I'm not sure if wmic will work since that is a windows-based command that interacts with either the local or remote Windows-based system.  I don't have a Dell printer to try this on, but this command failed to get any info on the Brother & Kyocera printers we have in my office.  I got an error that said:  "The RPC server is unavailable."

I would just use the web interface to connect to the printer using a browser and its IP address.  You should be able to find the service tag on that page (I wanna say it's under Printer Settings, but I'm not 100% sure).

Sorry, I didn't read the question completely that you want it for the printers.  You could get them as mentioned above from the web interface or from the telnet command also which could be scripted.
