ZD420c – The new Ribbon Cartridge model.

If you are using a thermal transfer printer you know the frustration with changing ribbons. For operators in healthcare or cleanroom manufacturing, changing a ribbon is an undesirable task as they often stain their hands. The ZD420c is the first and only ribbon cartridge printer in the market. Unlike traditional ribbon rolls, the printer alerts you when the ribbon needs replacement and with the cartridge, this can be done in a matter of seconds without contacting the ribbon.
