The PD43 and 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 long tradition of reliable performance of the PD series. An all-metal chassis, strong castaluminum print mechanism, and tool-free printhead and roller replacement help minimize downtime and maintenance needs. With a variety of door options, the PD43 can support a wide range of media – including ink-in and ink-out ribbons with half-inch or one-inch core sizes – enabling maximum time between media resupply. Fast time-to-label and print speeds of up to 200 mm/s (8 ips) ensure that the PD43 can scale with the changing needs of dynamic operations.

The PD43 takes industrial printing to a new level of simplicity, with a color graphic display that makes it easier to set up, configure and fine-tune settings without the need for a host computer. In fact, with Smart Printing capabilities, the PD43 can run apps right inside the printer – eliminating the need for a connected PC entirely.
