The SOLID 45ET is a robust 8-inch production thermal printer, designed for toughest demands. Its sophisticated paper tractor feed system is constructed for highest functional reliability and for secure, trouble-free paper feeds at all times. PCL5 ensures compatibility with all standard laser printers and connection to SAP.

The rapid start-up time, fast printing speed and reliable paper feed at all times predestine the SOLID 45ET for smooth integration in demanding logistics and production processes. The optional ‘Dual tractor’ system allows for fast, interruption-free printing – or for printing on two different media types.

Ideal for:

  • Stickers, labels and tags
  • Workflow documents
  • Real-time or batch processing
  • Top sheet printing
