Description

This procedure describes ZM-Series Printer Label Loading

Applies To

ZM Series Printers used in Tear-off, Power Peel, Value Peel, Rewind or Cutter

Overview

The ZM-Series printer supports multiple presentation modes based on a user's application and the options installed. The typical functions are as follows:

Rewind Mode - Requires a Rewind Option and allows a user to rewind the labels on a Media Take Up spindle driven by a power rewind. This is normally used for batch printing where the labels are applied or used remotely. There is no backfeed in Rewind Mode.  Rewind Issues? Read More>>

Tear-Off Mode - The printer presents the label gap at the tear bar allowing a user to tear the labels off when they come to rest after printing. 

Cutter Mode - Requires a Cutter Option Module mounted on the front of the printer. In this mode the label is printed then cut for immediate use. Cutter Issues? Read More>>

Power Peel (Peel Mode) - Requires the Power Peel Option that includes the power rewind spindle. A peel module bends the backing so the label separates and is detected by a peel sensor that holds printing until the label is taken. The label liner is mounted on a liner take up spindle and assists peel by pulling on the liner. Power Peel Issues? Read More>>

Value Peel (Peel Mode) -  Requires the Value Peel Option that includes the module mounted on the front of the printer.  The peel module bends the backing so the label separates and is detected by a peel sensor that holds printing until the label is taken. The liner exits and is not rewound and is allowed to fall freely.

The media used can be on a Roll or Fanfold and is shown in the document below.
