After being contacted by the Mater Hospital, Peak Technologies worked with them to source a solution. After much investigation, a solution incorporating an Intermec PF2i Barcode Printer running a 3000A emulation programme was provided. The PF2i is one member of Intermec’s new series of printers made from die-cast magnesium making it both lightweight and durable.
The PF2i printer is specially designed to provide rigorous bar code label printing in areas where space is limited. Users can enjoy all the features and benefits of larger bar code label printers, including stand alone smart printing, without giving up valuable space. The PF2i is designed to excel in demanding applications, printing labels up to 60 mm (2.3 in) wide with features designed to minimize handling.
This printer maximizes label printing by using a full size label roll up to 213 mm (8.4 in) to reduce media changes. The magnetic QuickMount print head eliminates hassles and downtime. The print head is replaced quickly and easily with the magnet and u-brackets ensuring proper alignment, no tools required.
The PF2i bar code printer is exceptionally fast in throughput and printing, reliable, and delivers very high print quality. For applications where space is limited the PF2i printer exceeded the Mater Hospital’s expectations.
