MKHP4 MiniKey (2”) – Thermal Inkjet Printer


Compact, powerful and ideal for packaging lines, this is a very cost-efficient printer with speeds of up to 300 m/min (984 ft/min) at 300 x 150 dpi.

The MKHP4 MiniKey has an integrated keyboard and icon based colour display which runs with a 1” printhead mounted directly on the controller, and up to a 1” printhead mounted remotely. Boasting an Ethernet, USB and serial connection, jobs can be made directly on the unit, or transferred via USB or a network connection to the printer.

The unit can print barcodes with variable content, counters, date/time, fixed text, shift codes and graphics as well as text from a simple database in CSV-format.


Technology you can depend upon

The MiniKey printer is based upon reliable HP TIJ 2.5 technology, offering consistent, high quality, fast printing. The user-interface is so easy to use, that it requires no training (or extremely little!)

A truly ‘All-In-One’ printer The MiniKey can be used ‘out of the box’. Simply insert an ink cartridge in the head, connect to power and print by pushing a button. With a trouble free user interface and a 320×240 pixel graphical colour display showing intuitive icons, you get a clear understanding when choosing functions from the keyboard.


Minikey print flexibility

The standard unit comes with a ½” printhead and built-in product sensor, however it can control up to a 2″ print height.

Available with an integrated 1- or 2-pen printhead mounted on the side of the unit, or if additional print height is required the MiniKey can be delivered with remote printheads of 1 or 2 pens. The two printheads of course enable double-sided printing.


Simple, powerful software

The software bundled is incredibly easy to use, and features advanced administrator options so a flexible user level management can be setup, guaranteeing that correct data is printed.

The controller is preloaded with different menu languages, with 50 fonts, as well as localized month and day names, allowing you to print in real-time:

  • Shift codes
  • Counters
  • Graphics
  • Text (alphanumerical)
  • Date & time (real-time & adjusted)
  • Linear & 2d barcodes*
  • Windows fonts
