Compact Industrial Printers
Available with direct thermal and thermal transfer printing in both 2” and 4” media widths, these products will shape the future of the on-demand barcode and label printing market. Our products are packed with attributes that go beyond “feeds and speeds.”
Why Compact Industrial?
In developing the C Series printer family, Cognitive recognized that today’s desktop and mid-range printer products frequently come up short for users in printer performance, price and footprint. Many customers are forced to buy up to expensive mid-range printers to get the speed and essential features they can’t find in the more affordable desktop models. Other customers are forced to sacrifice performance to meet their budgets and buy down. Neither solution is optimal for users.
Cognitive saw the opportunity to create a new printer family to fill the traditional price/performance space between low and high end printers.
We call our printers “Compact Industrial” and label them as the C Series.
Compact Industrial gives customers what
they are looking for
Current customer research and our own 20 years of printer experience make it clear that barcode label users today are looking for the following in their printers and vendors:
- Reliability. Rugged and durable printers matched with a comprehensive warranty. One-year warranties don’t cut it any more.
- Connectivity. Built in communications including serial, parallel, USB and Ethernet capability.
- Speed. Fast print speed is important and so is “no wait” first label out performance. Printer users are tired of waiting 6 or more seconds for expensive and antiquated printer processors to do their work.
- Price/Performance. Mid-range performance at desktop prices. Better price/performance is clearly possible where manufacturers take maximum advantage of international sourcing and current processor technology.
- Footprint, Usability & Design. As barcode label printers spread to distributed printing points and become more consciously incorporated into business process and workflow space, usability and design considerations take on new importance
The Solution: The C Series
The C Series exceeds user expectations for fast and feature - rich printers that incorporate the latest technology to keep costs low and reliability high.
