Zebra Printer 170xi4 Mimimizes Downtime, Speeds Label Printing

When downtime is not an option, the Zebra 170xi4 industrial label printer can drive up productivity in high-volume environments. It features faster print times, super-quick deployment, and diagnostic tools to head off repairs.

The Zebra 170xi4 prints up to 40 percent faster, covering up to 12 inches per second at 203 dpi for thermal transfer or direct thermal printing. This is one of the fastest label printing speeds in the market, and it can significantly increase productivity in batch printing and print-and-apply lines.


Unlike some competing printers in the marketplace, the Zebra 170xi4 can be used to address a wide range of labeling applications.

Speed is also enhanced by:

  • Fast processing and throughput by a 32-bit 133 Mhz RISC processor
  • Storage of more label formats, fonts, and graphics with 16 MB of SDRAM, including 8 MB of user-available non-volatile memory storage for downloadable objects
  • Less downtime for print head replacement, thanks to a print head mechanism constructed of durable metal
  • A wireless connectivity option that allows for physical reconfiguration of operations without moving cables

Built to last in tough environments

Designed to work non-stop, all day, and every day, the Zebra 170xi4 also features:

  • Early warning systems to help quickly identify and resolve printer issues, such as ribbon changes, media changes, and print head servicing
  • Rugged, 12-gauge steel housing
  • Metal interior components
  • Enclosed operating mechanisms to block out dust and dirt
  • Tolerance to operate in a wide range of temperatures and humidity levels

Unlike some competing printers in the marketplace, the Zebra 170xi4 can be used to address a wide range of labeling applications:

  • Paper, specialty labels, and tag stocks
  • Wide range of media thicknesses
  • Specialty labels such as tiny component labels, compliance labels, wide-web labels, and more

Because of this wide range of labeling options, the Zebra 170xi4 can be used for:

  • Asset management
  • Cross docking
  • Inventory management
  • Receiving and shipping
  • Work-in-process tracking
  • Compliance labeling
  • Order labeling
  • Quality control
  • Industries including government, manufacturing, consumer goods, transportation, and logistics

Demystifying the label printer with user-friendly options

The printer’s user-friendly design makes operations simple to learn, thanks to several standard features built in by Zebra:

  • A clear media side door allows for easy monitoring of supplies usage without opening the printer or turning it off
  • A full-function front panel and large, multilingual, back-lit LCD display provide easy-to-see menus and commands
  • Wizards guide the user through configuration, while the mirror features can automatically retrieve user-defined configurations such as files, formats, graphics, and firmware
  • Menus can be designed and customized, limiting the number of options a user must scroll through to find the information they need
  • Multiple profiles can be stored on one printer and switched between as needed
