Zebra Printers - The Best Choices By Industry

By aisltd, Thursday, 23rd July 2020 | 0 comments

Choosing the right Zebra printer for your business or workplace will all depend on how you plan to use the label printer, and, the specific industry that you work in.

It can also depend on the application requirements. In this blog post, our AIS experts have looked at the main industries and listed the best Zebra printers according to industry standards. You can use this quick guide to help you decide what model will work best for you.

Zebra Printers For Manufacturing

When it comes to label printing in the manufacturing industry, fast and high volumes are often required. The printers need to be durable and withstand extreme temperatures, dirt, dust, and more. You might also require higher print quality. The best Zebra printer options are Zebra’s ZT600 or ZT400 Series. These label printers print at higher speeds and offer better quality than desktop printers. They can reach speeds of up to 14 inches per second and up to 600 dpi. These Zebra printers have all-metal components and built-in thermal management. For those that require RFID labelling there are Zebra printers too.

Zebra Printers for Transportation and Logistics

In this industry, workflow can include everything from warehousing to yard and terminal operations. It can also include fleet management and delivery services. A combination of different Zebra printers are often required. In busy warehouses the Zebra ZT series of industrial printers are best for fast reliable printing. They can connect with mobile devices and apps so you can print from anywhere. Smaller desktop Zebra printers like the Zebra ZD620 and ZD420 series are great for smaller workspaces. For true mobile printing the Zebra ZQ600 and ZQ500 mobile Zebra printers are excellent. You can print labels using Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and other connectivity options.

Zebra Printers for Healthcare

There are specially designed Zebra printers for healthcare. These have disinfectant ready plastics along with sealed button interfaces. They also come with healthcare compliant features that help to prevent the spread of infection and keep users safe. The Zebra ZD620-HC desktop printer is the best and it comes with premium print quality and speed in a compact device that easily fits at nursing stations or on trolleys.

Zebra Printers for Other Industries

The right model will usually depend on the print volume, the products, and the packaging you will be labelling. Space and mobility are factors that can also be taken into consideration when choosing the right Zebra label printer.
