Vasaloppet 2016 in Sweden – a great event thanks to TSC


Zorneding, Germany –April 26, 2016 – TSC Auto ID Technology (TWSE: 3611.TWO), a global leader in the AIDC barcode printer industry, had sponsored Vasaloppet 2016 in early March, one of the largest cross country ski events of the world, took place in the middle of Sweden. 


Since 1922 the 90 km marathon from Sälen to Mora in the province of Dalama has been organized. The event serves to commemorate the flight of the nobleman Gustav Eriksson Wasa in 1521. In winter it is organized as ski race and in summer as cycle race - both being a real highlight for ambitious sportsmen and enthusiastic spectators. 

68.024 participants from 55 nations had registered for the nine races this year. Their start numbers were printed on 15 rugged thermal transfer printers of the type TTP-2610MT from TSC Auto ID in a tent at cool temperatures. These high-performance printers for industrial applications are also perfectly suited for such demanding printing tasks in the event sector. They are super fast with 305 mm/s (12 ips), highly reliable and able to process print jobs during stand-alone operation. An additional advantage is that the model used in Sweden has a maximum printing length of 14.732 mm. As a result the change of material and media is reduced to a minimum and the numbers are printed in short time.

TSC was also among the sponsors of this mega event. At the end all participants received their certificate of participation with an at-tractive carrier bag showing the winter motif of Vasaloppet and a message from TSC.

TSC has already confirmed its same degree of support for the summer race in 2016.
