Zebra ZXP 3 ID Printer

The Zebra ZXP 3 is unique to the card printing market, employing several advanced features that provide best-in-class performance at an attractive price point. The ZXP 3 ZRaster host-based image processing technology takes advantage of the increased processing power of today's PCs to significantly optimise image and print quality while increasing overall print speed throughput. This permits greater sophistication in image optimisations without sacrificing printer speed or adding cost. Additionally, new Zebra high performance ribbons employ an improved chemical formulation specifically designed for fast high-quality image printing. Zebra is first to market with the new ribbons, which provide more efficient dye transfer and greater durability under printing conditions. Both these innovations work together to provide better image quality and faster throughput without compromising reliability or cost.
