Here we present our special solutions, which we have tailored to customer requirements. Perhaps you will find what you are looking for here, if you have already searched in vain elsewhere.

MobilePrinterBase

There is no mobile label printer with thermal transfer technology for use on industrial trucks, in trucks or other vehicles. We have developed the solution for you. The forklift mount for printers by TSC and Zebra, among others, enables professional and safe placement of the label printers on a wide variety of industrial trucks and other mobile devices.

Mobile Printer Base by Laubner

Special springs as shock absorbers protect the printer from shocks and vibrations. Rubber-metal feet or the optional magnetic feet of the mount fix the printer securely and non-slip on a steel plate. The mount is universally designed and can be used for many printer models. We have developed a very compact, space-saving version especially for the TC200 or TC300 printer models by TSC and for ZD4 and ZD6 by Zebra. All printers are supplied with 24V voltage directly from the vehicle. The mounting is possible horizontally or vertically.

This solution offers a choice of printers with 4-inch print width, 203 or 300 dpi, direct thermal or thermal transfer, with peeler or cutter, with ZPL, DPL, EPL language and more. The printers are connected directly to a forklift terminal in the company network either via a USB interface or a dedicated WiFi client. Perfect roaming is a basic requirement for functionality. The stability and reliability of the solution has been confirmed by many installations over the years.

Best of "Innovationspreis-IT" 2016

The Laubner MobilePrinterBase was awarded as best of the Innovation Award IT 2016 in the field of hardware. The "Initiative Mittelstand" awards this prize to particularly innovative IT solutions with a high benefit for medium-sized businesses.

Printhead Heater for Ambient Temperatures Down to -25 °C (-13 °F)

In some applications, it is necessary to operate a thermal printer under the most difficult conditions (for example, at very low temperatures). Often the printers are required in unheated warehouses or even in deep-freeze storage at temperatures as low as -30°C. However, the printers only work reliably down to about 5°C.

We have developed a solution for this requirement. We offer a modification with a printhead heater for various thermal printer models. The heating power varies depending on the device type and temperature range. The heating modules used regulate the temperature automatically. Especially when used in changing environments or weather conditions, undercooling or overheating will never occur. The most demanding installation so far consists of several Zebra 220XiIII printers, which are used in the cold storage warehouse of a retail company at -26°C. The printers create picking documents on thermal paper with control from SAP.

Working in a deep-freeze storage with thermal printers can be challenging

Key Benefits

  • No condensation in the printhead area, even when ambient temperatures vary greatly.
  • The heater works even when the printer is switched off, therefore no temperature-related start-up difficulties at the beginning of printing.
  • Self-regulating heater, does not need to be removed in summer.
