Datamax-O'Neil M-Class

M-Class Barcode Printers


Datamax M-Class printers are rugged, sturdy printers developed for use in bar coding applications such as healthcare, light manufacturing, inventory and retail SKU management where space, reliability and performance are the motivating factors. The M-Class is designed based on elements borrowed from the industry-leading Datamax I-Class printers, featuring a die-cast aluminum chassis to enhance durability and performance. The printer's design allows for field installable options and quick media changes for users functioning in mission-critical printing capabilities. The compact, modular design enables usage in environments with limited space and offers low total cost of ownership. Options such as Thermal Transfer, Internal Rewind, Peel and Present and a Cutter are user-installable and removable. Additionally basic 1D label design software is available free of charge for the M-Class Mark II.
