The Postek TX Series Industrial printers are true industrial grade printers, featuring innovative state-of-the-art technology and superior quality workmanship. Their all metal frame and unique core construction form a sturdy and durable stationary printer platform. The two-line graphic LCD provides constant monitoring of all print jobs. Users can access the setup menu with one touch, along with one touch media calibration.  A powerful control system can easily handle complicated printing requirements and consistently print at a high-speed. Advanced thermal transfer/direct thermal technology offers optimum printout clarity.

In developing the TX Series, Postek worked with its customers to ascertain what their concerns and needs were for an industrial printer. Without exception "stability" was the most common concern. Due to a lack of stability, industrial printers require frequent adjustments performed by skilled professional personnel, and result in a degradation of optimum efficiency. The TX Series was designed specifically with this concern in mind. Thanks to an innovative design and exceptional craftsmanship, stability is no longer a concern with the TX Series printers.

Attain solid stability and outstanding industrial performance with Postek's TX Series
