Topic or Information

Can I erase sensitive information on a ZXP 9 K Panel?

How do I keep the negative image on a K Panel from being read after printing?

Applies To

ZXP 9 Card Printer


A user may not want to have readable information on the K-Panel ribbon after printing to avoid security issues. There is a driver setting that allows the used ribbon K-Panel to be distorted and thus become unreadable. 

Normally we can read printed information of card from the used ribbon.
