Ultra-Rugged High Speed Performance Enterprise Barcode Printer

The Wasp WPL618 industrial barcode printer is the fastest, most rugged and highest-performing industrial label printer in the Wasp printer line – delivering advanced print speeds, durable construction, and high-volume barcode printing in mission-critical applications. Maximize efficiency and throughput with print speeds of up to 18 inches per second, supported by 512 MB Flash and 512 MB SDRAM memory.

The WPL618 industrial barcode printer includes the features your application requires. Flexible connectivity options, including internal Ethernet, USB 2.0, serial (RS-232), USB host (for scanner or PC keyboards), and an optional slot-in 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless module kit make installation easy.

The WPL618 industrial barcode printer is both versatile and easy to use with features like direct thermal and thermal transfer printing, 6-button color LCD resistive touchscreen for fast configuration, and enhanced print quality "Thermal Smart Control" which tracks and precisely calculates the duration that each pixel needs to be heated to provide accurate, crisp and clear labels every time, whether you are printing one label at a time or thousands of labels in a batch.

This industry-leading workhorse is built with a die-cast aluminum print mechanism housed in a durable, yet light weight chassis will provide the durability to keep operations running in the most demanding 24/7 environments. Whether you are adopting barcode printers for the first time, upgrading from another brand, or adding to your existing Wasp printer line the WPL 618's ZPL,ZPL II, EPL, and WPL emulation that are included will ensure application compatibility.

Equipped with a 536 MHz processor, our fastest ever, the WPL618 boosts productivity with high-speed communications that provides ultra-fast printing speeds. The WPL618 comes standard with 203 DPI resolution but it can be upgraded to 300 DPI or 600 DPI for printing small barcode labels or labels that contain graphics.

The Wasp WPL618 comes with a 2-year manufacturer’s warranty covering material defects. If you would like to upgrade this coverage, WaspProtect extended service plans cover accidental breakage and can provide coverage beyond the original warranty.
