Using the Label Dispenser Option

Use the label dispenser option to print a label and have the backing material (liner/web) automatically removed. When printing multiple labels, removing the dispensed (peeled) label can trigger the printer to print and dispense the next label.
  • For printers with the display option, use the
    Label Position
    Collection Method
  • Set Media Handling to Peel-Off in the printer driver
  • Use the Zebra Setup Utility
    Configure Printer Settings
  • Send the ZPL programming commands to the printer.
When programming in ZPL, you can use the command sequences shown below to configure the printer to use the dispenser option:
  1. Load your labels into the printer. Close the printer and press the
    button until a minimum of 100 millimeters or 4 inches of exposed labels exit the printer. You can leave the labels on the liner.
  2. Lift the liner over the top of the printer. Pull the gold latch in the center of the dispenser door away from the printer and the door opens.
  3. Insert the label liner between the dispenser door and the printer body.
  4. Close the dispenser door while pulling the end of the label liner tight.
  5. Press and release the
    (Advance) button one or more times until a label gets presented for removal.
  6. During the print job, the printer peels off the backing and presents a single label. Take the label from the printer to allow the printer to print the next label.
If you did not activate the label taken sensor to detect the removal of the dispensed (peeled and presented for removal) label with software commands, the printed labels will stack and may bind the mechanism.
