Posted February 4, 2010

Epson TM-T88ivTM-T88IV and TM-H6000III Printers Use Significantly Less Energy than Competitive Models

Epson, a leading supplier of value-added point-of-service (POS) solutions, announced that two of its leading POS printers, the TM-T88IV and the TM-H6000III, ranked highest in energy efficiency, consuming significantly less energy than same-class competitive models. The results derive from stringent, side-by-side tests among twelve competitive products performed by Seiko Epson Corporation in 2009*.

TM-T88IV Thermal Printer

Epson’s TM-T88IV single-station thermal printer with USB interface was tested against nine same-class competitive models, including three Star, two Citizen, two Bixolon, one IBM and one Ithaca. Testing results indicate that the Epson TM-T88IV uses between 53% and 84% fewer kilowatt hours as compared to the next best performing and worst performing models tested. Results also showed that the Epson TM-T88IV, introduced in 2005, uses significantly less energy than some of the same-class printers introduced in 2009. With over five million units installed worldwide, Epson’s TM-T88-series is the best-selling thermal printer in the POS industry.

TM-H6000III Multifunction Printer

Epson’s TM-H6000III multifunction printer with USB interface was tested against three same-class competitive models, including two NCR and one IBM. Testing results indicate that the Epson TM-H6000III uses between 39% and 48% fewer kilowatt hours as compared to the next best performing and worst performing models tested. Results also showed that the Epson TM-H6000III, introduced in 2006, uses significantly less energy than newer competitors. The TM-H6000III delivers high-speed receipt and slip printing, endorsement, two-color graphics and features industry-leading MICR accuracy of over 99.9%.

Posted November 4, 2009

Epson TM-T70Unique, Easy All-Front Access Enables Flexible Placement

Today Epson, a leading supplier of value-added Point of Sale (POS) solutions, announced the availability of its TM-T70 thermal receipt printer, the industry’s only all-front-access single-station printer. The printer is designed to fit under counters and in tight spaces in specialty retail, convenience store and food service applications. With front-facing controls, front paper loading and front receipt dispensing, the TM-T70 is also a perfect fit for many kiosk applications. Its small footprint and low height, along with flexible mounting options, make the TM-T70 an ideal choice where counter space is at a premium. Unlike traditional thermal printers, the TM-T70 does not require clearance for top or side-opening, enabling it to operate in exceptionally small spaces. The TM-T70 is the first of three new Epson thermal products to be introduced over the next two quarters, and is a key component of the company’s expanding thermal printer family.

“Our retail and food service customers expressed a need for a compact thermal printer designed to fit small spaces, like under a counter,” commented Mike Helm, Director of Sales and Marketing, Epson System Device Group. “We designed the TM-T70 with our customers in mind, with easy, all-front access and the same solid reliability they expect from Epson. There’s no other printer like it.”
