Load, click, and print thermal transfer
The IP Series printer system, featuring smart-cell technology, lets the printer, material, ribbon and software communicate together, letting you load the material, click the software interface, and quickly print a variety of labels, tags, and sleeves. According to the company, compared to other printers requiring up to 15 minutes to change materials, the IP Series needs only five minutes to load. Bi-directional smart-cell technology recognizes the correct material and ribbon combination, visually tracks usage levels, and adjusts sensor positions. Available in 300 or 600 dpi, the IP Series has a straight path to loading media and ribbon, eliminating the need to wind and thread material through a series of mechanics. The ribbon spindle is automatically centered, helping to reduce ribbon wrinkle.
