Printronix LP654C

The Printronix LP654C is the world’s smallest industrial-grade A4 colour printer ready to perform at high-speed with high-quality colour. The device prints 35 ppm and can manage media weight up to 256 gsm, and up to 1.32 m in length. The LP654C’s innovative space-saving technology includes full front access, allowing the printer to fit and operate in a very tight space, only requiring 2cm space around the sides. Developed with a focus on high reliability and built with the extensive use of high-quality components in place of plastic, this is the most robust printer in its class.


Printronix LP844C

The Printronix LP844C is the smallest A3 colour printer in the world with a print speed of 36 ppm and is a highly dependable workhorse. The LP844C can print media weights up to 256 gsm and up to 29.7 cm x 132.1cm. Separate toners and long-life drums enable a high-duty cycle and maximum use of consumables ensuring the printer keeps printing and printing, making it ideal for our industrial customers requiring high volumes and high-quality color coverage. In addition to regular paper, the printers will work on a wide variety of speciality media like magnetic media, synthetic paper, and indoor or outdoor quality label stock with media weights up to 256 gsm and up to 132.1cm long.

DICOM dongle for printers

The NanoRIP DICOM dongle is a hardware accessory that enables Printronix printers, such as the LP654C and LP844C, to print medical images directly from DICOM devices without additional software. It supports high-quality colour and grayscale outputs on various media, including blue transparency film, making it suitable for medical use. The dongle allows the customisation of print settings and formats through a web interface, offering a cost-effective alternative to specialized medical imagers​​​.

Black & White X-rays

Our DICOM printers are specifically designed to efficiently produce high-quality black and white X-rays. These printers utilize advanced imaging technology that accurately captures the detailed contrasts and densities found in X-ray images, essential for medical diagnostics and patient care. The printers are fully compatible with DICOM standards, ensuring seamless integration with medical imaging equipment. This capability supports medical professionals in their diagnostic processes by providing clear, detailed prints that highlight subtle nuances necessary for accurate assessments and treatments.

CT Scans

Our DICOM printers are adept at printing CT scans, delivering the precision required for medical imaging. They handle the high-resolution details and complex grayscale variations characteristic of CT images, ensuring that all critical information is accurately represented. These printers support the DICOM standard, which guarantees compatibility with CT imaging systems and streamlines the workflow in medical environments. By providing clear, precise prints of CT scans, our printers assist healthcare professionals in diagnosing and planning treatments effectively, making them an invaluable tool in medical settings.

MRI Scans

Our DICOM printers excel in printing MRI scans, offering high-definition, detailed outputs that are crucial for medical diagnosis and patient management. These printers are equipped to handle the nuanced grayscale of MRI images, ensuring that all anatomical structures and abnormalities are distinctly visible. With full compliance to DICOM standards, our printers seamlessly integrate with MRI systems to streamline medical workflows. This capability allows healthcare providers to obtain immediate physical copies of MRI scans, facilitating better communication and faster decision-making in clinical settings.

Colour CT Scans

Colour CT scans, or "colour-coded" CT scans, are a way to visually enhance computed tomography (CT) images using colour to highlight specific features. Traditional CT scans produce images in grayscale, where the different shades of grey represent different densities and types of tissues. In colour CT scans, colours are assigned to these densities to make the images easier to read and interpret.


Our DICOM printers are specifically configured to produce high-quality prints of ultrasound images. These printers accurately render the fine details and varying shades of ultrasound scans, which are crucial for evaluating soft tissues and fluid movements within the body. Thanks to their compatibility with the DICOM standard, they ensure seamless integration with ultrasound equipment, enhancing the efficiency of medical imaging workflows. This functionality is particularly valuable in obstetrics and other medical fields, where quick access to printed ultrasound images supports thorough reviews and consultations, aiding in diagnosis and patient care.

Nuclear Medicine

Our DICOM printers are well-equipped to handle the specialized requirements of printing nuclear medicine images. These printers ensure that the distinct colourations and subtle gradients, typical of nuclear medicine scans, are vividly and accurately reproduced. Adhering to DICOM standards, they integrate smoothly with nuclear medicine imaging systems, facilitating a streamlined process from scan to print. This capability is essential for nuclear medicine, where the detailed visualization of radioactive distributions within the body aids in diagnostics, treatment planning, and monitoring response to therapy. By providing clear, precise prints, our printers assist healthcare professionals in delivering informed patient care with confidence.
