Zebra ZD421 thermal transfer printer

The Zebra ZD421 is available as a thermal transfer printer that can print with both ribbon cassettes and ribbon rolls.

Especially with the ribbon rolls, large quantities of print materials can be printed cost-effectively. Further costs can be saved additionally by the intelligent support of two different ribbon sizes: 74m and 300m length.

Another advantage of the thermal transfer printer is the wide range of printable materials. Whether PVC or cardboard, with the Zebra ZD421 thermal transfer printer you choose the basis for your cards.

Zebra ZD421 direct thermal printer

The direct thermal printing method is also supported by the ZD421 in its own printer model.

In this case, the label printer does not require any additional consumables and creates monochrome labels in very good quality. This makes it particularly suitable for environments with fast and continuous operation, such as at the point-of-sale.

Zebra ZD421 Healthcare Printers

Designed and certified specifically for healthcare facilities, the ZD421 series healthcare label printers are the optimal choice for hospitals or clinics.

Made of disinfectant- and UV-resistant plastic, the printers are especially easy to clean and disinfect in hygiene-intensive environments. Yet they retain all the benefits of the ZD421 range, such as ease of use, practical design and flexibility. For extra security, the printers offer an optional security feature that can protect sensitive media and data.
