Brady Corporation (NYSE:BRC), a leading manufacturer and marketer of label printing systems and materials, has introduced its newest stand alone portable label printer, the BMP®51 Label Maker designed for customers who need to make labels on the go in a variety of industries, including voice and data communications, electrical, facility and safety, product and panel manufacturing, and laboratories. It joins Brady's BMP®53 Label Maker, launched in November 2011, in offering wireless connectivity options for designing and printing labels using Android smart phones.
The BMP51 Portable Label Maker features a large backlit display screen, easy-to-use label-design applications, a QWERTY keyboard and connectivity options for wireless printing, as well as material recognition and automatic label formatting to eliminate the need to calibrate the printer at start up. Other time-saving features include automatic font-sizing, high speed print (one inch per second), and USB PC connectivity for advanced label design with Brady’s LabelMark™ Software. The BMP51 Label Maker also offers a variety of material options with over 190 easy-to-load label cartridges to choose from, and prints on continuous or die-cut label materials up to 1.5 inches wide.
“The BMP51 and BMP53 Label Makers are another example of Brady’s commitment to innovation in meeting the needs of our customers to create high-performance labels on-site and on-demand with maximum ease and convenience,” said Brady Vice President and Chief Technology Officer Dr. Robert L. Tatterson. “The new features Brady offers with these products reduce the need to carry a laptop or separate device during on-site label printing. Customers can compose and print directly using the BMP51’s user-friendly keyboard and display, or use an Android-based smart phone with the free Brady Mobile App to read what cartridge is installed and automatically generate the appropriate label template. Within the app, customers can design labels from scratch or customize built-in label formats, edit saved labels, create label templates, and then print labels directly to the label maker. It’s the ultimate in convenience and efficiency.”
