PRINTING FLEXIBILITY WITH A WIDE SELECTION OF MEDIA Long-lasting durability and ease of use, plus affordability are the hallmarks of the C168 Series compact printer. The direct thermal and thermal transfer printing modes and an adjustable Reflective Media Sensor affords users a wide range of media choices and printing flexibility. BENEFITS Both reflective & transmissive sensors promote great flexibility to print on most types of labels including continuous, labels with gaps, labels with marks and even labels with holes. The Free External Media stand easily increases the media capacity fourfold, saving you time on changing the media, which greatly enhances efficiency. The innovative “Single Pressure Spring” design automatically balances the pressure on two sides of the printhead module, effectively avoiding ribbon wrinkling. C168 is manufactured with the Industrial Class Stepping Motor used on our commercial models, ensuring strong power and stable performance.
