When you’re manufacturing commercial and industrial machinery, maintaining consistent quality and performance throughout your processes is critical. Marking key components and subassemblies with labels that can endure the often harsh conditions in your operation can be a challenge.
If you rely on preprinted labels, you run the risk of ordering too few or too many, or tossing the whole lot if your labeling needs change because of a revision to a spec, or other requirement. And if you need to replace those labels at the last minute, the delivery schedules may not match up with your production and assembly runs causing delays and downtime.
If you produce standard thermal labels onsite, they can’t always take the stress of your processes. They can smear and smudge and become practically unreadable if they get wet, or even when exposed to high humidity. Plus, they don’t look very professional when applied on the outside of a cabinet or enclosure.
With the PT-9700PC and PT-9800PCN you can easily and affordably address both issues. You can produce durable laminated labels with serial numbers, barcodes, text, graphics and logos whenever you need them – one, a few, or hundreds at a time. Since those labels feature a unique laminated composition, where the text and graphics are printed under a clear protective laminate, they’ll withstand practically anything throughout your manufacturing processes – moisture, abrasion, boiling, freezing, microwaving, harsh UV, industrial cleaners and solvents – and remain affixed, smear-free and clearly readable for years.
The included label-design software provides the capability to create those custom labels on demand with company logos, serialization, barcodes, time/date stamping and more right from PCs or Macs, and to use data from common database and spreadsheet applications to populate those labels.
Because these systems allow you to quickly make the quality labels you need on-demand, and to change label sizes and colors as easily as swapping one interchangeable tape cassette for another, they can be a better answer to ordering and maintaining inventories of preprinted labels for your computer and industrial machinery manufacturing operations.
The industrial-grade Brother™ P-touch® PT-9700PC and network-ready PT-9800PCN barcode and laminated label desktop printers include everything you need to get started – printer, label stock and full-featured software – to start producing the high-quality, durable labels you need right away.
Produce durable serial number labels on demand that withstand harsh conditions
Brother™ laminated barcode labels are so durable they can be applied at the start of production and left on to track through the entire production process – including harsh conditions from extreme temperatures, UV light, minor abrasion and harsh chemicals.
Make short-run rating and nameplates on demand
Although metal plates are the most permanent solution for rating and nameplates, they can be very expensive, difficult to manage as inventory and are wasted if anything changes. Brother™ 360dpi label printers produce premier quality laminated labels and give you the control to print exactly what you want on the label and when you want it – on-demand.
Machine print calibration labels
Handwriting on small labels is difficult and increases the risk of human errors. Brother™ laminated labels can be printed on-demand directly from many calibration management software applications, using data already recorded in the database.
Print small, high-resolution component and part marking labels
The PT-9700PC and PT-9800PCN feature 360dpi print resolution and can print fully formed characters down to 2pt type and more precise linear and 2D barcodes on a barcode laminated label down to 6mm wide – which makes them ideal for printing the small labels needed for marking many components and parts.
Identify cables and wiring harnesses with labels that last – and stay affixed
Abrasion from motion and vibration, extreme temperatures, and possibly chemicals can make marking cables and wiring harnesses with a part number and/or description a difficult labeling challenge. The laminated labels produced by the PT-9700PC and PT-9800PCN not only withstand these scenarios, but also have a special adhesive specifically designed to wrap around or flag cables and wiring harnesses and stay adhered under harsh conditions.
Easily handle varying terminal strip lengths and numbering connections
Brother™ offers solutions that can position and print a terminal strip label by just measuring the center to center distance and typing in the ID’s for each terminal location, plus solutions that can link to a database and automatically trim the length of the label based on the number of columns populated in a particular record.
Create and apply safety labels that stay on and are clearly readable for years
The safety message is only useful if the label doesn’t fall off or the ink doesn’t get wiped off from cleaning. Brother™ labels are not only laminated to protect the “message” from solvents and a wipe down, they are also available in a variety of adhesive types, colors and sizes to meet your needs.
Help improve security by sealing calibrated systems and marking products with tamper-evident labels
Tamper-evident laminated labels from Brother™ are an affordable and effective way to seal calibrated systems and mark products to help improve security. These labels are made with a special face stock which breaks apart and provides a clear visual indicator that the label has been disturbed or removed.
Two-year limited warranty*
The PT-9700PC and PT-9800PCN are durable, industrial-grade laminated label printers and are backed by a 2-year limited warranty* against defects and damage, which includes the print head.
