Solid 166E

Laser printer Solid Microplex 166E high performance continuous paper with Flash Fusing technology 



The Solid 166E impresses with its versatility, print quality and its capacity worthy of an industrial laser printer.


All this at a really low price , its high speed combined with a high resolution, the diverse use of materials in continuous format, the fusion of the cold-toner Flash Fusing and the low cost per page make this printer the best option for users. operators that need a low cost solution for large print volumes.

Flexible use for many different applications:

  • demanding media such as PE, PVC, etc.
  • Batch label printing
  • ticket printing, address labels (Cheshire)
  • commercial documents (lists, invoices, delivery notes, ...)
  • easy adaptation to SAP, AS / 400 (IPDS), Windows, ...

Its cold fusion technology through xenon-Flash lamps allows printing on heat-sensitive documents such as envelopes, labels, plastics, PVC, documents with different thicknesses or with glues or other chemical components and even cardboards up to 204 g / m² thick without any problem.

A synchronized paper stacker and cutter comes standard with the printer, making the Solid 166E a high-performance printing solution by separating and stacking unattended print batches.

The Solid 166E is compatible with the vast majority of emulations or printer languages, the solid 166E is a perfect substitute for obsolete Printronix L5XXX printers such as L5020, L5031, L5535, L7032 or the OCÉ VarioStream 7120 and 7110 models, Infoprint 4000 or NIPPSON.
