Sato has introduced PV4, a next-generation, lightweight, and compact mobile printer aimed at providing operators with enhanced efficiency across supply chains.
The auto-ID and labeling specialist has designed the printer for on-the-go tasks across a wide range of fast-paced environments where performance and precision are crucial, such as logistics and distribution centers.
According to Sato, these sectors can fall victim to poor-quality and inaccurate labeling systems that can reduce customer satisfaction. The PV4 aims to combat these issues and provide professionals with significant efficiency, productivity, and sustainability gains across various market sectors.
Laurent Lassus, managing director of Sato Europe, commented: ‘We are excited to announce the launch of our new mobile printer, the PV4. This next-generation solution is the latest edition to the SATO portfolio of printers that aim to provide users with added value and significantly optimize their operational capabilities.’
This latest printer is lightweight, hard-wearing, and compact, making it suitable for indoor and outdoor environments. It also features multiple printing interface options to enable high-quality, quick, and cost-effective printing operations.
The PV4 can print at speeds of 5ips and maintains a print resolution of 203 DPI. It incorporates built-in third-party emulation software, which allows it to be seamlessly integrated into existing workflows without disruption to operations or productivity.
‘At Sato, we are continuously striving to innovate as an organization, and this latest printer release enables our customers to join us on that journey. The PV4 is a truly flexible and durable solution that not only demonstrates our commitment to business improvement but also aligns perfectly with our creative ethos,’ added Lassus.
PV4 is the new product of the PV series and covers the 3in and 4in printer family. It can also print more information on labels compared to the PV3 or PW2NX mobile printers.
The printer also significantly outperforms the company's MB4 printer with faster print speeds, better WIFI connection, and Bluetooth interface performance. The new printer has also been drop tested to 1.8 meters and has four times more battery capacity to provide a longer usage time.
