Seiko Instruments USA is expanding its flagship line with a new model, the SLP 440, a small footprint, affordable Smart Label Printer (SLP) offering simple set-up, 300 dpi high resolution thermal printing, 2D barcoding and enhanced networking and graphics capabilities for office use or integration with vertical market applications. Seiko Instruments has added more than 23 new paper and adhesive labels to its label line-up, some up to 2 1/8 inches wide, making labeling items such as shipping boxes, patient records, files or storage bins, easy. The SLP 440 sports new software, engineered using Mac Universal binaries that allow it to run natively on both Power PC and Intel-based Mac systems, as well as most other common Windows platforms. The SLP 440 will be available later this month for an estimated street price of US$159.
