Argox OS Series Label Printers

The Argox Outstanding Series are thermal transfer and direct thermal printers with advanced standard features and flexible options.

They are engineered to meet moderate volume printing applications of up to 5000 labels per day. With the innovative TrueSpeed technology, these printers have rapid first-label printout and can acheive a constant printing speed of up to 3 inches per second. The small footprint requires minimal counter space and their light weight allows them to be moved to any convenient location.

It is fully compatible and has additional features such as; spill proof lid, recessed rear connections to minimise countertop space, larger internal memory, extra USB connector to add a flash drive for additional external memory.
