In a move that provides the thermal printing market with a new alternative to competitors, TallyGenicom has introduced its new range of mid-range desktop thermal printing solutions.

This extends the company’s range of solutions on the market for the office, back office, factory or warehouse. With a print speed of up to 8 inches per second, the new thermal printers are up to 25% faster than competing products.
“These new thermal printer solutions complement our already rich and varied product portfolio and enable us to provide a complete suite of printing solutions for each stage of a mission-critical business transaction,” comments TallyGenicom SA’s director, Peter Vieira. “Our thermal printer portfolio mixes the connectivity and functionality customers are used to with our industrial printing solutions with a compact footprint and industry-leading quality print speeds.”
The new 7005, 7006 and 7008 printers can cover everything from 2- to 4-inch thermal transfer and direct thermal printing for applications across a variety of industries such as retail, healthcare and logistics.
The entry-level TallyGenicom 7005 is the ultimate thermal desktop printer, offering performance and features until now only found in mid-range industrial machines. The 7005 has an industry leading 32-bit internal processor and 16Mb of DRAM for best-in-class ‘first label out’ print speed and can be easily integrated into legacy systems through a variety of firmware and connectivity.
The 7006 and 7008 boast a die-cast metal user interface built to withstand harsh environments, yet retain elegance appropriate for the modern office, government and departments of retail areas.
The compact 7006 offers the performance and features of industry-strength products at a desktop price point. In addition, it has a compact footprint and space saving external power supply, large roll capacity for high volume applications and prints speeds of up to 6 inches per second.
The 7008 is the only desktop thermal printer on the market to include a fully programmable LCD menu as standard. A USB input negates the need for a computer connection for external applications such as flash cards, weighing scales, barcode readers or keyboards.
“The 7000 series is a fast, solid, well-built product line, designed for hostile printing environments, whilst in line with TallyGenicom’s heritage of robust, reliable printing solutions,” adds Vieira. “Uniquely they bridge the gap between mid range and desktop models; they are competitively priced without compromising on exceptionally high performance and quality.
“Thermal printers are commonly used in logistics, manufacturing, retail, healthcare and pharmacy industries. This is a traditional stronghold for TallyGenicom in South Africa and we feel that we should be able to grain traction in a relatively short time frame as our customers have become accustomed to a quality product offering, backed by skilled technical expertise from TallyGenicom. We are excited to enter this space with a powerful product offering.”
Thermal printers can be used in a variety of environments, such as shipping labels on ecommerce goods, patient wristbands in hospitals and price labels in supermarkets, whilst thermal printers are currently mainly used to print simple barcode labels. TallyGenicom’s thermal printers are future-proofed to print next-generation RFID tags.
