A barcode label printer – those peripheral hardware equipments very similar to conventional printers but specifically designed to print barcode labels – find ample usage in many industries worldwide. A barcode label printer is a common sight in most production facilities and warehouses but it is also not rare to find a barcode label printer in administrative offices and many service industry facilities.

A barcode label printer main purpose is – obviously enough - to print barcode labels, yet bar coding has almost infinite uses nowadays. There are so many uses for barcode labelling then that a barcode label printer can be found doing quite ordinary and some really extraordinary work.

One of the most common uses for a barcode label printer is in grocery stores, department stores and most retail shops that deal with food and common household products. Barcodes obtained using a barcode label printer help greatly to keep track of product stock quantities, classify products according to type and class and reduce shoplifting causes by tag switching. With a barcode label printer you can obtain tags that only can be read using proper equipment, thus the buyer will not be able to switch prices without the cashier noticing the tag change.

Another common place where a barcode label printer can be found is industrial warehouses. Using a barcode label printer to classify industrial equipment is a great way to keep track of where it is and who’s using it. Most storage facilities usually have a barcode label printer to adequately label spare parts and keep track of stocks and storage locations too. Conventional warehouses also find a barcode label printer useful to tag their products and reduce inventory levels by reading the product tag with a special machine when an order is being dispatched.

On the service industry a barcode label printer has many uses too. Most airline tickets are printed by a type of barcode label printer, and another similar machine is also used to make luggage tags that help the airline keep track of luggage. As you can see, a barcode label printer is nowadays – without doubt - a really useful piece of equipment.
