Designed with the user in mind

Zebra’s complete and integrated wristband solution combines our new small-footprint HC100 thermal printer with easy-toload cartridges containing Zebra’s patent pending antimicrobial - Z-Band® Direct wristbands. Its smart technology senses the wristband type and auto calibrates the settings for optimised print quality.

The design of the HC100 provides easy-to-use features that require minimal, if any, user interaction. There is minimal training required to use the HC100 or to load or switch the cartridge – it’s a quick and simple task.

The HC100 printer is designed for wristband printing. Administrators can quickly process patient admissions without having to change the media in the printer. It also eliminates waste by printing only the required number of wristbands.
