Toshiba B-EX4-T1

The faster, smaller footprint sibling of the flag-ship B-EX6 Series; the B-EX4 is built for high-speed, high quality, large volume printing in industrial conditions.



Toshiba has built a reputation in reducing the total cost of ownership on any of its products and the B-EX4 continues this with low energy use, ribbon save technology and user replaceable print heads.

The B-EX4 was designed from the ground-up to be a leading high-speed / high-volume printer, maxing out at 14ips at retail-quality resolution.
The fastest Toshiba industrial printer currently available.

Change Your Own Print Heads Without an Engineer

Snap-in printhead and platen rollers allow you to perform routine maintenance without the need for a service engineer saving both time and money.
