How to Measure Your Industrial Printer’s Durability

Posted August 20, 2020

Today’s operations face unprecedented demands for faster order fulfillment and greater order accuracy. To meet customer demands without breaking your budget, Barcodes, Inc. recommends reevaluating your printing system since it lies at the core of successful order fulfillment.

See how Zebra’s rugged industrial printers meet these demands in our video:

Linking rugged consumables and intuitive software, your industrial printer holds the potential to streamline operations, which is why it should display:

  • Physical durability – Does your printer remain functional in a variety of different environments such as low temperatures, humidity, dust-prone, and high-altitude locations?
  • Intelligent adaptability – Just like any other piece of technology, your printer’s OS must be updated. Are updates still feasible, and will they be disruptive?
  • User flexibility – Before entering a brand-new peak season, can your printer adapt to new unexperienced employees without increasing training times?
  • Trustworthy security – Past studies indicated that over half of businesses’ data breaches occurred through networked printers. Is your printer protected against unauthorized access?

Developed by the leaders in rugged adaptability, Zebra’s industrial printers, like the ZT230 and ZT411, equip workforces with reliable durability that extends beyond printing processes.
