Handheld label printer is cost-effective

Graphic Products launches new DuraLabel 2000 PLUS handheld label printer.


Portland, Ore.—Safety labeling solutions provider Graphic Products Inc. has released its newest thermal transfer labeler, the DuraLabel 2000 PLUS Handheld Label Printer.

“For anyone involved in facility management and safety, it is important to have an intuitive, portable and cost-effective label printer that meets label-making demands efficiently,” said Jeff Dahl, manufacturing operations manager at Graphic Products.

Printing labels on 1/2-inch, 1-inch, and 2-inch vinyl supply and operating on a rechargeable battery, the DuraLabel 2000 PLUS offers many features that are cited to be unique for a handheld labeler. Three main features stand out: a large LCD screen, zero printer cool-down time required, and a fast print speed.

The printer’s viewable LCD screen (2.62 inch x 1.31 inch)—significantly large for its category—shows five lines of a label design at a given time and provides an easy-to-read, high resolution display (256 x 128 pixels).

The DuraLabel 2000 PLUS features two alternating heat elements, which means zero printer cool-down time is required. In short, the printer will not overheat and then shut down at inconvenient times during the labeling process—saving customers’ time and generating more printed labels.

Printing at 0.40-inches per second, the DuraLabel 2000 PLUS prints labels approximately 54 percent faster than the leading competitor’s handheld labeler, with printed labels maintaining industrial-quality properties.

“Another important feature is the auto-size setting for text and images,” said Dahl. “Taking into account the number of lines on the label, the printer automatically sizes text and images to entirely fill the space on the label—eliminating the need to manually input the sizes in an exhaustive guess-and-check process often required when using other handheld labelers.”

The portable, 2.7-pound DuraLabel 2000 PLUS is for industrial labeling applications including electrical panel labeling, 5S labeling, pipe marking, equipment identification, rack labeling, safety information labeling, barcode labeling, wire and cable wrapping, and valve tagging.
