Premier Zebra GX420 barcode printers support multiple industries due to their wide range of features.

With quick print speeds of up to 6 inches per second, these desktop barcode printers are ideal for environments with on-demand needs and low-to-medium volumes. They produce reliable labels that are easy to scan to prevent errors when tracking specimens, products, and patients.

And, with standard features such as 8 MB of SDRAM, a maximum print width of 4.09,” 203 dpi print resolution, and a compact size, it’s no wonder the Zebra GX420 printers find homes in industries across the globe, including retail, healthcare, and manufacturing.

Options also contribute to the widespread use of Zebra’s G-Series printers.  First, you can choose direct thermal or thermal transfer print modes. You may also opt for printers with peelers, extended memory, and 10/100 internal Ethernet connectivity to improve usefulness and performance.

If you require wireless printing, you’re in luck. Some Zebra GX420 printers offer Bluetooth or 802. 11b/g compatibility for wireless transfer of data. All models include both EPL and ZPL print languages, making it easy to integrate these printers with your network.
