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

Problem
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.
Solution
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.

Brother Industrial Handheld Label Printer Comparison

Old Models

Replacement Models

The Brother P-Touch 7100 handheld label printer was the cheapest P-Touch specifically targeted at electricians. It will print on TZ tape sizes between 3.5 and 12mm. It has an ABC keyboard, large 1-line display, 9 font styles. It was supplied with a hard carry case and mains adaptor but can run from 6 AAA batteries. This printer has since been replaced by the PT-E100. The E100 prints faster, has specific patch panel and cable marking functions, and can even do serialisation.

Brother P-Touch Industrial Desktop Label Printers Comparison

These products are discontinued. For our full range of current printers please click here.

The following printers can be connected to a computer via USB which will allow for extra fonts and font styles installed on the computer to be used. All printer-installed fonts are listed in the table below.

Print speeds: Fast = 10mm per second. Very Fast = 20mm per second. Super Fast = 80mm per second on HG tape and 20mm per second on TZ tape.

The Brother P-Touch 2730 label printer is at the low-end of the high-end scale. Its fast 7-line printing will give you 8 different fonts that you can preview on a large, backlit, 3-line display and will also produce 9 different barcodes types. It will print on TZ tapes up to 24mm with an automatic electric cutter. This comes supplied with a mains adaptor and a USB cable.

The Brother 3600 label printer is the same as the 2730 but will print on TZ tape up to 36mm (the model name is a coincidence though). It is one of four of the fastest P-Touch printers (known here as the “Very Fast” speed of 20mm per second). It has two extra fonts and a few more font styles. The display is not backlit on this unit.

The Brother 9600 label printer is again similar to the 2730 but is also similar to the 3600. It will print on TZ tapes between 6 and 36mm. Again it is in the fastest printing range and can print up to 16 lines of text. You have 10 fonts to choose from, 18 font styles and 9 barcode types. It features a QWERTY keyboard with hard keys (hard like a computer keyboard, not rubber like the other P-Touch printers) and the large 3-line display is backlit. The automatic cutter can also part-cut allowing a long string of labels to be printed without piling up in a big mess.

The Brother 9700 and 9800 label printer are the same but the 9800 has an RJ45 Ethernet connection for connection to multiple computers on a network (perfect for offices, factory or warehouse networks). These printers will print on both TZ tapes (in the “Very Fast” speed) and the HG tapes (in the “Super Fast” speed). The tapes can be between 3.5 and 36mm. It has an automatic cutter that will cut fully or part-cut. You can print up to 16 lines before it becomes unreadable. These can also be connected by serial (RS232).

CD Trouble
Question Answer Explanation
Back to the table of contents
I have an Industrial Signs CD but my computer’s Explorer window produces no preview images, making it difficult to find the right image file.  How can I get round this? Some picture file types like PCX do not preview in Windows.

On the Industrial Signs CD you will find a picture catalogue in the form of a PDF (Adobe Acrobat) file.  This may be used to find the image you require, and its file name.

My LabelDirect software is behaving like a trial version, but it is not.  It requests the CD Key each time it is launched.  Why? Re-install LabelDirect, taking care to type in the CD Key and Serial Number correctly. Typing the Serial Number or Key incorrectly during installation causes LabelDirect to go into Trial Version mode.
