Zebra's New Z6M(TM) OFFERS Wide Label Printing and ZebraLink(TM) Remote Printer Management

Apr 23, 2001, 01:00 ET from Zebra Technologies Corporation

   VERNON HILLS, Ill., April 23 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- Zebra
 Technologies Corporation (Nasdaq:   ZBRA), the worldwide leader in bar code
 printing, today introduced the metal Z6M(TM) bar code label printer.  This new
 Web- and network-ready Z Series thermal printer accommodates single or
 multiple-up labels up to 6.6 inches in width.  The rugged Z6M printer includes
 ZebraLink(TM), the real-time, remote printer management tool that is helping
 companies save money by centralizing IT control over their networked Zebra
 printers while simultaneously reducing printer downtime at the point of
 application.
     "Combining the Z6M's wide width capacity with Zebra's advanced, on-board
 technology and print reliability make the Z6M an exceptional value at a list
 price of only US$2,995," said Joseph Demers, Z Series product manager.
 "With die-cast metal construction for a lifetime of precision performance,
 durable metal housing, and the versatility of ZebraLink, the Z6M is the second
 metal Z Series printer to offer more standard features per dollar than any
 other printers in their class."
     Settings for the easy-to-use Z6M printer can be adjusted directly from the
 unit's LCD control panel or from a central, remote location using the
 printer's ZebraLink WebView(TM) utility, an optional ZebraNet PrintServer II,
 and any networked computer or mobile device.
     In addition, the ZebraLink Alert feature enables the printer to
 automatically notify one or more individuals via email, pager, cell phone, PDA
 or any text-capable wired or wireless device.  "Instant Alert messaging
 decreases downtime between print jobs or when media needs to be replaced,"
 explained Demers.  "Especially in high volume applications, reacting quickly
 translates into huge savings for our customers."
     The Z6M with ZebraLink maximizes productivity in other ways, too.
 Standard 4" x 6" compliance labels output 50% faster when rotated to print
 6" x 4".  The wider print width also means the Z6M can print several narrow
 labels simultaneously, or the larger labels often used for oversized products
 and pallet/drum labeling applications.
     In addition to its WebView and Alert features, ZebraLink enables the Z6M
 to emulate non-Zebra printers and print from non-Zebra-specific data sources.
 It also gives the Z6M the ability to drive peripheral devices without the need
 for a separate computer.  Keyboard display units, handheld scanners and weigh
 scales provide added flexibility.  "The versatility of this printer, combined
 with its durability and industry-leading connectivity, makes the new Z6M a
 great value," said Demers.
     The Z6M is available through authorized Zebra resellers, distributors and
 systems integrators. Additional information is available at www.zebra.com/z6m,
 or by calling Zebra at 800-423-0442.
     Zebra Technologies Corporation manufactures and distributes Zebra-brand
 on-demand thermal bar code label printers and Eltron(R)-brand instant-issuance
 plastic card printers used in automatic identification, personalization and
 security applications worldwide.  The company, with an installed base of two
 million printers, also offers software and related supplies, including more
 than 1,000 label and ribbon combinations.  Zebra's customers include more than
 70 percent of the FORTUNE 500.  Information about Zebra bar code products and
