The recent and ongoing supply chain interruption has caused many delays for numerous products. The METTLER TOLEDO printer line was one of the items impacted. METTLER was in the process of evaluating and upgrading their printer line when the interruption hit. It has taken a bit longer than anyone would have liked, but we are pleased to announce that METTLER TOLEDO branded printers are back. They are easier to use and, believe it or not, come in at a lower price than before the pandemic!
The new printer family includes the following models:
This small and compact dot matrix strip printer can quickly record weighing data at over 4 lines per second. It comes with a variety of connection port options including RS232 and Ethernet. An optional external Bluetooth interface is also available. Includes the smart PC configuration tool Ticket+ for creating print templates that match your unique requirements.
The APR331 is a small compact direct thermal label printer with a stainless-steel housing. It is easy to connect to most METTLER TOLEDO industrial terminals via RS232.
