BIXOLON Adds SLP-TX400R RFID Printer to Desktop Label Printer Lineup

SLP-TX400R Delivers Accurate RFID Encoded Labels With Best-in-Class Print Speed.

BIXOLON Co., Ltd. a leading global mobile, label and POS printer manufacturer, today announced the SLP-TX400R 4-inch desktop label printer with RFID technology. Supporting both direct thermal and thermal transfer printing at top printing speeds, the compact new model simultaneously prints and embeds UHF RFID code into a wide range of label types and sizes - from merchandise hang tags, inventory palette and case labels to wristbands and more ─ making it an ideal choice for retail, hospitality, warehousing, logistics and other applications that require rapid, secure and accurate identification of assets.

Working with the application, the SLP-TX400R seamlessly prints traditional text, graphics and 1D/2D barcodes while simultaneously embedding EPC code (serial number, stock number, production date and other unique ID information) onto the label.

“With omnichannel retailing moving at warp speed, there’s a critical need for stores to gain efficiency, visibility and accurate inventory tracking to stay competitive,” cited John Kim, BIXOLON director of marketing. “A great buying experience can be ruined by inventory or delivery errors. The SLP-TX400R ensures the fastest desktop label printing with the right RFID data encoded in every tag.”
