Processing shipments more quickly and effectively increases productivity and reduces errors. That’s just what the RL3e (72 mm/2.8 in) and RL4e (105 mm/4.125 in) printers are for. We’re so confident they can keep pace in the busiest distribution centers, warehouses, and supply chain/logistics environments that we back them with a two-year warranty.
