The edding portable 12 or 25 compact printer enables the redefinition of internal production and logistics processes. Equipped with the immense functionalities of the in-line printer, supplemented by a positioning laser and an industrial rechargeable battery, it offers the perfect solution for use away from the production line in the form of a portable printer. The portable can be used to apply barcodes, datamatrix codes, text and logos in high-resolution 600-dpi quality anywhere. The cartridge system allows color change within seconds, while the original Metabo LiHD battery with 4 Ah can run the printer non-stop for up to 6 hours. With communication technology, it is possible to capture the data for encoding from any existing data source within the company or simply use a barcode scanner to generate the print text.
