Zebra ZD420 Advanced Desktop Printer

The latest printer in the Zebra family is the thermal transfer ZD420 – a fast printing thermal printer with a print width of 4 inches. This desktop printer has the functionality and convenience of being compatible with every modern wired and wireless connectivity option. New connectivity options and media handling options can be added on site, which allows the machine to adapt and grow with your business.

A new ribbon cartridge and more status icons maximize up-time by making the printer one of the easiest to use. The ZD420 is the only thermal printer to offer a ribbon cartridge, which takes just a few seconds to load, with fool-proof installation — the ribbon cartridge can only be loaded one way for first-time every-time instant loading. The crypto chip in the ribbon lets you know when the ribbon needs replacing.
