Brother P-Touch: Your industrial labeling partner

Stay on top of safer, more efficient electrical and data systems
with attractive, industrial-grade labels

Disorganized, mislabeled wires, panels, and boards can slow down an electrician, engineer, or IT professional during instances when rebooting systems as quickly as possible is critical. Creating efficient, safe, and more organized electrical and data systems is as easy as a press of a single button with the Brother P-Touch line of professional labeling machines and TZe industrial-grade tapes.

Reliable innovation
The P-Touch labeling machines are built with Brother’s unique printing technology to create labeling solutions that make a huge difference in organizing systems.

Labels can be printed vertically or continuously to wrap around cables and pipes, and with multiple lines or frames. The Auto Cutter Function allows users to create labels according to specific sizes and to reduce wasted tape.

Users can create a series of labels with automatically increasing alpha or numeric identifiers to make identifying equipment and inventory items easier. For maximum efficiency, the Brother P-Touch machines can also print multiple copies unattended while the user performs other tasks.

User-friendly software
At the core of the Brother P-Touch product range is a user-friendly software innovation that allows users to intuitively learn how to design, edit, and print professional labels in a couple of simple steps. Different fonts, drawing tools, clip art, special characters, and bar code symbols are built into the P-Touch software, allowing users to create labels that fit their organization needs right after taking the machine out of the box.

Tale of the tape
To complement the P-Touch hardware and software, Brother developed the TZe tapes to allow users to produce durable laminated labels specifically designed for extreme environments. These tapes come in a wide assortment of sizes and colors, and can withstand extreme temperatures, high pressure, and sunlight, as well as constant exposure to water, moisture, grease and other lubricants, harsh chemicals, and even industrial solvents without losing their strong adhesive properties.

The applications of this technology in the field of electrical engineering and data communications are countless—Brother TZe tapes can function as faceplates for flat surfaces, cable wraps and flags, and to create an easy-to-read patch panel labeling system. 

“We strive to deliver innovation even in the smallest aspects of personal, professional, and industrial lives,” said Glenn Hocson, Brother Philippines President. “Brother’s innovations, including the P-Touch system, truly shine in situations where details matter the most.”
