TOKYO, June 2011 – Toshiba Tec Corporation announced the newest evolution of Toshiba Tec heavy-duty industrial printers now brings unparalleled user-friendliness to the production line. And as well as increasing overall performance, advances in Toshiba Tec technology have enabled a dramatic reduction in operating costs, further lowering an already legendary low TCO.
Every Toshiba label printer is equipped with the world-class Green technology ribbon saving function. With a nearly 40 % overall lower power consumption compared to its predecessor, the Toshiba B-EX4 benchmarked nearly 50 % lower power consumption on stand-by power against competitor label printers.
The Toshiba B-EX4 at lower than 9W in stand-by, is the ecological industrial printer that qualifies for a New Energy Star rating, beating every other competitor in a recent benchmark test.*1

The Toshiba B-EX4 comes with premium capabilities standard on board. The patented snap-in print head and a tool-less platen replacement are the two major components that now can be serviced by the user, reducing the hardware service cost.
A unique LCD graphical ‘helpdesk’ display improves the settings operation, reduces training requirements and allows users to take immediate corrective action where needed. This extensive Help Function utility is as easy as it gets and unique to this market segment of industrial printers.
Also new in the industrial printer range are the B-EX4 built-in automatic thermal head resolution detection function, DHCP address display and an automatic feeding/back-feeding function to the default position.
Durability = Low Service Cost
Durability is the watchword for Toshiba industrial printers. The Toshiba B-EX4 includes a print head lifecycle of around 4 million inches (100 km). Built on the success formula of the B-SX4, the B-EX4 is a value-packed industrial printer with double ribbon motor control, automatic center media loading, edge type print head, side media opening and additional cost-efficient and user-friendly features on board.
The Toshiba B-EX4 has a real-world print speed of 14 ips compared to 10 ips for the B-SX4, increasing the printer’s productivity by 40 %.
Standard equipped with Ethernet and USB 2.0 and optional parallel port and wireless LAN capability, this Toshiba B-EX4 is packed for fast-paced industrial printing applications with minimal need for maintenance.
The next generation Toshiba B-EX4 is part of a comprehensive line up of industrial printers to help meet and exceed demanding customer’s strategic Auto ID needs.
