Intermec PD43c Printer

The smaller PD43c family of light industrial thermal printers incorporate the latest printing innovations into a compact and affordable package. Ideal for tight spaces, shallow countertops, and pull-out cabinets, the PD series was designed to deliver no-compromise printing performance in the smallest possible footprint. Suited for the distribution center and warehouse, as well as airline passenger service, the PD43 upholds the PD series' long tradition of reliable performance. An all-metal chassis, strong cast-aluminum print mechanism, and tool-free printhead and roller replacement help minimize downtime and maintenance needs.
