honeywell consumables your guide to printers and supplies

Genuine consumables from Honeywell include labels, ribbons, RFID tags, and more for a wide variety of environments and labeling applications.

Depending on your needs, certain consumables and media may be a better choice than others. Here are some questions to consider for consumables, examples of different print media, and the latest Honeywell barcode label printers.

Genuine Consumables from Honeywell

Honeywell’s printer supplies are optimized for use with Honeywell printers, providing thermal printing solutions that simplify operations and lower total cost of ownership.

Whatever your print needs, ranging from barcode labels, media tags, and receipt paper to thermal media, RFID labels, and patient wristbands – using genuine Honeywell consumables and printer supplies allows for the very best performance.

Honeywell Barcode Label Printers

Honeywell’s latest industrial printers all improve operational productivity with minimal downtime. They print more labels at faster speeds, without compromising label quality or accuracy.

Many of the following printers can accomplish similar results and are highly recommended. Instead, we will point out the differences between Honeywell’s PM, PD, PX, and RP series.

For a personalized recommendation, don’t hesitate to contact us for assistance.

PXie Series Printers Should be Replaced with PX45 or PX65

Honeywell announced in May 2022 that it will be discontinuing the PX4ie and PX6ie series of printers.

Anyone planning to upgrade this year should now consider the new PX45 and PX65 printers instead, expected to be available in August 2022.

These are very similar in spec to the PXie series printers, but are even more rugged and future proof. Improvements in the PX45 and PX65 include:

  • Faster processing speed: CPU, FPGA and Motor controller upgrade
  • Larger memory size: 256MB/512MB RAM/Flash upgrade
  • RFID enhancement: new IM11 module included
  • Connectivity enhancement: Ethernet 10/100/1000, high speed USB included
  • All accessories compatible with PXie series printers

Both the PX45 and PX65 are durable, all-metal industrial printers, printing up to 12 inches per second from the first label to the last. Both printers boast at a resolution of 203 or 300 dpi, and the PX45 also has a resolution of 406 dpi. This is perfect for compliance labeling applications that need immediate results from dynamic datasets. The magnetic QuickMount™ printhead makes it easy and quick to change printheads.

Honeywell labels and other media are designed and tested with the PX45 and PX65 printers to make sure they work best with genuine Honeywell media.

PM45 and PD45 Printers

Both the PM45 and PD45 barcode label printers from Honeywell are worth a look for industrial and retail environments (especially the PD45s printer).

RP2e and RP4e Printers

By printing labels on demand, right where they’ll be used, this portable printer boosts efficiency and cuts down on mistakes. When compared to competing mobile printers, the RP4e’s advantages are clear: it has nearly twice the print speed media capacity, an improvement of one point in ANSI print quality, and superior battery power longevity thanks to our new Hi-drain battery.

This means that your employees will be able to get more done in less time without having to waste any of it waiting for media to load or changing batteries.

The RPe Series printer produces labels and receipts from 25.4 mm (1 in) to 104.1 mm (4.1 in) and supports a broad range of media, including the thick material required for hang tags and specialized labeling.

In addition, whether you’re working with a single media format or a combination of formats, the application’s quick and simple loading design means fewer interruptions and more productivity.

If you’re looking for long-range and lightning-fast data connectivity on your WL AN, look no farther than the RPe Series with its cutting-edge 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi capabilities. When employees need to print from locations outside of the WL AN’s range or use the printer with a Bluetooth mobile device, the printer’s built-in Bluetooth® 4.0 LE radio comes in handy at no extra cost. In addition, the printer supports NFC so that status and settings may be checked even when there is no access to the internet.

Both the RP2e and the RP4e printers from Honeywell are available now.

PX940 Printer

The powerhouse that is the PX940 still remains one of the best selling industrial label printers. See why the PX940 printer is chosen time and time again.

Genuine Zebra Labels: Understanding Their Impact on Barcode Printers and Overall Barcode Quality

Posted June 16, 2022
genuine zebra labels

Zebra’s full line of certified labels ensures that your printer provides the quality, reliability, and performance you expect.

Printing supplies can impact everything from printhead lifespan to operational efficiency. That’s why Zebra designs, produces, and rigorously pre-tests our own line of thermal printing supplies to ensure consistent, optimized performance of your Zebra printer. Zebra labels are also known as Certified Zebra Supplies.

Genuine Zebra Labels: Available in Many Different Materials

Zebra paper labels are designed for shipping labels and short-term asset tags.

Zebra polypropylene labels handle demanding internal environments.

Zebra polyester labels provide superior print quality with an extremely rugged material to survive any internal or external environment.

Zebra labels also come in hard-to-find label sizes and can be created custom to your specific requirements. Which Zebra label is right for your printer?

Direct Thermal Printer Labels

Direct thermal printers utilize a chemically treated label/stock that turns black when the thermal printhead applies heat to the surface of the material. These printers don’t require any ribbon, ink, or toner to print, making them a very cost-effective solution. Direct thermal printing can fade over time and should avoid excessive heat or exposure to sunlight for best results. 

Thermal Transfer Printer Labels

Thermal transfer printers are the perfect solution for long term labeling as they utilize a ribbon for printing. As the printhead applies heat to the ribbon, it melts onto the label surface which can be a variety of materials including polyester and polypropylene. With a longer lifespan and options for rugged label materials, thermal printers are ideal for product labeling, inventory and asset tracking, and outdoor applications.

Benefits of Zebra Print Labels

Zebra and Barcodes offer label solutions which fit a wide variety of operational printing needs. Genuine Zebra labels enhance operations and reduce costs with:

  • Superior print quality
  • Extremely rugged material that can survive in any internal or external environment
  • Various sizes, materials and adhesive types
