Business technology solutions provider Brother UK has upgraded two of its most popular label printing lines to boost connectivity, security and energy efficiency to help resellers meet increasing demand from customers in sectors such as hospitality, warehousing and logistics, and ecommerce.
The TD-2000 and the QL ranges have been refreshed with new computer processing units (CPUs) that will allow Brother to manufacture devices on a greater scale, increasing availability of stock to support channel partners, while introducing a host of new benefits for customers.
Four new models have been added to the desktop TD-2000 range. The TD-2125N, TD-2135N, TD-2125NBW and TD-2135NWB will provide new built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for enhanced connectivity.
The TD-2000 upgrades will make it even easier for businesses to implement the digital labelling systems they need to meet Natasha’s Law, creating long-lasting, high-resolution labels that are printed accurately at speed. It will also enable logistics and healthcare customers by enhancing connectivity between labelling devices and third party hardware and software. Their compact size also means they can be added to portable workstations in healthcare settings.
The QL range are the best-sellers in the office label printing range*, and the new QL models will feature improved 5.2 Bluetooth and WPA3-supported Wi-Fi capabilities, boosting the range’s security and connectivity capabilities. The updated devices are also more energy-efficient, with an auto-sleep mode introduced as a default setting for businesses striving to cut their energy use.
These models are designed for address labelling in offices and small businesses trading online. They’re also used for pricing and barcode labelling in retail, name cards for visitor management, and temporary signage for facility managers. The new range consists of four two-inch and two four-inch devices that can print up to 1m in length.
Aaron Hopkinson, product manager at Brother UK, said: “Businesses across the hospitality, retail, healthcare and logistics sector are increasingly turning to labelling technology to help them meet new challenges and opportunities. The refresh of two of our most popular professional labelling ranges ensures that we have the availability of stock, and the competitive product specifications, to help partners meet growing market demand.
“At Brother we use our long history in the market to provide reliable, quality devices that put resellers in the best position to support their customers, from hospitality to logistics. These updates ultimately enable us to deliver every label with precision, and to give our customers the freedom to concentrate on other important tasks – safe in the knowledge that labelling is taken care of.”
