High specification, high speed label printers that include barcode label design software, built-in cutters and networking

Powerful Software

P-touch Editor label design software is included as standard, giving you the ability to create any label required, without the additional cost of purchasing label design software. It supports the most common 1D and 2D barcode protocols, importing of graphic images, and even merging of data contained in Excel and MSDE/SQL databases onto your labels.

Built-in Networking

The professional and reliable method of connecting label printers is typically via a network, and the TD-4100N incorporates a 10/100 Base TX network port as standard. By giving the opportunity to locate the label printer away from the PC, you have the advantage of being able to place the label printer wherever your labels are required. And of course, networking offers the ability for any number of users or computers to print their labels to the same label printer.

P-touch Template Printing*

By designing labels on your PC, and then uploading them to the printers memory, simply send the text or barcode data to be added to the label, and the machine will create and print the new label as required. You can also print labels without a PC connection - for example connect directly to a barcode scanner to print copies of barcodes.

Brother ESC/P printing

Connect to non-windows devices using the RS-232 serial port. By sending simple text commands containing the label format and the text/barcode to be printed, the labelling machine will print the label required. No driver or software needs installing.

Brother RD Label Rolls

The TD-4000 and TD-4100N use Brother RD labels. Available in die-cut and also continuous length rolls, they offer high quality printing, added protection against marking and scuffing and are available in various sizes. In addition to the standard die-cut rolls found on most label printers, you also have the flexibility to use continuous length rolls with the built-in cutter to make labels and signs up to 3 metres in length.

Vertical Markets & Applications

The TD-4000 and TD-4100N desktop label printers both offer the ability to print high quality labels on demand, whatever the label requirement. Printing labels up to 102mm in width, and at a speed of up to 110mm/second, these two fully featured machines also offer a built-in cutter as standard to avoid the need of a cumbersome tear-bar. Furthermore, you can create labels of any length, from 25mm right up to 3metres, by installing a continuous label roll and cutting to the correct size.
