Zebra ZM400 Direct Thermal ZM43N-2501-4000DThis Zebra ZM400 barcode printer is packed with great features to save time and money. If you print from 100-10,000 labels a day this is a great workhorse Commercial Thermal Printer.
This Zebra ZM400 direct thermal barcode printer is ideal for cranking out lots of Shipping labels.
This direct thermal model was originally offered to UPS customers printing over 200 labels per day.
The ZM400 is designed to use either the standard 1" core direct thermal labels or the 3" huge rolls.
With plenty of memory to render your job quickly and high speed printing, up to 10" per second, you'll fly through most jobs in under half the time.
It can be installed as a "UPS ZM400" or a standard Zebra ZM400. We have tested it with multiple shipping platforms and a simple barcode program that's included on the CD with no problems.
This model, ZM43N-2501-4000D, is designed to do Direct thermal printing. If you need long term storage more than 1 year or the labels will be exposed to regular sunlight you'll want the Thermal transfer version that uses a ribbon.
It prints from 2"-4" widths up to 18" long. Most people use the perfed labels with gaps like a standard shipping or inventory label. No need to worry about printing small batches, the ZM400 is an industrial barcode printer designed for high volume, so print all you like. The ZM400 prints both thermal and direct thermal labels, if you have long term storage needs load up the ribbon and the paper and print away. If you you're mostly looking for lightning fast shipping labels or your shelf life is under one year use it without ribbon and print direct thermal labels.
These machines have been used in controlled commercial environments, we thoroughly test each machine, repairing or replacing any weak or worn components, paying special attention to cleaning and or replacing printheads, drive belts and platen rollers.
We then retest each printer to make sure it is in great working condition. Solid prints, no memory hiccups, good connectivity, proper alignment, etc. Our last step is a thorough cleaning, the steel case and plastic trim pieces may have minor scratches and reasonable minor wear from normal usage and storage, they are all cosmetically sound.
