We are excited to announce the introduction of the TE210 and TE310 models to the TE200 Series of affordable, high-performance desktop label printers.

The TE210 and TE310 models share the same proven construction and print mechanism but offer more memory and enhanced communication capabilities thanks to new electronic mainboards. Both new models are shipped standard with Ethernet, USB, USB-Host and RS-232 Serial port connections. Bluetooth communication is also offered as an option.

Units are available now. Updated specification sheet is available for download HERE.


The TE200 Series provides customers throughout the world with a competitive, durable, entry-level desktop printer that is both versatile and easy-to-use. The series now offers four models.

The first two models available in the TE200 series are the flagship TE200 and TE210 which offer the industry standard 8 dots per mm (203 dpi) print resolution at an industry best 6 inches per second, and the 12 dots per mm (300 dpi) TE300 and TE310 for use with printing small fonts, barcodes, or graphics. The TE200 Series offer customers a great combination of price and performance, that features a fast 400 MHz processor, TE200 and TE300 features 16 MB of DRAM and 8 MB of Flash storage memory, while TE210 and TE310 features 64 MB of SDRAM and 128 MB of Flash memory, and a two-year warranty that is the best in the thermal label printer industry.

The new TE200 Series of 4″ wide desktop-class thermal label printers were designed and built to deliver best in-class performance at a price other printers in its class simply can t match. The TE200 s modular thermal transfer print mechanism protected by an outer ABS shell is designed to withstand tough environments. These affordable, hardworking printers will print high quality labels all day long, producing thousands of clear, crisp barcode and identification labels per day.

Innovations include energy saving Energy Star 2.0 rating matched with an easy to load print mechanism. The printer will take both 1/2″ core 72 meter to 110 meter, or 1″ core 300-meter thermal transfer ribbons allowing customer to use whichever supply of ribbons they have available. The TE200 offers multiple printer language emulations right out of the box, and a powerful scalable font engine which makes it easy to replace nearly any existing label printers.

Both the printhead and platen roller can be easily changed without using any tools. The printer features both Gap and Black Mark sensing to accurate label registration. And the media cabinet can handle industry standard 5 inch OD labels on 1″ or 1.5″ cores or even handle larger 8 OD label rolls on its optional external label unwinder.

The TE200 Series innovative design offers our resellers new opportunities to satisfy unique market applications. The print mechanism which normally resides within the printer may be purchased separately for those looking to integrate custom label printing capability into their own manufactured designs. Applications for this unique print mechanism can include use with kiosk applications, small label applicators, two color on-demand printing, and two-sided printing.


Case Study – Cipherlab 1166 For Warehousing

CipherLab Scanners Sink Competition at Sierra Marine

Sierra Marine, with headquarters outside of Chicago in Litchfield, Illinois,has been the leading manufacturer and supplier of marine engine and drive parts for more than 35 years. The company is a manufacturing division of publicly traded Teleflex Marine, and distributes more than 6,000 products to stores worldwide. Recently, the company s rapid expansion of its warehouse created difficulties for its employees. As the floor space grew, employees could no longer manage inventory in real-time due to the short wireless range of their old handheld scanners. As a result, data had to be manually  uploaded to a database when the scanners returned within range of the server. The problem was exacerbated by the age of Sierra Marine s handheld equipment, which began to fail on a regular basis.

Case Study ? CipherLab 8300 for Retail

L Etoile Selects CipherLab 8300 Series to Open Stores Faster and Improve Efficiency


In the highly competitive perfume and cosmetics industry, L Etoile has become the largest retail chain in Russia in just ten years. Over 30 stores stretch across Moscow, plus boutiques can be found in more than 25 regions around the country. Customers shop among 150 world famous brands from around the globe Christian Dior, Burberry, YSL, Matiss,Gucci, Clarins, and others, with the busiest buying season between December and April.

The business of beauty with beastly challenges
Though L Etoile offers many different brands, similarities exist with various manufacturers creating nearly identical products in comparable packaging. In some cases, the names in different languages provide the only differentiating characteristic. With so many products, manual inventory   both while stocking a new boutique and during daily receiving of goods   was time consuming and prone with errors. It took two to three days to inventory a new boutique. This was important time that could have been spent selling   instead of counting   product.

Case Study – TSC Alpha 3R for Healthcare

TSCs barcode system ensures patient safety, streamlines hospital testing and specimen tracking

Market: Healthcare
Application: Expedited patient treatment and specimen tracking
Model: Alpha-3R

Background: With the aid of TSCs Alpha-3R portable printer, Taiwan hospitals are able to easily print patient information, nursing staff IDs and test tube labels, while expediting doctors  instructions to nursing staffs.

Solution: After a member of the nursing staff inspects a patient s record via computer, he or she downloads and double-checks the doctor s instructions. The Alpha-3R barcode printer is then used to print the patient s ID data on a label, along with test tube labels for patient specimens and an ID label identifying the attending nurse. When a patient undergoes a test, a hand-held computer (personal digital assistant) can be used to verify the name of the patient, identity of patient specimens and name of the attending nurse.

Automated wireless connection to lab-test instruments for improved specimen tracking.
Reduction of the time spent traveling between a patient s hospital bed and the nursing station.
Increased efficiency and quality-control of patient-specimen testing.
Elimination of noisy dot matrix printers (which can disturb patients), resulting in a reduction in paper costs. Read more

Case Study ? TSC TTP-2410M for Tire Manufacturer

Major tire manufacturer uses TTP-2410M printer to increase efficiency and meet EU regulations

Market: Tire industry
Application: Label printing for major tire manufacturer in Taiwan
Model: TTP-2410M thermal transfer label printer

Situation: The production of tires is a complex process involving many fabrication steps and a variety of rubber compounds. Rubber compounds are first mixed and then moved to a bead-wire assembly station. The material is then transferred to an extrusion station, where the compounds are processed and later moved to another station to be cured in a press under heat and pressure.

New EU regulations, which go into effect in November 2012, require tire vendors to provide consumers with information about fuel efficiency, wet grip and noise class in all promotional materials and on a label attached to the tire itself. The regulations govern all light and heavy-duty tires (C1, C2 and C3).

Solution: The tire manufacturer selected TSCs high-speed TTP-2410M label printer to track materials during the assembly process. With its fast throughput, the TTP-2410M is ideally suited for Just-in-Time production. Operators are able to quickly print tracking labels that are then attached to each item so that it can be clearly identified during the assembly process. To meet the new EU regulations, a label that lists product specifications is printed and attached to each tire during the final stage of production. Read more
