Take a closer look at some barcode solutions and you'll find that you have to purchase expensive optional SIMM or DIMM upgrades.
At the same time, these optional SIMM or DIMM upgrades may only be available for certain printer only models.
With Brother, any PCL 5 or PCL 6 Printer or Multifunction device supports barcode printing.

Just how does it work?

It works like this. You supply the Printer or MFC with the information for the barcode – which barcode to print, its size, orientation, etc - the barcode is then printed exactly as it should appear.
It also takes care of error detection and checksum validation. This all happens in the Brother Printer/MFC.
Your host system and network has no additional processing overhead.

Integration with SAP

And of-course, Brother’s barcode printing solutions is fully supported by SAP R/3 systems using Brother’s SAP developed device type. The results are impressive.
The quality of your barcodes reflects Brother's exceptional printing standards. That means they can be read with ease by any type of barcode reader. With Brother, you make the grade instantly.
