Features & Specifications

The 1" Handheld Anser U2 SmartOne offers maximum portability without sacrificing code quality. Compact, lightweight, and easy to maneuver, the Handheld SmartOne is the optimal choice for companies that require the kind of coding mobility that only a handheld thermal inkjet printer can deliver. 

With all the features of the Anser U2 SmartOne, you can manually print when and where you need for your operation. With a print quality resolution of 400 x 300 DPI, the Handheld SmartOne allows users to create sharp text, stark images, and machine-scannable codes with ease. An all-in-one solution on the go, the Handheld Anser U2 SmartOne is durable and can withstand heavy use. It also uses the same PC software as the Anser U2 Smart, which means data can be transferred back and forth between these two systems using a USB device. 

Additional features include:

  • Built-in encoder ensuring consistent codes 
  • An intelligent dashboard that provides real-time system notifications
  • Automatic ink identification that ensures top print quality
  • 999 message storage with password protection
  • Diverse ink portfolio
  • Porous and semi-porous substrate compatibility (e.g., paper, cardboard, sponge, untreated woods, waxed surfaces, coated paper, plaster, and concrete)

The Handheld SmartOne is the optimal choice for porous and semi-porous coding applications that require free-hand printer use. 

Although most TIJ printing is completed on production lines, there are many scenarios in which handheld printers offer a better way to complete coding tasks. For instance, companies across the manufacturing/packaging spectrum frequently use handheld printers to complete one-off projects, product coding rework, and internal marking applications. Handheld printers also provide a way to quickly mark shipping cartons and building materials with clear text and machine-scannable markings. 

Popular uses for the 1" Handheld Anser U2 SmartOne thermal inkjet printer include:

  • Marking construction materials
  • Coding shipping cartons
  • Placing barcodes on cardboard packaging
