Zebra Technologies licenses NCR’s two-sided thermal printer IP

DULUTH, GeorgiaZebra Technologies Corporation (Nasdaq: ZBRA) has signed an agreement to license two-sided thermal printer intellectual property (IP) from NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR). This license provides Zebra worldwide access to NCR’s portfolio of patented two-sided thermal printer technology.

“Integrating NCR’s two-sided thermal printing technology into our existing kiosk product line will enable Zebra to fulfill the growing demand we see for 2-sided printing applications,” said Mike Terzich, senior vice president, Zebra Technologies. “Our customers have come to expect innovative print technologies from the company Zebra, and NCR’s technology should help our customers realize greater print efficiency and reduced paper consumption.”

NCR’s 2STTM two-sided printing technology improves the efficiency of the printing process by allowing simultaneous printing on both the front and back side of a receipt or other media.  By using less paper, it also helps reduce environmental impact while optimizing productivity and lowering costs.

“Zebra is one of the great innovators in technology to improve business efficiencies, and we are glad that they have chosen NCR’s intellectual property to help strengthen the value of their own printing technologies,” said Dan Bogan, senior vice president and general manager of NCR Consumables Solutions, a leading provider of printer consumables.
