Rs 232

There is a Siemens function block for RS232 communication which I don't have ANYMORE.
I'm not sure if you can Print directly or you need a PC or TS adapter.
I would buy a serial card anyway. The distributor should have that FB and give it for free. If you need fonts you'll get lots of white hair and you need the printer manufacturers' communication protocol. I did it about 10-11 years ago for a dot matrix with a serial card but it was not worth the money (spent a week on it due to fonts). The easiest way is to get a profibus industrial printer $1500.
