New Design Range For P-Touch Labellers

  • 06 January, 2006 15:20

<p>Brother International (Australia) today unveiled a new generation of P-touch electronic labellers, with the release of the PT-1280 and PT-1830. Incorporating a new luxurious metallic feel, slimline ergonomic design, favourite keys and ability to print on super narrow tape width of 3.5mm, the new models represent superior features, are a delight to use and deliver an ultimate professional result.</p>
<p>The PT-1280 is a stylish and portable electronic labeller which features 3 new favourite label memory buttons for instant storage and recall of frequently used labels. Users will be pleasantly surprised with its ease of use thanks to its ergonomic design. Brother International (Australia) indicates this model will be popular for those requiring basic labelling as well as people requiring portability as a feature, with electricians being a key market.</p>
<p>The PT-1280 prints on a super narrow tape width of 3.5mm in addition to 6mm, 9mm and 12mm tape widths. Brother is the first to release a super-narrow tape width of 3.5mm - it is the smallest available on the Australian market and is particularly suitable for labelling slimline CD jewel cases and many other fine labelling requirements.</p>
<p>The PT-1830 is a professional desktop electronic labeller which features a large pictogram LCD and 5 new favourite label memory buttons. The ‘favourite’ keys allow the user to store, retrieve and print labels at the press of a button and allow more versatility than ever before. Printing on a greater range of tape widths from 3.5mm to 18mm, users now have more opportunity for labelling a wider range of applications, which was not available to them before.</p>
<p>With a slimline, flat design partnered with its luxurious metallic feel, users will find more reasons for labelling due to the sheer enjoyment of its operation and use. Ergonomically designed, it features raised, angled and wider keys for more accurate input and easier operation, unlike many other technological products which may be difficult to operate due to shrinking product sizes. It is also accompanied with a large 15 character LCD with pictograph indicators identifying the size, style and frame options that have been selected, so the user can easily view and change text before printing.</p>
<p>The professional PT-1830 is ideal for retail, office, medical and educational environments. Labelling and organising files, sale items, retail merchandise, medical records, specimens as well as educational aids are but a small indication as to the range of applications the P-touch PT-1830 can deliver on.</p>
<p>Both the PT-1830 and PT-1280 are versatile and easy to use. They both have a large 15-character LCD display and QWERTY style keyboard for easy typing. They have a wide range of type sizes, type styles, print widths, underline and framing options and the flexibility of printing up to 2 lines of text. Both operate on batteries or optional AC adaptor.</p>
<p>Unlike ordinary labels, Brother labels have a laminated coating for exceptional durability. The lamination ensures that it is resistant to smudges, stains, streaks, marks, rips, fading and peeling. Brother laminated label are also water-resistant, UV resistant and heat/ cold resistant ensuring ultimate durability wherever they are used.</p>
<p>Brother P-touch has the unique advantage in the labelling market to be the only supplier of a wide range of tape for use in almost all situations, ranging from the home to the industrial environment. The range of P-touch laminated tapes includes Fluorescent tape, Iron-on Fabric tape, Metallic tape, Tamper Evident tape, Strong Adhesive tape and Flexible Identification tape. Available in a wide assortment of colours and sizes, Brother has ensured almost every need is covered in their tape range.</p>
<p>Brother pioneered the electronic labeller market when it first started operating in Australia in 1989 following its huge success in Japan and overseas. Its dominance in the market was further backed up by its unique laminated labels which Brother now has a patent on.</p>
<p>Complete with electronic labeller and TZ laminated starter tape, the PT-1280 (RRP $99) and PT-1830 (RRP $149) are available across the nation at selected Brother stockists.</p>
