Meet the Label King! The LW-PX900 by EPSON and K-Sun

The LW-PX900 label printer is the future of economical and time-saving electronic label, heat-shrink tube, and bar-code printers.

The K-Sun LW-PX900 label printer features a high-speed, 360dpi print output that creates highly visible and detailed labels, bar codes and wire identification faster and with better detail than our competitor’s models. A 4mm standard lead margin, and the ability to reduce tape waste down to 1mm is an industry leading cost saving feature.

Let’s take a look at a great overview video from our YouTube channel.

Industrial specific hot-keys streamline and simplify template selection from among 6 different styles and applications for wire-wrap, patch panels and punch blocks. Never lose a label with our special “Drop-Stop” feature. This is especially handy with the LW-PX900’s exclusive “Pick-and-Print” mode. The printer will automatically wait to print and cut the next label in a batch. With these portable label printers all you have to do is print, grab, and go!

Auto-cut and half-cut come standard in this powerful hand held label printer, and an industry first “Mixed Length” option saves you significant time by allowing you to create variable length labels in a single print! The eight bar-code formats including 2D QR codes, 1000+ symbols, and multiple design effects expand application diversity and expand use for many other labeling needs. Auto alphanumeric sequencing plus repeat and reversed color printing add to the flexibility of label and heat-shrink tube creation.

I do want to highlight the mixed label feature, if you use your printer often you know one of the biggest irritants is the type, print, delete, repeat process when you have many different types of labels that need to get made. The drop, stop and pick option is also a personal favorite due to the magnets (included with the deluxe option) on the bottom of the printer. It’s pretty awesome when you put this printer on the side of a communications rack when labeling patch cords and panels and just pick a label out.

Here’s a quick look on how simple it is to print different labels.

Now that your getting a better feel for the LW-PX900 let’s go over some of the features.

Now that you know the LW-PX900 can do many different types of printing you need some ideas on what applications to use this printer on, here’s a few of the more common ones.

How about we make magnet labels. You can print on many different colors for inventory management, whiteboard, bin labeling or wherever a label is needed but with the convenience of being a magnet.

If your looking for something a bit more rugged and durable you might want to consider heat shrink tube markers for electrical, communications, fiber, audio or any type of cable and with sizes up to 7/8″ that should cover you for most applications.

Industrial grade adhesive labels and heat shrink tube markers are also excellent for laboratory, home, office, medical, commercial and anywhere you need a professional durable label.
