For the first time, Microcom is bringing the advantages of linerless printing to self-service kiosks. The 238ML has a special coated paper pathway that allows linerless material to be used. Not only is this beneficial to the environment, but it also saves money by increasing the number of labels/tags per roll and increasing the amount of time needed between roll changes. The 238ML is compact enough to be integrated into any existing kiosk solution and powerful enough to provide years of reliable performance. It features a heavy duty cutter for stock up to 13 mils thick and a high torque motor to pull media rolls up to 10 inches in diameter.
