Intermec, Inc. (NYSE:IN) today announced the PM23c, a new 2” mid-range industrial printing solution and an extension of Intermec’s PM43 and PM43c printer platform. The PM23c is an all-metal barcode label printer primed for mission critical markets and applications such as airline passenger services, manufacturing, and retail, including product labeling and food traceability, where maximizing productivity drives results.
“The PM23c is built upon more than 40 years of innovation in printers, and joins the recently launched PM43 and PM43c industrial printers for a complete mid-range printing line designed specifically to meet the demanding challenges faced by our customers worldwide,” said Chuck Dourlet, Intermec Vice President of Printers & Media. “The PM23c also offers airline customers continued support in fast, reliable printing for passenger services, improving customer service and increasing overall efficiency.”
The PM23c offers all of the same advanced capability of the PM43 and PM43c, and is one of the industry’s best communicating printers with a full color touch-screen featuring 10 languages or an easy-to-use universal icon User Interface. This family of printers also offers a multi-lingual intuitive web-based device management interface, and WiFi- and CCX-Certifications. Also, with optional Bluetooth connectivity, the printer offers a leading range of industry standard and supported wireless connectivity choices.
Additionally, the PM23c maximizes uptime and reduces frequent media handling via Precision Print, easily printing small barcodes, text and images with pinpoint accuracy to save customers time and money.
The PM23c also helps to reduce labeling errors and increase process efficiencies with Intermec’s industry-leading Smart Printing capabilities, including the recently announced Intermec C# Smart Printing language. Smart Printing with C# enables users to easily create stand-alone applications developed through the embedded modern programming language to allow users to directly control other devices such as scanners, scales, keyboards and other peripherals through the printer.
“According to our research, enterprises actively seek compact printers that deliver the print precision, quality and speed needed for industrial printing jobs, while working seamlessly with other peripheral industrial technologies,” said Richa Gupta, Senior Analyst, AutoID & Data Capture at VDC Research Group. “Intermec’s new PM23c industrial printer is designed to be a good fit for constrained work spaces in transportation and passenger service applications given its compact body and baggage tag printing capabilities. With the release of this product, Intermec continues to sharpen its focus on delivering an enhanced user experience across diverse markets and application environments.”
