ALTRINCHAM, England, March 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --Today Maxatec announces the availability of the new line of 6" thermal transfer label printers from TSC.  The price-competitive TSC TTP-268M series is powerful and packed full of features commanding a strong position amongst more expensive products from leading manufacturers.

Six (6) inch wide labels are often required in industries such as agriculture and logistics, where the printed label can be subjected to harsh conditions.  The TTP-268M is available with 300 dpi (TTP-366M) to deliver high resolution printing at an impressive 6 inches per second providing high quality, long life labels, in addition to 2D barcode and graphic printing capabilities.

The die-cast aluminium housing opens easily for media loading and maintenance, with the print head and the platen roller being replaceable in seconds.  The 6 inch printers have a large memory, 32 MB DRAM and 8 MB Flash, which can be used for fonts, symbols and graphics.  In addition the printers support industry leading emulations which makes replacing existing estates even easier.  1D and 2D barcodes can be printed, as well as the more powerful GS1 Databar and the printers are also suitable for wide, transverse barcodes without the need to rotate the image.

Andrea Percival, managing director of Maxatec said: "TSC are renowned for bringing high quality, reliable products to the market. The TTP-268M has all the features that the leading competition have, but the pricing of the latest TSC products bring them into a niche on their own. TSC back all of their auto-id products with a two year guarantee, plus they are excellent at supporting the channel whether it be technical, marketing or commercial requirements."

Percival continued: "The TTP-268M is available in 203 or 300 dpi, with a print speed of up to 8 ips for the 203 dpi version.  Standard features include a large LCD display, built-in Ethernet, USB 2.0, Serial and Parallel communications as well as a PS/2 key board interface.  The SD Flash memory card slot allows users to inexpensively add up to 4 GB of additional storage memory."  Percival concluded: "Another great product from TSC and we already have a number of large opportunities for this product even though it has only been released this quarter."
