Fastmark M5e – Shrink Tube or Traditional Label Printing

Dynamic defines the compact Fastmark® M5e as it is ideal for printing for shrink tube applications in such markets as transportation or manufacturing for cable harnesses, sleeves, heat shrinkable tubes for wire marking, and others. Thermal transfer high quality prints in 300 dpi means easily readable and durable print that lasts for years and withstands temperature extremes, moisture, humidity, abrasion, etc. This is ideal for shrink tube printing.

Traditional Labeling
A second version of the printer is available for 4” wide thermal printing for barcode labeling (linear and 2D), item/asset and shelf tags, and more… making applications for retail, food preparation, healthcare, logistics, warehouse, shipping, process control, industrial/manufacturing, and government easy.

User Friendly Features
Standard features include an easy to read full color LCD display, max print lengths of 450 inches (300 dpi) to 1,000 inches (203 dpi), and fast printing speed (up to 6 ips for 203 dpi).

It also has 64 MB memory (128 MB flash), adjustable media sensor, and an option for Bluetooth connectivity. The printer has a low profile so very little space is needed.

It comes equipped with PAL® and emulations for Zebra, Eltron, and Datamax so it handles virtually any data stream easily.

The AMT Datasouth Difference
For applications with a non-standard emulation or data stream, our proprietary PAL® programming language resides in the (smart) Fastmark® M5e allowing us to load an app that will accept your data stream and convert (including creating barcodes from the data), format and print to fit your needs. You can unplug whatever your printer is and replace it with the Fastmark® M5e printer. And, ongoing service and support, including future changes to the PAL® app, if needed, are available for the life of the printer.
