Star Micronics Introduces TSP143GT Gray Receipt Printer

Posted November 3, 2010

Star Micronics is answering the call of its customers with the introduction of the TSP143GT Gray. The new receipt printer option enables customers to leverage the high-speed GT version of the successful TSP100 series in Star’s standard Gray color, complementing the current GT color options of Ice White and Piano Black.

“Star Micronics introduced the TSP143GT Gray in direct response to feedback we received from our channel partners,” said Christophe Naasz, Director of Marketing for Star Micronics America. “Our reseller and software developer partners were asking for a faster version of our popular TSP100 series printer and to provide the current aesthetically pleasing and consistent POS system look. The addition of the GT Gray color offers more flexibility by enabling them to offer a receipt printer that matches the popular charcoal gray color used in many modern POS system setups.”

The TSP143GT Gray is fully compatible with the existing models and offers the same TSP100 GT benefits, including a high-speed print rate of 45 receipts per minute and the futurePRNT receipt design software that originally helped to define the GT series. The printer also features a standard USB interface, an internal power supply, drivers and software and a user-friendly “plug and play” installation.

The TSP143GT Gray comes with a 3-year full warranty with the first year featuring a complimentary Swap-A-Star. The TSP143GT is eligible for Star’s Extend-A-Star and Swap-A-Star enhanced service programs in the United States and Canada.

Epson TM-T88iv ReStick Improves Circulation Desk Hold Labeling in Ten Public Libraries

Posted October 27, 2010

Epson TM-T88ivSolution Increases Productivity, Streamlines Books on Hold Labeling Process

The Epson TM-T88iv ReStick thermal printer is now being used in ten public libraries to improve the circulation desk book reservation process. The Epson solution has increased productivity due to less staffing required and fewer hours spent emptying and checking in boxes from other libraries to accommodate customer hold requests.

Libraries have traditionally utilized a cumbersome, manual book reservation process involving rubber bands, scrap paper, masking tape and handwritten notes. This error-prone, outdated method has been updated with the Epson TM-T88 ReStick solution, which allows staff to print labels which can be applied to books without any damage or sticky residue. Using the ReStick solution has streamlined the book reservation process, cut back staffing requirements and increased overall productivity at circulation desks.

New Microscan MINI Hawk imager with 3 Megapixel sensor for Reading Direct Part Marks

Posted October 27, 2010

Microscan announces a new three megapixel resolution configuration in the popular MINI Hawk series of compact direct part mark (DPM) imagers. The powerful new three megapixel MINI Hawk is the smallest and highest performance autofocus imager in its class for reading small DPM marks straight out of the box.

This MINI Hawk is specifically designed for reading small 2D direct part marks widely used in medical device and electronics manufacturing industries. Electronic components such as printed circuit boards (PCBs) typically have very little space to add barcodes for traceability. Small 2D Data Matrix codes are ideal for this type of application; however they require a product with enhanced DPM reading capabilities to capture this critical data. The fully integrated design of the MINI Hawk makes it easy for electronics and other manufacturers and their suppliers to read these codes. Also available in high speed and high resolution configurations, the imager can also consistently read symbols that are damaged, distorted or otherwise challenging due to direct part marking.
