  • For organisations with automated print needs

    A critical piece of print and apply applications, you need a rugged, reliable printer that will perform with minimal down time in high speed, high throughput environments. Delivering world class efficiency and flexibility, the ZE500 Series is an innovative OEM print engine that is simply to integrate, operate and maintain. Expanded RFID features deliver greater tracking capabilities for improved operational efficiency.

  • Simplified Serviceability

    Simply put: downtime is costly to your operation. The ZE500 mechanical design simplifies and shortens maintenance and consumable replacement time – dramatically reducing downtime in your mission-critical print-and-apply application. The wide-open printhead makes cleaning and replacement simple, and the quick-change modular drive system reduces printer repair time.

  • Ideal for even the harshest environments

    You need to keep your mission critical print-and-apply applications operating without interruptions, 24/7.  The sealed front panel buttons and electronics enclosure are dust resistant for harsh environments. The robust, fan-less construction prevents debris from being drawn into the print engine and the all metal construction ensures optimal long term performance.
