The Microplex F40 is four times that speed and with wonderful 600 DPI clarity.
With a list price of under $25,000, the Microplex F40 is a great entry point to flash fusing printing. It can handle continuous labels, tags and forms, media such as PE and PVC. It performs address printing and Cheshire Labels with USPS IMb with an affordable laser.
