The award-winning T6000e 6-inch RFID industrial printer offers the same benefits as the standard T6000e Enterprise Industrial printer plus advanced RFID benefits.
Available on the 4-inch and 6-inch models, the T6000e RFID capabilities include the ability to encode and print on standard RFID paper labels most commonly used in carton or pallet supply chain applications.This printer can also encode and print on most on-metal RFID tags commonly used in asset tracking applications where the tagged item has a metal surface, such as IT servers, safety deposit boxes, or gas canisters.
The T6000e validates the encoding process and automatically overstrikes and reprints any RFID label (or tag) that fails to encode properly.
The T6000e Enterprise RFID Printers record all RFID labels for the encoding process so users can accurately track the success and failure rates of their labels.
For ease of integration, the T6000e supports most major brands of RFID, inlays and on-metal tags.
This printer series has the additional capability to upgrade to 1D and 2D barcode verification for consistently accurate, readable, and industry standard labels.

There are no printer model number changes. You can identify the new model by the serial number which includes a V3 in the sequence (T6EV3##32#####). These units phased into production in March 2022.
No, the printhead replacement is a simple process that requires no tools.
We recently completed a test comparing the T6000e encoding speeds against our main competitor models. The T6000e performance exceeded the competition by 1.5 to 3.0 times. As such, the T6000e RFID printer provides a compelling performance advantage over competitor models.
The T6000e RFID printer has an RFID label calibration feature in the RFID menu which makes it very easy to setup the printer for both standard RFID and on-metal RFID labels. The calibration process feeds 3-4 labels to determine the optimal encoding position and RF power levels.
For Thermal Transfer applications: printheads are warranted 12 months from shipment or 1 million linear inches (whichever comes first). For Direct Thermal applications: printheads are warranted 180 days from shipment or 1 million linear inches (whichever comes first).
We are not offering an upgrade kit.
Yes, both models have been updated with these changes.
On-metal tags (sometimes called metal-mount or anti-metal tags) are RFID tags that are designed to operate on devices made of metal. The physical properties of metal serve to reflect RF signals and so a standard RFID label would be completely undetectable by an RFID reader. On-metal tags are typically constructed with a thin foam insulator to provide a space between the metal surface and the RFID inlay. On-metal tags are available in several constructions and the ones used with printers are typically up to 1mm thick due to the foam insulator. They also should include a “bridge” between the individual tags to ensure smooth transport through the print station.
Standard Interfaces:USB, Serial, USB host/device and Ethernet. Optional Interfaces: Wireless 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, GPIO, and parallel
To allow thicker tags to move through the print station, several design changes were made:
1. An upgrade gap sensor assembly
2. Changes to the media guide configuration
3. The external antenna assembly was modified
The original T6000e supported on-metal tags up to 1.2mm thick while the mainstream on-metal RFID tag market has settled on thicknesses ranging from 1.0mm to 1.5mm. To support the mainstream tag market we have re-designed the printer to support on-metal tags up to 2.2mm.
