Brother Mobile Solutions, Inc. (BMS) a wholly-owned subsidiary of Brother International Corporation and premier provider of mobile and desktop printing solutions, has released a series of rugged mobile printer cases for the PocketJet® 6 full page mobile printer. The new PJ6 Rugged Roll Case and the PJ6 Rugged Fanfold Case allow mobile workers to print full-page documents in the field, anytime, from virtually any device.

The tough, yet compact PJ6 Rugged Roll Case was designed for optimal user versatility both in and out of vehicle. The roll case can be carried comfortably and conveniently with a provided shoulder strap, and is small enough it fits easily into a briefcase for professionals in home healthcare, pest management and other mobile industries. Additionally, it has unique mounting features for use by public safety, emergency services, and other in-vehicle mounted applications.

The PJ6 Rugged Fanfold Case features a flat writing surface, document clip, carrying handle and features for mounting a tablet or in a vehicle, if needed.  The fanfold case is ideal when the printed documents must be flat or is reviewed and signed on site.

A wide range of innovative, space-saving PocketJet mounts - developed by Brother resellers - are already on the market for in-vehicle printing. However, Brother’s own design engineering team took the lead on the new mobile printer cases.  According to Palacios, “The size and scope of the mobile workforce is evolving and so are their demands for on-the-fly and point of service printing.  Our new rugged mobile printer cases were engineered to meet the specific size, weight, durability and ergonomic requirements of today’s truly mobile professional.”  

The PJ6 Rugged Roll Case and the PJ6 Rugged Fanfold Case offer an ideal solution for mobile businesses across a wide range of disciplines, including; public safety, home healthcare and hospice, pest management and inspection services ‒ in fact, wherever there is a need to print out high-quality, full-page documentation such as diagrams, instructions, invoices, citations or reports. 

The new cases hold everything needed to print on-the-fly from any Brother PocketJet 6 mobile printer ‒ including the PJ-6, PJ-6 Plus and PJ-673 (for iOS devices) ‒ plus thermal paper and even an extended battery if desired.
