Meto Model 5000 Thermal Label Printer

Your Portable and Affordable Printing Solution

With the METO Model 5000 portable thermal transfer printer you can print high quality bar code labels and tags with the convenience of a stand-alone system. Since the 5000 runs under its own operating system, you can freely design and edit media formats without an external PC. Its full-size alphanumeric keyboard allows the creation of an unlimited variety of label formats and construction of a database of label references. All files are stored internally or on a credit card sized "Memcard," available in 128K, 256K or 512K sizes.
