Printronix Enhances Smart Forms Capability with Certification and Device Drivers

Posted September 15, 2010

Printronix has released several new SAP Smart Form device drivers, allowing SAP users to print to Printronix line matrix and thermal bar code printers easily. In addition, Printronix has attained the Silver level in the SAP® Printer Vendor Program. This accreditation certifies Printronix as a suppler of seamless and easy-to-use office solutions.

Maintaining continuous operations is a mission-critical part of production, and replacing print systems shouldn’t be a burden to the IT organization. The Printronix line matrix and thermal bar code printers combined with SAP Smart Forms, offer users a cost-effective, quick and sensible way to upgrade printers and have applications working properly in a very short time. The latest Smart Forms capability combined with the new Printronix drivers eliminates the need for additional programming during the replacement process.

The most common business output from an SAP system are forms and labels designed using Smart Forms, a graphic-based SAP tool for creating device-independent forms. The printer driver’s job is to translate the output commands generated by Smart Forms into commands that can be natively understood by the printer. Printronix bar code printer drivers are designed to carry out this translation and stream the output directly to the printer without requiring additional middleware applications. The result is a solid and robust printing system that requires little to no customization or ongoing maintenance.

The new drivers are available for download now on the Printronix website, by calling 1-800-665-6210 or by sending an e-mail to

Printronix P700 Delivers the Latest Innovation in Its Flagship Line Matrix Printer Portfolio

Posted June 14, 2010

Printronix P7000Printronix’s P7000 Series Is the Technology of Choice for Companies Requiring Reliable, Low Cost of Ownership, Flexible Printers for Mission-critical Applications

Printronix, a leading industrial printing solutions manufacturer, today announced the latest introduction in its flagship line matrix product series, the P7000 cartridge line matrix printer. The new P7000 cartridge printer gives users the added advantage of a cartridge that enables easy replacement while delivering ease of change, clean-hands installation, more uniform print quality and longer ribbon life. Ideally suited for supply-chain and back-office printing applications, the Printronix P7000 series is the preferred choice of companies around the globe, offering more uptime and mission-critical dependability, while providing lower service and operating costs.

“Reliability and value are still top buying priorities in Line impact printer environments. Businesses want integrated print management, precise print quality and operating cost controls in high-volume printing for mission critical applications,” said Peter Grant, managing vice president at Gartner.

Printronix line matrix printers work predictably and consistently in challenging physical environments, performing reliably under temperature and humidity extremes and often using low quality paper or paper with a high recycled content. In contrast to laser printers, which require a pristine operating environment and high quality paper, the P7000 also works in current and legacy host environments to efficiently and reliably support critical business processes and is ideally suited for printing multi-part forms. In addition, the cost of supplies for a laser printer is six times the cost of supplies for a line matrix printer, delivering a significant total cost of ownership advantage for line matrix users.

Printronix T5000r Thermal Barcode Printer Earns ENERGY STAR Rating

Posted April 9, 2010

Printronix T5000rPrintronix is pleased to announce that we are the first to earn the ENERGY STAR on our T5000r thermal bar code and SL5000r RFID printers. The T5000r and SL5000r are the only thermal printers in their class to meet the latest 2009 ENERGY STAR® Program Requirements for Imaging Equipment*. These printers will help companies to reach their corporate sustainability initiatives by reducing energy consumption and utility bills.

Plug-and-Play Printers for Every Environment

We now provide T5000r and SL5000r users with the most thermal printer emulations as a standard feature for quick and easy replacement of multiple printer brands. You may need to make rapid printer upgrades or streamline operations following mergers and acquisitions. We’ve added Monarch and IER emulations, giving the T5000r and SL5000r printers support for a total of seven thermal emulations, which includes Zebra, Intermec, TEC, SATO, Datamax, Monarch and IER. This extensive emulation support, combined with micro-stepping technology, means the T5000r and SL5000r ENERGY STAR printers have unparalleled application and output compatibility.

Feature Enhancements Ensure Adaptability to Future Business Applications

The latest features to come standard on every T5000r and SL5000r printer will help you not only to accommodate current applications, but also to plan for the future. Each printer now comes with built-in Ethernet and the highest memory in the industry at 64MB DRAM and 16MB Flash. Enhanced label sensing technology expands the range of media compatible with the printer. In addition, the T5000r thermal bar code printer is field upgradable to RFID to meet the changing demands of business applications. The SL5000r RFID printer includes EPCglobal Class 1 Gen 2 certified hardware. Both the T5000r and SL5000r offer optional functionality for wireless environments when combined with our mobile PrintCart. The lower power consumption enables prolonged use of the printer, resulting in less frequent charging and productivity improvement.
