code printer is 2 ″ - 6 ″ / sec per second, while the printing speed of high-speed printer can reach more than 10 ″ / sec. If you need to print a large number of labels in a short time, you should choose a high-speed bar code printer.
