Bixolon Launches New Compact SLP-TX420 Label Printer

Posted March 8, 2017

The SLP-TX420 is engineered to meet the growing use of smart devices in the printing industry, so is compatible with Mac-based PCs, Android-based tablet PCs, Windows and Linux. It also supports USB dongle-typed WLAN wireless communication as well as basic wired communication.

In addition, Bixolon’s new desktop label printer is equipped with functions such as Smart Media Detection, which distinguishes the type of label and length of paper (gap, black mark, continuous forms, etc) and implements printing work automatically. Other features include auto-recognition of the major programming languages such as ZPL and EPL and output function.

The Energy Star-certified SLP-TX420 features a 242 ft. printing ribbon and print speeds of up to 7″ per second, 17 percent faster than comparable models found in the market according to Bixolon.

The SLP-TX420 also includes Bixolon’s complementary label design program, Label Artist, which can retrieve and print out databases prepared in a file format of Excel, Text or Access.

It is intended for high-frequency printing with the improved durability of major printing components. In addition, it features fast data processing due to a high-capacity memory (64MB SDRAM, 128MB FlashROM) and is capable of printing labels for an extended period of time with the exterior long-length paper using an optional accessory.

Bixolon chief executive officer JS Oh said: ‘People have been thinking that desktop printers are less reliable compared to high-priced industrial printers. However, users of Bixolon’s desktop label printer are highly satisfied by its compact size, work effectiveness, durability and user convenience.
