Rhino 1000

With a label maker, you can organize your workspace and projects a whole lot easier — knowing what goes where prevents headaches long before they happen. DYMO ruggedized its Rhino 1000 labeler for use in an industrial environment. Its rubberized and chemical-resistant outside makes it tougher than your average office label maker. It also offers extra features specifically for the shop.

The Rhino 1000 weighs just nine oz. and measures 6″ x 4″ x 1-3/4″, so you can carry it around all day with relative ease. It can print specialized characters for A/V, electrical, and safety applications, and it’ll do sequentially numbered labels to cut down on typing. Its thermal-transfer labeling tape, with stronger adhesive, sticks better to flat, curved, or rough surfaces.

It’ll make flag-type labels as well as set-width labels. My personal favorite is the ability to print on DYMO’s special heat-shrink wire sheath. All this organizing bliss will cost you about $50.

    non-qwerty keys = not hot

    I have the non rubberized version of this in my office. It is a handy little label maker. The non-qwerty is a non-issue. It is not like you are typing 60wpm on this thing.

    How much tape does it waste on each side of the text? I hate the amount of waste these things create…because BOY is that tape expensive!

  4. Simon says:

    For work purposes I create a LOT of labels so the keyboard is an issue for me. The heat shrink option sounds interesting though.

  5. I use a Brother PTOUCH PT-80 I got it on sale for $10 (I think it’s regularly $30 but just wait next time it goes on sale again I’ll do a Dealmonger post.). It works pretty well and for that price I don’t really care if I break it.

    – It has a Qwerty keyboard.
    – The labels adhere well.
    – Yeah it wastes a bit of tape when printing.
    – I think the refill labels are about $10.

    The handheld form factor pretty much rules out QWERTY — unless you rotated the entire thing 90 degrees, and then it doesn’t fit in your hand well.

    QWERTY is great for when it fits… when it doesn’t (like on many hand-held devices; I program on a large number of them) that also use A-Z key placement. And I’d rather have that than someone trying to invent another crappy, non-standard keyboard layout. We have enough issues with various special keys and key-shift mechanisms.

    I also have a Brother Ptouch (don’t recall the model) and it works fine; it does waste a good bit of tape, but I’ve still only used one tape so far. And I suppose the extra tape was “useful” when labeling ethernet cables with flags (that heat shrink labeling would be sweet though).

    One problem with not wasting tape is that for very small tags it becomes impossible to remove the backing from the label. I’ve even had that problem with short labels on my Brother printer, even with the overage on both sides.
