Brady launched what is calls its most versatile portable printer. The BMP71 label printer boasts over 400 different label options and a fast print speed, and can print on more than 30 different types of label materials, including self-laminating sleeves and flag labels, indoor/outdoor vinyl up to 2-in. wide, polyester die-cut labels and more. The BMP71 labeller includes label design wizards for electrical, voice/datacom and safety/general ID applications. With step-by-step instructions and easy-to-use templates, these wizards provide a convenient shortcut for creating popular labels. Hundreds of symbols and graphics are available, and storage space to save more than 100,000 label files. The labeller’s full-colour screen shows a full-scale image of the label as it is being created, meaning there’s no need to create multiple ‘test labels’ to see how the label will turn out.

Greenlee has redesigned its entire line of holesaws to drill faster, stay sharp longer, and provide a cleaner and safer cut. The new design includes a fully hardened tooth for a stronger, longer-lasting saw, and come with 4-6 variable pitch for smoother cuts. The oxide finish resist rust and chip build-up for easier cutting; there’s also no paint on the saw to melt while you’re drilling, meaning no paint gum-up or possible smoke when hot. The holesaws can be used with the Greenlee removable depth-stop for added control and protection when drilling in areas where wires may be present. (Appears EBMag April 2010, Products)GREENLEE
Dynamic Systems has released CheckMate Contractors’ Suite, which integrates Toolroom Tool Tracking, Stockroom Inventory Control and Time & Attendance. This release allows the applications to share the inventory database and employee identification codes, thereby making it possible to track tools and documents without time-consuming data entry. Bar codes are printed on work orders or drawings, badges and labels for tools and inventory. Scanners then scan the bar codes during transactions to record the movement or use of the job, document, tool or other item. This information is transmitted to the job foreman, accounting or purchasing to provide the location of important tools, employee attendance information, parts reorder reports and more.DYNAMIC SYSTEMS

Lenox introduced the HT50 hacksaw frame and T2 hacksaw blade. The new frame design has the highest tension of any hacksaw (50,000 psi), boasts the company, while the T2 blade provides up to two times the life of existing Lenox blades.

The design also features a handle grip that absorbs shock and reduces discomfort in cold weather, says the company, and can be used by both right- and left-handed users. A convenient storage area inside the I-beam is opened without a tool and can hold up to five extra blades. The HT50 also convert to a jab saw. Lenox T2 hacksaw blades will be available March 2010.
