THE PERFECT FIT
We’ve designed the B-FV4 printer series to be the perfect silent office helper, small enough to fit into the tightest of spaces with the flexibility to integrate into any environment. Stylish and sleek yet rugged and powerful, with print speeds to up to 6ips, it handles even demanding printing applications with ease. (13% faster for the first label print and 8% faster for batch printing compared with Toshiba B-EV series)
Whatever the current application, the B-FV4 series can ‘talk your language’, allowing straightforward integration into existing systems. With a whole host of connectivity options as standard, the impressively flexible printer really does have ‘everything on board’ to manage the most diverse printing requirements. One size fits all – whether direct thermal printing or using thermal ribbons, simply choose the options to suit your application.
DESIGNED FOR THE USER
For ease of use and maintenance, the B-FV4 series has been designed with the user in mind. Drop-in paper loading allows quick and easy changes to media, and critical parts can be upgraded with a snap-in print head and platen assembly. Combined with the all-important Toshiba reliability, the B-FV4 is a rugged and robust workhorse for any environment.
COST-EFFECTIVE PRINTER & MEDIA
