T8000 Thermal Printers

The T8000 is the premier high-end thermal printer. With unmatched industrial performance, easy to use, and 100% verifiable output, the T8000 exceeds the requirements of the most demanding mission critical manufacturing and distribution operations.

Now you can print PostScript and PDF label files.

Overview

Highlights of the T8000 include:

Harsh EnvironmentsCoolest in the industry

The T8000 is built to last with the ability to withstand dirt, grime, humidity, and extreme temperatures. The new T8000 is able to operate in the coldest environments of the industry, with temperatures as low as -5°C (23°F) for direct thermal and 5°C (41°F) for thermal transfer.  The T8000 provides reliable printing, without the need to use a heated enclosure.

PostScript/PDFMaking history in industrial thermal technology

Presenting the industry’s first industrial thermal printer with PostScript/PDF capabilities.  The T8000 offers seamless connectivity of PostScript and PDF file printing for quick deployment, while supporting both 203 and 300 DPI applications in 35 different fonts.  The T8000 supports the latest ERP systems and features Plug-n-Play as a native component with SAP drivers.

User-friendlyLarger color screen and Self-help Wizard

The T8000 thermal printers were designed with your convenience in mind.  Featuring a new user interface with 3.4″ hi-res color display panel, the T8000 thermal printers offer an advanced setup wizard with graphical icons and four navigation keys to configure and optimize your print.  Browse through the QR code library included in the wizard to help you gain quick access to additional printer resources, including how-to videos.

Enterprise Performance – 40% more quality output

From the family of industrial grade experts, the T8000 thermal printers raise the bar in output performance.  Utilizing a high-power ARM 9 processor, the T8000 thermal printer can print up to 14 IPS at 203 dpi – 40% more quality output.  In addition, this printer series holds 512MB RAM and 128MB Flash memory with up to 1GHz clock speed to process complex labels and large print jobs.

Print Quality – Must be ODV™

100% quality barcodes is our mantra.  Pairing the T8000 with the exclusivity of Printronix’s Online Data Validator (ODV™) yields 100% scannable barcodes 100% of the time. The new Printronix HD print technology and intelligent heat management system feature 2x more variations per dot line, ultimately delivering finer resolution in heat applied output.
