Toshiba America Business Solutions unveiled the DB-EA4D, a new duplex industrial printer, which the company says makes packing and shipping faster, simpler, and more efficient. The printer, enabled by the latest in double-sided 2ST direct thermal technology, simultaneously prints on the front and back of a label. The ability to concurrently print both a shipping label and packing slip expedites the multiple steps in shipping and eliminates processing errors, the company says. Other advantages include single-step media loading and the ability to print information such as packing lists, return instructions, warranties, or marketing promotions on the back of shipping labels. The DB-EA4D's two-sided printing also reduces the number of printers and labels necessary, thereby allowing companies to operate more sustainably. Toshiba America Business Solutions (TABS) is a subsidiary of Toshiba TEC Corporation, a global provider of office printing and retail solutions.
