Label everything and label often

Label everything and label often DC Comics

That is likely Brother’s motto as it has added an industrial strength labeller to its P-Touch Range.

The new PT-D800WBrother P touch PT DW8000Wprints from 3.5mm to 36mm wide labels at 60mm/second. It has a detachable keyboard, Wi-Fi, USB, and and optional battery so it will print from a computer or smartphone. Now there is no excuse not to be excessively orderly and fussy in your life.

Users can design a label on a computer, then print using the USB or Wi-Fi connectivity. It also comes with Brother’s mobile cable label tool, a free app developed specifically to create labels for telecom, datacom, and electrical installations. The app includes an extensive cloud-based hub of up-to-date design templates and electrical symbols.

Michael Morales, product manager at Brother Australia, said, “In today’s fast-moving industrial or manufacturing environments, high-quality, durable labels are a vital part of the landscape. We’re excited about the functionality and capabilities of the new PT-D800W label printer – it is a fast workhorse, able to design, store and print industry-standard labels in a busy plant or site office.”
