Brother RuggedJet

The Brother RuggedJet thermal printers will make your life easier! These printers allow you to wirelessly print labels and receipts from any wireless or AirPrint enabled device. In addition to AirPrint compatibility and dual WiFi and Bluetooth radios – these mobile printers offer multiple operating system support including, iOS, Android, Windows Mobile and Windows. If that isn’t enough, free and downloadable SDKs make it easy to print from popular consumer devices, tablets, rugged handhelds and laptops.

Thermal printing technology saves you money! Unlike inkjet printers, there’s only one consumable – Brother thermal media on drop-in rolls. You can say goodbye to inks, toners and ribbons for good.
