Original Press Release:
Avery Dennison Adds Zebra ZPL Emulation to 64-bit Printers and Print Modules
emulation is built into new units easy upgrade for existing 6400 series systems PHILADELPHIA-The popular AVERY DENNISON(TM) 6400 Series of 64-bit high-speed tag and label printers and the AVERY DENNISON(TM) DPM 64-bit Dispense and Print Module are now offered with Zebra ZPL emulation. The new feature means that the 6400 Series and the DPM are compatible with existing Zebra printers, including the 140 XiIII and the PAX print engine. The systems can replace or work in conjunction with many Zebra products via simple plug-in installation. The announcement was made by Mark Hansinger, director of marketing, Avery Dennison Printer Systems Americas. Zebra ZPL emulation is available as an option with all new AVERY DENNISON(TM) 6400 Series Printers and AVERY DENNISON(TM) DPM Dispense and Print Modules. It can also be installed on existing 64-bit printers and print modules. "The availability of Zebra ZPL emulation with the Avery Dennison 6400 Series of printers and the DPM print module is newsworthy because it means that companies currently using Zebra printers can replace them with cost-efficient high-speed 64-bit processing or add to their existing network of thermal printers without having to reconfigure their software or data streams," says Hansinger. Avery Dennison 6400 Series AVERY DENNISON(TM) 6400 Series Printers employ 64-bit processing technology for on-demand printing of product ID tags and labels.
