Seiko Instruments’ Thermal Printer Division, a globally recognized leader in thermal printer technology, has unveiled the new rugged and fast printing mobile printer line - MP-A40 Series. The printer, which features the ability to withstand multiple drops from up to 6.6 feet, also boasts the highest level of print speeds currently available on the market at 100mm/second.
With up to a 4-inch paper width, and weighing just a little more than 1.5 pounds, the MP-A40 Series mobile printers are built tough—but that doesn’t mean they lack in style or simplicity. With intuitive drop-in paper loading and easy access button, the printers offer a smart and robust design that fits into the palm of your hand, or belt clip; a small carry-on case offers the option of over-the-shoulder transport.
The MP-A40 Series Mobile Printers are unique in that they are ergonomically designed to be used in “front-of-house” verticals like retail and hospitality, but also have the ruggedness and strength for usage in areas such as direct-store-delivery, warehousing and logistics, field service, and public utilities.
Other important features of the new mobile printer line include compatibility with the latest operating systems, including Windows 10, as well as SDK availability for both Android and Windows CE print class libraries for added mobility. The printer also offers auto-detection Bluetooth interface and Wi-Fi capabilities, providing added value and easy transition from cable to wireless communications.
“At a time when today’s end users are looking to further mobilize their business processes, it was only natural that the MP-A40 mobile printer line was designed with these trends in mind. In addition, our partners are realizing the demand from their customers for this technology, which is something that was at top of mind during our research and development process,” said Kaz Onishi, Vice President, Seiko Instruments USA.
