Zebra HC100

The Zebra HC100 is a reliable patient wristband printer which makes wristband printing easier and more cost-effective than laser solutions.

This solution combines the reliable HC100 direct thermal printer with easy-to-load cartridges containing the industry’s only antimicrobial-coated wristbands-Zebra’s Z-Band® wristbands.

Minimal training! Pop the wristband cartridge into the HC100 printer-print individual wristbands on demand. Compare these two simple steps with laser printing, which often requires staff to load forms into a special tray, print labels, apply a label to the band, and fold a laminate over the band. The HC100 printer detects wristband size-adult, pediatric, infant-and automatically calibrates its settings for optimal print quality.
