The T8000 is the premier high-end thermal printer. With unmatched industrial performance, easy to use, and 100% verifiable output, the T8000 exceeds the requirements of the most demanding mission critical manufacturing and distribution operations. Highlights of the T8000 include:

Harsh Environments - Coolest in the industry

The T8000 is built to last with the ability to withstand dirt, grime, humidity, and extreme temperatures. The new T8000 is able to operate in the coldest environments of the industry, with temperatures as low as -5C (23F) for direct thermal and 5C (41F) for thermal transfer. The T8000 provides reliable printing, without the need to use a heated enclosure.

PostScript/PDF - Making history in industrial thermal technology

Presenting the industry's first industrial thermal printer with PostScript/PDF capabilities. The T8000 offers seamless connectivity of PostScript and PDF file printing for quick deployment, while supporting both 203 and 300 DPI applications in 35 different fonts. The T8000 supports the latest ERP systems and features Plug-n-Play as a native component with SAP drivers.

User-friendly - Larger color screen and Self-help Wizard

The T8000 thermal printers were designed with your convenience in mind. Featuring a new user interface with 3.4" hi-res color display panel, the T8000 thermal printers offer an advanced setup wizard with graphical icons and four navigation keys to configure and optimize your print. Browse through the QR code library included in the wizard to help you gain quick access to additional printer resources, including how-to videos.

Enterprise Performance - 40% more quality output

From the family of industrial grade experts, the T8000 thermal printers raise the bar in output performance. Utilizing a high-power ARM 9 processor, the T8000 thermal printer can print up to 14 IPS at 203 dpi - 40% more quality output. In addition, this printer series holds 512MB RAM and 128MB Flash memory with up to 1GHz clock speed to process complex labels and large print jobs.

Print Quality - Must be ODV -

100% quality barcodes is our mantra. Pairing the T8000 with the exclusivity of Printronix's Online Data Validator (ODV -) yields 100% scannable barcodes 100% of the time. The new Printronix HD print technology and intelligent heat management system feature 2x more variations per dot line, ultimately delivering finer resolution in heat applied output.

Supplies & Accessories


The best printing solution is achieved when the printer, ribbon, and labels are matched to the application requirements. The use of Genuine Printronix Thermal ribbons and labels will ensure image quality, consistent barcodes, and optimum application output required for today's production environments.


Genuine Printronix Thermal Transfer Ribbons used in a thermal printer are a critical element of the printing system. It's design, specification and selection are of the utmost importance in maintaining the integrity of the printer and the application. Printronix, with its years of experience in the design of printers and their applications, promises that you will receive the exact material required to maximize the performance of your Printronix printer.


Online Data Validation (ODV) is an option to our T8000 thermal barcode printers. This unique quality control option can inspect the barcodes on every label printed on a Printronix thermal printer. If any barcode on a label fails, the label is automatically cancelled and a replacement label is printed.


Printronix Printheads are engineered to optimize performance of your Printronix printer. Designed to be end-user replaceable; our easy to install printheads ensures a quick replacement, reducing downtime and minimizing operating costs.

Printronix now offers an optional Heavy Duty printhead designed to work best for harsh direct thermal labels applications, printers located in dirty environments, and exposed to high debris of flying particles in the atmosphere.

Available in 203 & 300 dpi options for 4", 6" and 8" formats.

Use genuine Printronix Thermal Media to double your Printhead warranty.


PrintNet Enterprise combines a fully integrated Ethernet adapter and Java-based remote management software giving users flexibility and control of their printers. This printer management tool provides increased IT resource efficiency, reduced downtime costs, maximized security, and complete compatibility across Printronix printing technologies.


The T8000 is the first in the thermal printer industry to offer the PostScript/PDF support for seamless integration and quick deployment for all printing environments. The PostSript/PDF option supports the latest ERP systems, and Plug-n-Play with native SAP Drivers.


The T8000 printers provide 802.11b/g wireless Ethernet connectivity. The wireless option comes standard with the powerful remote printer management tool, PrintNet Enterprise. This option can be factory installed or it can be installed in the field by an authorized service representative.

The T8000 printers can be configured with 802.11a/b/g/n wireless connectivity. In addition, it works in conjunction with the standard Ethernet 10/100BaseT, giving you the power of Dual NIC capability. This option can be factory installed or it can be installed in the field by an authorized service representative.


Traditionally, migrating away from twinax or coax to Ethernet eliminated valuable job control along with costly and inflexible infrastructure. Now, with TN5250, TN3270, or the latest IPDS, the choice between job control and cost reduction/flexibility is eliminated. These new options now enable Ethernet printing with the job control these mission critical applications require. Not only does this option preserve the job control, it also adds all the remote management capability of PrintNet Enterprise.


For applications that require on the spot labeling or batch production, the internal rewinder supports Peel-Off and Batch Rewind media handling modes. The printer can be ordered with a rewinder or it can be field installed at a later date by an authorized service representative.


For applications that require individual labels or groups of labels for applications such as item level part numbering or pallet labeling, the T8000 printers may be ordered with a cutter mechanism installed (for cutting tags and label liner), or the option can be installed by an authorized service representative at a later date. Once installed, the printer can be configured to automatically cut media after each or a specified number of labels is printed.


GPIO is both hardware and software. The hardware is the actual IO board to be mounted in the printer, and the software is the GPIO Manager which is part of the Printronix PrintNet Enterprise Suite remote management software. The GPIO hardware is a printed circuit board containing optically isolated inputs, outputs and relays. The GPIO software is both a printer resident GPIO event parser and a PC-based GPIO manager that allows the user to define how the general purpose IO hardware should behave for the given application.

QCMC (Quick Change Memory Card)

The T8000 now has an additional way to make your printer installation a snap. The Quick Change Memory Card (QCMC) stores your printer's configuration and network setting that allows you to easily install new printers and if a printer ever fails, allow easy change out to a new printer by your operator.
