The Next Generation Xi Series, now with more intelligence and industrial brawn

Advancing the legacy of their industry-leading Xi Series predecessors, the ZT610 and ZT620 combine rugged durability and exceptional performance on a user-friendly, future-ready platform. These next-generation workhorses are designed to help you navigate the rapidly evolving business technology landscape. So, whether you're concerned about growing production line demands, increasing operational complexities, integrating disparate systems or controlling investment costs, ZT600 Series Industrial Printers have you covered today—and for years to come.

ZT600 Series Industrial Printers

A Leap Forward in Industrial Thermal Printing

Zebra’s industrial printers are well known for their durability, fast print speed, long life span and unparalleled reliability. The ZT610 and ZT620 build on that legacy, with the most advanced, comprehensive feature sets of any Zebra stationary printer series. To start, easily navigate printer settings and see status at a glance via the brightly lit, 4.3-inch full-color touch display. To keep your critical operations running smoothly across a broad range of applications, ZT600 Series printers provide:

24/7 Reliability in the Harshest Environments

ZT600 Series printers are built to withstand the most demanding industrial conditions, virtually eliminating operational downtime due to printer failure. Plus, they meet your high-volume production needs, day in and day out, with superior print quality and speed across the widest range of applications.

Micro-Consistent Printing for Top-Quality Micro Labels

Featuring highly precise registration and print line adjustment, the ZT610 offers 600 dpi printing for labels as small as 3 mm high (length) for applications like circuit boards, chips and miniature components—all without wasting expensive media due to improper printing.

User-Friendly Setup, Use, Maintenance & Troubleshooting

Intuitive Print DNA software, powered by Link-OS®, delivers unparalled intelligence and innovation for advanced connectivity, device management and privacy controls. User-friendly design features, including an optional color touch display, streamline everything from deployment to daily use to routine maintenance. Compatibility with other printing systems and technologies simplifies integration and management, while onboard sensors, diagnostics and help resources guide troubleshooting so users don’t have to call in support for every minor issue.

Highly Adaptable, Future-Ready Platforms

The last thing you need is a new piece of technology that will be obsolete in just a couple of years. That’s why the ZT600 Series was engineered with the future in mind—from an adaptable design that allows communications, media handling and other upgrades in the field, to compatibility with SOTI and AirWatch device management software, to intuitive Link-OS applications that simplify updates and reconfiguration as needed.
