Question about Datamax M-Class Thermal Printer

Datamax M-4206 printing too slow

My Datamax M-4206 prints reliably, but very slowly (1 label every 2-4 seconds).
I'm printing through a program called LabelMatrix and would love to get the printing to speed up!

Hello,

The way you can do this is to use Datamax fonts in your LabelMatrix program instead of truetype fonts like arial or times new roman. After making this change, do a test print and see if print improves. Another possible solution is use USB instead of Parallel cable (if you're not using it already).

We have just gone live on sage 1000 and are trying to print labels designed in sage paperless to send to our Datamax m-4206. Labels print but we cannot get the information to line up on the labels. Is...


This can be caused by either the software, or the printer's electronic or mechanical settings. Software will usually override the printer settings for print speed, temperature, label dimensions, etc. In order to fully diagnose, I would need to know if the print is too high, too low, too far left or right, or skipping a label, etc.

Allegro2 Print Too Slow (25 seconds send from Windows XP)


miaharoon: Printing via Windows driver it's too long time because the driver sent a lot data to printer. Also the print speed via serial port it's slow. Inside driver, install Datamax printer fonts and barcode fonts to use it in Windows programs.
