Zebra ZM600 Barcode Label Printer

The Zebra ZM600 label printer is the 6″ printer in Zebra’s Z-series of printers. These printers are made to be tough and feature a die-cast aluminum base, frame and printhead mechanism. They are fast with the ZM600 capable of printing at up to 10″ per second (203 dpi).

The ZM600 barcode printer has options for printing at 203 dpi, 300 dpi and 600 dpi. Generally speaking, 203 dpi is for printing labels without graphics, 300 dpi is for printing labels with graphics and 600 dpi is for printing labels that contain high-density barcodes like those used on PCBs (printed circuit boards). You can also choose whether you want a direct thermal model or a thermal transfer/direct thermal model. Most warehouses and distribution centers use the direct thermal ZM600 as they primarily print shipping labels which require a minimum life span; if you need long-lasting labels or labels that need to withstand certain environmental conditions, a ZM600 with thermal transfer capability should be used (Note: Direct Thermal printing does NOT use a ribbon while Thermal Transfer does).

This printer was discontinued in Sept 2014; the recommended replacement is the Zebra ZT420 printer in the ZT400 printer series.

• Thermal transfer and direct thermal operating modes (can only use one mode at a time)
• Die-cast aluminum base, frame, and printhead mechanism
