Sydney, Australia – 08 August 2016 – Industrial-grade labelling just got much quicker with the launch of Brother’s fastest and latest spec desktop labeller, which produces labels three times faster than previous models.

Specialist in advanced industrial labelling solutions, Brother’s new PT-D800W has a print speed of 60mm per second, and also boasts the largest size tape in the P-touch range – at 36mm wide, plus near edge-to-edge printing, thanks to its 32mm print width.

The new PT-D800W is a robust, standalone machine with battery option, so it can be used on-the-move, right where it’s needed. It is lightweight, yet durable, with a secure carry handle for immediate portability and an inbuilt storage area for label tapes and included AC adapter.

Its PC-style keyboard with integrated backlit display can be locked in place on the top of the device when being carried, then conveniently placed in front of the machine when in-use.

Michael Morales, Product Manager, L&M and S&S 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 very excited about the functionality and capabilities of the new PT-D800W label printer – it can fast become a trusted workhorse, able to design, store and print industry-standard labels in a busy plant or site office.” With a high resolution graphic backlit LCD display, there are hundreds of industrial symbols pre-programmed for ease of use, a built-in clock for auto-dated labels, a QWERTY keyboard with personal format and next label keys, advanced sequential numbering and a print pause/resume feature.

Users can design a label on their PC, then print using the USB or WiFi connectivity. The PT-D800W can also be used 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.

Morales added: “Durability has always been the essential element for professional labelling in industrial applications - but connectivity is fast becoming a critical feature too. Compatibility with smartphones and tablets is a real game changer – and provides added flexibility, so new label designs can easily be printed on site as and when required.”

On sale from August 1st, 2016, the Brother PT-D800W label printer is priced at $849. For more information visit www.brother.com.au/products/labellers/p-touch-labellers/pt-d800w-detail
