Zebra ZD420c und Zebra ZD420t - Thermotransfer

Thanks to the thermal transfer printing process, the Zebra ZD420c and ZD420t produce monochrome, very durable prints on a variety of materials. Depending on the model, ribbon cassettes or ribbon rolls can be used.
The Zebra ZD420c with ink ribbon cassettes impresses with its fast and simple operability - the cassettes can be replaced by anyone with just one movement.
The Zebra ZD420t model series prints large quantities of materials with the same ink ribbon at particularly low cost. Costs can also be saved by intelligently supporting two different ribbon sizes: Since both 74m and 300m ribbons can be used, the automatically announced ribbon change is reduced by 75%!

Zebra ZD420 direct thermal printer

The Zebra ZD420 desktop label printer is available in the Zebra ZD420d version for direct thermal printing.
Zebra ZD420d - Thermodirekt

Thanks to its printing process, the Zebra ZD420d direct thermal printer does not require any additional consumables - monochrome labels are thus produced at particularly low operating costs. The Zebra ZD420d is extremely easy to use: By eliminating the need for ribbon cassettes or ribbon reels, only the thermosensitive label reels need to be replaced to ensure continuous label printing. This makes the Zebra ZD420d particularly suitable for environments in which speed and continuous operation are essential, such as at the POS. The particularly slim, compact and lightweight design for the ZD420 series allows the Zebra ZD420d to fit even the smallest areas.

The Zebra ZD420c/d/t-HC models are made of disinfectant- and UV-resistant plastic and have a sealed key surface, making them particularly easy to clean and disinfect in hygiene-sensitive environments such as hospitals.
