Zebra HC100 Wristband Printer

A perfect fit for your healthcare environment

Ideal for patient identification in hospitals and outpatient clinics, the HC100 allows you to print patient information and all industry standard one and two-dimensional barcode symbologies directly onto Zebra’s Z-Band direct thermal wristbands - enabling hospital staff to process patient admissions quickly and safely. The wipeable plastic is designed to withstand a variety of disinfectants, chemicals and cleaning solutions, making the HC100 a perfect fit for your healthcare environment.

There’s also minimal training required! Pop the wristband cartridge into the
printer and the HC100 automatically detects the wristband size, immediately calibrates, and prints. You get long-lasting wristbands with barcodes that remain scannable for longer than the average patient stay. When the cartridges are empty, return them for recycling.
