Postek C168 Series (TT) Thermal Transfer Barcode Label Printer



  • Reflective & transmissive sensors flexibly recognize various kinds of media
  • Free media stand More capacity = Less downtime
  • Bearings reduce wear and friction and ensure durability
  • Industrial class stepping motor Extra quality = Zero faults


Printing flexibility with a wide selection of media

Long-lasting durability and ease of use, plus affordability are the hallmarks of the C168 Series compact printer. The direct thermal and thermal transfer printing modes and an adjustable Reflective Media Sensor affords users a wide range of media choices and printing flexibility.


Both reflective & transmissive sensors promote great flexibility to print on most types of labels including continuous, labels with gaps, labels with marks and even labels with holes.

The Free External Media stand easily increases the media capacity fourfold, saving you time on changing the media, which greatly enhances efficiency. All rotating parts are supported by ball bearings or fixed bearings, thereby eliminating wear caused from direct contact with plastic. C168 is manufactured with the Industrial Class Stepping Motor used on our commercial models, ensuring strong power and stable performance.
