Brother UK has released four new models to its TJ series of industrial label printers, introducing higher performance machines to meet the most demanding labelling requirements in warehousing, manufacturing and logistics.

The new models offer print speeds of up to 14 inches per second (ips), compared to up to 10 ips provided by the four existing models launched in 2020. The new releases also feature increased ribbon capacity for high-volume users of up to 600 meters, up from 450 meters provided by the current range, and internal rewinders to collect printed labels on one spool to be applied later.

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth also add to a range of existing connectivity options, with an advanced touchscreen enhancing machine usability and diagnostics.

The devices can operate in both direct thermal and thermal transfer mode, which enables businesses to create a wide range of print-out types, from shipping labels to Hazchem warning signs. By using the correct ribbon and label combination, users can print durable labels that can withstand extremes in moisture, chemical resistance, heat and UV exposure.

Each device comes with an operating expense purchasing option for reseller partners to use under Brother’s Managed Label Service, which enables customers to buy new products without the need for an upfront payment, while combining OpEx spend with complementary hardware and software. The new machines will also be supported by the recent launch of Brother’s ONSITE next day repairs service, which provides a call out repairs service to resolve any maintenance issues in a 24-hour period.
