Following along from the ZXP Series top line printer and the lower end ZXP 3, Zebra recently launched the new ZXP 7 which (what a surprise!) sits right between the two.
While the Zebra ZXP Series 7 doesn’t have the sophisticated re-transfer printing technology of the Series 8, it is still a robust machine designed for high output applications.
The output can range from 1375 cards per hour for single-sided, monochrome printing to 200 cards per hour for full YMCKK, two-sided printing with lamination. As one would expect, the ZXP Series 7 can print edge to edge on standard size cards. Because of the modular design of the machine, each station (printing, encoding and laminating can be in use at one time – one of the tricks to keep up with high output jobs.
There are plenty of options available for encoding the cards as well as printing them, including UHF Gen2 RFID.
To be able to connect the ZXP Series 7 and get data into the printer, USB and Ethernet connectivity is standard. Wireless is available as an option if required.
The printer and the media can be locked for security (optional feature) and the printer software can provide more security by tracking and restricting activities. The ribbon and laminate rolls use Zebra’s crafty little RFID chips to ensure that only the correct Zebra materials are used – sorry 3rd party providers.
Zebra has worked at making the new card printer easy to use and maintain. The printer automatically adjusts to differing card thicknesses and ribbon loading is easier than on previous models.
The ZXP Series 7 is a welcome addition to the line up of Zebra card printers. There was way to large of a gap between the ZXP 3 and ZXP 8 and the older Zebra designs are… well, rather old designs!
