Lexmark Integrates RFID Solution With Toner Cartridge Based Laser Printer
Lexmark has unveiled a new monochrome laser printer with toner cartridges that also has built-in Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology.
The device, which is being marketed as a solution to help manufacturing businesses track and tag their assets, can print RFID labels that provide real-time visibility, as well as regular office documents.
Designed as an add-on accessory, the RFID option replaces a drawer on the Lexmark T654 monochrome laser printer, which uses toner cartridges.
"Lexmark's newest RFID solution is leading-edge technology that helps our customers in key vertical markets, such as manufacturing and healthcare, to reduce errors and streamline processes," said Marty Canning, vice-president of the company.
"In addition, customers can also use the device to print and manage their everyday business documents, eliminating the need for and costs associated with operating multiple, single-use devices."
Meanwhile, IT Pro has praised the C736dn office laser printer for the large capacity of its toner cartridges.
