Sato, the barcode printing, labelling and EPC/RFID solutions provider, has launched a new series of cost-effective printers, the GZ series. Easy-to-control and featuring advanced technology to print images at high speed, it is expected to set a new standard in the transport and logistics industry, enabling users to improve traceability, increase efficiencies, reduce operating costs and achieve a competitive edge.
The GZ series of printers offers high speed data transmission, high processing speed and large amounts of on-board memory to quickly and easily manage any label printing requirement, while being cost effective to run. Designed to perform in the most demanding environments of the logistics industry, Sato's easy-to-use printers have wide font and graphics capabilities to provide clear, accurate text printing and consistently precise and high quality one or two dimensional barcode images.
The GZ series prints high resolution at 203 and 305 dpi and has a high speed of 254 and 203 mm per second. It features a RISC processor which provides exceptional performance in label production even when printing directly from standard Windows. The printer is available in three models: a combo model (USB, RS232, IEEE1284), a LAN model and wireless LAN model.
Thanks to its emulation language, the new GZ printers can be easily integrated into existing business processes, allowing rapid identification, precise sorting and efficient tracking and reporting of post, parcel and other items at each stage of the shipping and delivery process.
Incorporated with a rigid steel chassis that's enclosed in a durable steel cabinet, the sturdy and robust series of printers has a long life span, with upgrading and expansion options also available.
"At Sato we work closely with our customers and understand printing requirements in transport and logistics," says Ikuo Dobashi, Chairman of Sato Corporation and Sato International Europe. "We have developed the GZ series printer in response to customer demand for a printer that is easier to use and control, faster, has greater availability of communication interfaces, emulation language and more memory. I'm delighted we can now offer this printer, which is based on our popular CL series industrial printer, to help our customers to save time, improve productivity, and increase visibility."
The GZ series printers are suitable for a range of shipping and receiving applications, where barcodes are applied at the source to ensure end-to-end traceability, as well as cross docking.
The extensive suite of Sato barcode printers has a reputation for robustness and reliable performance in the transport and logistics industry and ranges from mobile and truck-mounted systems to 24/7 wide-width and print-&-apply machines.
