Sato, the barcode printing, labelling, and EPC/RFID solutions provider, has announced the introduction of its new TG3 Series printers. Designed and built especially for retail industry applications, the TG3 is ideal for tagging and labelling apparel, accessories, house hold goods, furnishings and much more.
The TG3 Series thermal and direct thermal printers enable retailers to create brand identity awareness by producing high quality, attractive tags that may include brand name, brand logo, brand tagline, product ID, company URL, etc. Users can also create tags or labels to display price, price markdowns, inventory clearance items, product Stock Keeping Unit information, Price Look Up information, product origin, and size/style/gender ID.
The TG3 Series features an automated print-cut-stack function for hassle-free printing, separation of tags for batch printing (by cutting the first tag longer or using the ink ribbon mechanism to place an ink mark on the side of each batch separator tag), energy-saving LCD, precision cutting of tags/labels, and the ability to perform stand-alone printing using the optional keypad.
High speed printing up to 25.4cm per second, support for tags up to 0.33mm thick, a large user-friendly LCD, and a variety of plug-in interface cards including USB, LAN, WLAN, Parallel, and RS-23C2 (Serial) are important additional features of the TG3 Series.
"Once again Sato's focus on innovation creates an affordable and feature rich solution to facilitate in-house markdowns and in-store promotions," said Brian Lang, Managing Director for Sato International Europe. "Studies have shown that nearly 40% of retailers now facilitate their markdown needs manually with hand written markings and some dedicated sales floor staff to this task. Manual markings are not a visually pleasing procedure. They diminish the stores branding and increase the potential for employee mistakes and loss in profitability. Sato's new TG3 Series will help retailers enhance the customer experience and allow for accurate inventory management, sales accuracy, and improved employee productivity."
