Obeeco Desktop Label Printers
Desktop label printers are an essential tool for many businesses, as they provide a quick and cost-effective way to produce high-quality labels for a range of applications. These printers are ideal for creating labels for products, shipping, inventory management, and other uses.
Here at Obeeco, we offer a wide range of labelling machines as part of our Coding and Marking Technologies using direct thermal or thermal transfer technology based on value, performance, features, and ease of use.
There are several factors to consider when selecting a desktop label printer for your business, including the type of label you need to print, the volume of labels you need to produce, and your budget, as well as the features you require from your printer.
Our desktop labelling machines are available in 4-inch, 6-inch, 8-inch & 10-inch print widths with resolutions of up to 600dpi available. They are supplied with a host of options that include cutters, dispensers, and external label unwind stations.
Types of Labels For Your Label Printer
One of the most important factors to consider when selecting a desktop label printer is the type of label you need to produce. There are various types of labels, including thermal transfer labels and direct thermal labels.
Thermal transfer labels require a thermal transfer ribbon to be used during the printing process. These ribbons are coated with ink, which is then transferred onto the label material when heated. Thermal transfer labels are known for their durability and resistance to fading and smudging, making them ideal for use in environments with high temperatures or exposure to chemicals.
Direct thermal labels, on the other hand, do not require a ribbon and instead use heat to activate a chemical coating on the label material, producing an image. Direct thermal labels are typically less expensive than thermal transfer labels, but they are not as durable and can fade over time if exposed to heat, sunlight, or chemicals.
Label Printing Volume
Another important factor to consider when selecting which desktop label printer is right for you is the volume of labels you need to produce. If you only need to print a small number of labels each day, a low-volume printer may be sufficient. However, if you need to produce hundreds or thousands of labels each day, a high-volume printer may be necessary.
Desktop label printers are available at various printing speeds, ranging from a few labels per minute to over 10 inches per second. High-speed printers can produce a large number of labels quickly, but they may also be more expensive than other low-volume printing options.
The cost of a desktop label printer is another important factor to consider. The price of a printer can vary depending on the features and capabilities it offers.
In addition to the cost of the printer itself, you should also consider the cost of supplies such as label material and ink or thermal transfer ribbons as well as the cost of maintaining your printer.
Before selecting a desktop label printer for your business, it’s important to ensure the selected model has the correct features required for your output. These features can help you to optimise your label printing process and make it more efficient.
One important feature to consider is the connectivity options offered by your label printer. Most desktop label printers offer USB connectivity, which allows the printer to be connected directly to a computer. Some printers also offer Wi-Fi connectivity, which can be useful if you need to share the printer with multiple users or if you want to print your labels from a mobile device.
Another important feature is the ability to print in colour. While not all label applications require colour printing, it can be useful for creating eye-catching labels for products or marketing materials.
Other features to consider include the ability to print barcodes or QR codes, the size and type of label that can be printed, and the ease of use of the printer’s software. Some printers also offer additional features such as automatic label peeling or cutting, which can help to speed up the label production process.
