Distributed printing

If you are printing a large number of labels, you can distribute the print job between multiple printers. The number of labels will be split between the chosen printers, therefore reducing the total print time.

P-touch Transfer Express

By using P-touch Transfer Express, one or more label templates and a database can be easily transferred into a printer via a local USB connection. After a label template has been created by an administrator, it can be distributed together with P-touch Transfer Express to many users and then the label can be easily transferred into each printer locally.

Special ID Setting Tool

The Special ID Setting Tool software allows you to assign a unique name (hereafter referred to as a "Special ID") to a printer connected to the computer via USB cable.
A peripheral device can read the Special ID that was assigned to the printer using the Special ID Setting Tool, and you can create and implement programs that perform a process based on the ID that was read.
The Special ID Setting Tool can be used to help strengthen security and increase efficiency.
