ICC is proud to offer two-color thermal transfer label and barcode printers to help chemical manufacturers comply with GHS labeling regulations.

Whether you are printing small container labels or drum labels
containing the shipping symbols, we have a printer to meet your needs. These printers are extremely reliable and offer the flexibility of using a variety of cost effective pressure sensitive paper or synthetic materials that meet IMDG requirements for shipping dangerous goods by sea.

Two Color Label Printer Models

Low Cost per Label with Ribbon Saver

The cab series of printers come standard with built in ribbon saver that automatically stops the one of the ribbons from moving when nothing is being printed This is particularly important when printing the red GHS pictograms on part of a larger label.


For driver information, manuals and other documentation see cab's website.

1. Large graphic display

White backlight guarantees optimal legibility.

5. Solid, buckling resistant metal chassis

It is made of die-cast aluminum. All devices are assembled to it.

2. Ribbon retainer

The three-part tightening axles allow a fast and easy ribbon exchange.

6. Roll holder

The swing lever and the integrated brake make sure that the labels are unwound with constant tension.

3. Easy adjustment

The printheads are pressed down with plungers. One is mounted stationary at the inner surface, the other one is pushed to the right label margin.

7. Ribbon saver for printhead 1

This process avoids smudging printing when pulling back labels after the printing process. Ribbon is saved when large labels with a small printed area are required.

4. Peripheral connection

All additional modules such as stacker and cutter are easily adjustable. All peripheral devices can be attached to the printer with two adapters and affixed with one screw in a matter of seconds.
