Zebra Printer Duty Cycle – Infographic

Posted December 17, 2013

Zebra PrinterBarcode label printers come in  variety of sizes and types depending on how fast and much they can print. Normally they get grouped into 3 main categories: desktop, tabletop, and heavy industrial. Outside of the obvious size difference between them, their overall print duty cycle varies quite a bit as well. The main concern when choosing the right size printer for your needs is considering the long term print volume you will be dealing with. Any printer can keep printing all day but the main issue will be how often you will have to reload media and replace common parts like your printhead and platen roller.

This infographic looks at Zebra’s most popular printers in each category and provides a breakdown of when and where they are best suited to be used.
