Intermec PF8 printers deliver...

Intermec has introduced the PF8 series of compact printers designed for space-restricted applications where quick and easy printer set-up, easy-loading capability and fast, accurate performance are paramount.

The new line of printers is available in thermal transfer (PF8t) or direct thermal (PF8d) versions with high-throughput - up to four inches per second - for self-adhesive labels, non-adhesive tags or continuous paper strip applications.

The PF8 printer series features Connect to Print, an all-inclusive package of software, drivers and cables for printer set-up, and a unique design for one-step, drop-in supply loading and tool-free replacement of print heads. The PF8t has the largest ribbon capacity in its class, meaning less time spent replacing ribbons.  Both printers benefit from a 32-bit RISC processor enabling the printers to quickly handle graphic-intensive label formats.

"This product is closely aligned with key end user requirements" cites Kevin Permenter, AIDC Analyst at Venture Development Corporation.  "Footprint reduction, ease of use and loading, packaged solutions, and out-of-box experience are some of the most desirable characteristics for end users of this class of bar code printers."

PF8 printers come complete with LabelShop START, Intermec's label design software, and InterDriver Windows Driver, enabling users to easily print bar code labels from Windows applications, including Microsoft Office and other prevalent programs.  In addition, Intermec Media now offers up to fifteen take-from-stock label types pre-qualified for use on the PF8 printers.

Both the PF8d and the PF8t versions support a wide variety of 1D and 2D symbologies, including DataMatrix and QR codes. The PF8t is available with either 203 or 300 dots-per-inch resolution print heads.

The PF8t is available now worldwide with the PF8d following in November 2007.
