Adjusting the Printhead Pressure on your Intermec PX4i

The pressure of the thermal printhead against the direct thermal media is factory-adjusted. But, you may need to adjust the printhead pressure to accommodate thicker or thinner media.

To adjust the printhead pressure

  • Turn the adjustment knob clockwise for more pressure and a darker printout (+) or counter-clockwise for less pressure (-) and a lighter printout.

  • Print test labels to check the print quality.

To return the printhead pressure to the factory default setting

  • Tighten the knob (+) as much as you can, and then loosen it (-) four full turns.
