Zebra® HC100™ wristband printer

Zebra® HC100™ wristband printer
The HC100 wristband printer with integrated media
cartridge offers a total solution for wristband printing.
Designed with the user in mind
• Flexible connectivity options,
Zebra’s complete and integrated wristband solution combines
our new small-footprint HC100 thermal printer with easy-toload cartridges containing Zebra’s patent pending antimicrobial
- Z-Band® Direct wristbands. Its smart technology senses the
wristband type and auto calibrates the settings for optimised
print quality.
The design of the HC100 provides easy-to-use features that require
minimal, if any, user interaction. There is minimal training required
to use the HC100 or to load or switch the cartridge – it’s a quick and
simple task.
The HC100 printer is designed for wristband printing. Administrators
can quickly process patient admissions without having to change
the media in the printer. It also eliminates waste by printing only the
required number of wristbands.
Get the most out of your resources,
put genuine Zebra supplies in!
The easy-to-load cartridges contain our Z-Band® wristbands, supplied with our
patent-pending antimicrobial coating as standard.
The cartridges are available with adult-, child- or neonatal-size wristbands
Each cartridge is labelled with the wristband size, colour and part number,
so you can easily identify the type of wristband in the printer
