The Printek MtP 400 Mobile

Thermal Printer is a rugged, four-inch portable thermal printer that’s ideal for printing labels, receipts, maps, and schematics. Designed to print in any orientation, the printer can be easily transported, mounted in a vehicle or carried on a belt or shoulder.

MtP 400SL

Couple that with the printer’s wide range of media options and you’ll find the MtP 400 to be the perfect mobile printing partner for your needs. The

MtP 400SL (slimline version) is a space-saving configuration which uses a convenient cut sheet paper cassette with simple drop-in loading.

The pre-cut sheets present perfectly every time (i.e., minimum curling) and no tear off is required. The standard

MtP 400 model accepts a large continuous roll for a maximum number of print jobs between reloads. The

MtP 400LP (label printer) includes enhancements such as positioning sensors to optimize printing of labels.

Quick and Efficient Printing

A print speed of up to 3.3 ips allows quick and efficient printing of receipts, invoices or labels.


Ruggedized Printer Case

The printer is overmolded with shock absorbing elastomer, capable of withstanding repeated 4! drops to concrete.

Long Battery Life

A Li-ION battery pack provides enough power to print over 500 times on one charge. The battery can be recharged in about 2 hours, using the built-in charger or the easy to use external battery charger (option).

Plug and Play Compatibility

The printer can be easily configured to emulate other popular printer brands, making it a drop-in replacement in many applications and preserving your prior integration investment.
