Metal vs. Plastic
One touch tells you that this is not a plastic printer. We know the environment and the workload the C Series printers must endure. Using solid metal framing, print mechanism, and components gives it the rugged and industrial strength to stand up to some of the most challenging environments. This industrial build is what enables the C Series to compete with table top printers.

Flexibility Provides Versatility
The C Series delivers flexibility and versatility to meet mostly any applications. For on-demand printing applications, the C Series small footprint, LCD menu, and USB-A port provides a user friendly solution. With high volume printing, the back expands to accommodate an 8 inch roll to maintain its compact footprint. The C Series also offers a 300dpi print solution for high resolution and graphics printing.

Stand Alone Application
Use the USB-A port to attach scanner or keyboard and the LCD menu for on-demand labeling.

C Series

All-Metal Build for Increased Reliability
One touch and lift of this printer will tell you this is no cheap, plastic component printer. We understand the workload these printers endure which is why we use metal in all critical components so the printer can stand up to daily wear-and-tear.

C Series

8" OD Roll Capacity
Back drops out so you can insert a 8" OD Roll capacity for high volume applications, equivalent to some of the larger table top printers.
