Datamax-O’Neil, part of Dover Corporation’s Product Identification Platform and global provider of label and receipt printing solutions, introduces a new generation of its MP Compact printer family, now designated the MP Compact4 Mark II and the MP Compact4 Mobile Mark II. The new models, which will be available in April, incorporate the following features:

* IntelliSEAQ™ printhead which provides analytics and reporting capabilities
* Expanded emulation capabilities

“The MP Compact4 Mark II printers have an incredibly small footprint which allows them to be used in applications where space is limited,” said Umesh Cooduvalli, senior product manager for Datamax-O’Neil. “Their compact size takes up less than half the space of a traditional desktop label printer but with the same duty cycle and strength.”

The rugged printers are constructed on a solid cast metal frame and protected with metal die cast covers. The printer is ideal at the front desk of a hospital or in the box office of a movie theatre.

The Compact4 Mobile Mark II is designed for installation on forklift trucks and mobile stations. It can operate from a connection to a forklift’s battery. Its vibration-proof design makes it the perfect choice for warehousing logistics.

The MP Compact series of printers have achieved considerable success in Europe. “We expect these printers to achieve similar success in other regions of the world,” Cooduvalli explained. “The new features we’ve incorporated into the latest Mark II generation printers make them an even more competitive offering.”

IDG Tools AB’s product range is made up almost solely of their own well-known trademark, IDG Tools® (Industrial Development Group). The company has an extensive product range, most of which can be found on exhibition buses.

Datalogic Mobile’s Kyman™ in the warehouse

IDG Tools uses the mobile computer Kyman™ from Datalogic Mobile in their warehouse and has done so for about a year. The warehouse consists of 4000-4500 items and 6500 places for pallets. Kyman™ is used to make the picking procedure more effective and simpler. Previously, they used a mobile computer of another brand, which they had to replace since it did not meet their needs. The reason they chose Kyman™ was due to a recommendation by Sundit – the supplier of their ERP system. IDG Tools gave a list of requirements to Sundit; their main requirements being flexibility, color screen and reliable on-line communication. Sundit then turned to Datalogic Mobile Partner, for the right product. Datalogic Mobile’s Kyman™ filled these needs. In addition, it is ergonomic, suits the hand, has a sharp screen and is very fast. For all of these reasons, IDG has been very satisfied with their choice.
