LabelStation Industrial with fitted rewinder

Our LabelStation Industrial Label Printer has the option for a unique factory-fitted, built-in label roll rewinder.

Below are a couple examples of why you would need an internal rewinder on this printer.

Example 1: PAT Labels

You’re an electrician who does PAT testing. You currently write on each label by hand at the time of testing. With the growth of your business and more tests to do you’re starting to get lazy and messy with the details on each label to keep up with demand. Even writing them at home in the evenings isn’t solving a problem.
You buy a LabelStation Industrial 300 with a factory-fitted internal rewinder. You design the label on your computer which takes just a few minutes using the bundled software. You can print your company name, phone number, initials, date and even an automatic sequential APP ID number (with optional barcode). It takes just a few minutes to set up and then you just leave it to print. It automatically rewinds the printed labels onto an empty core. When it’s done printing you’re left with a roll of labels printed with all the required details. It leaves a professional impression that you want your customers to see and leaving contact details for repeat business.

Brady BMP41 Overview

This is the Brady BMP41 hand-held label printer, Brady’s latest mobile printer.
Launched late 2013, this printer came flying into the stream bursting with features and functionality. With it’s price tag between the BMP21 and BMP51 and it’s functionality between the BMP51 and BMP71, this printer is boasting to be the best.
Brady set the benchmark when it comes to usability. I found it very easy to print 5 sequential barcodes by pressing only 12 buttons, from power-on to print in under 15 seconds!
The clear display is backlit and has a higher DPI than equivalent Dymo and Brother models. The backlight is active from the first time you switch the printer on which is helpful as it saves hunting around for the buttons if you’re already in a low-light environment. If you’re not in complete darkness and would like to save some battery power, you can always switch it off.
The rubber keyboard clicks so you know you’ve successfully pressed a button (if you’ve ever used a rubber keyboard that doesn’t click, you’ll know that sometimes you may have pressed the button but not hard enough for it to be registered), has the QWERTY layout making it very easy to use and it’s very responsive. It’s likely you’re reading this on a computer and you’d know it’s easier to type on a QWERTY keyboard than an ABC keyboard. An ABC keyboard sounds easy because all the letters are in order but believe me, if you’re in a hurry it’s rather annoying unless you’re used to it.
