Panel Mount Printers

Thermal Panel Printers

If you make a product that needs to produce a printout,

then integrating a “Panel Printer” could be a quick and easy way to do it

What are Panel Printers? Panel printers are small, easy to mount, highly reliable and they don’t need any ink!

In simple terms, simply cut a hole in the fascia of your product and slide the panel printer in from the front. Secure it from the back with the clamp supplied, then plug-in power and data from a USB or Serial port on your product. Using Seiko’s “Easy Paper Load” system, just drop in the paper roll, close the door and tear-off the loose end against the serrated edge to be ready to print. There is a wide choice of driver software available to suit most applications.

As panel printers are loaded from the front they are particularly well suited to manned applications where trained staff use a device or instrument. They are regularly used in medical devices, diagnostic equipment, measuring instruments and building control panels. So, whether your business builds portable drug testers or exhaust analysers, if you are looking for an easy way to produce a printout, then a panel printer could be the solution for you.

Direct Thermal

Direct thermal printers are widely used in everyday life, including medical devices, self-service technology, point-of-sale, mobile applications, and more.

Direct thermal technology produces an image by applying a heating element to specially treated thermal paper. Unlike other printing formats, it operates with few moving parts and does not consume toner or ribbons. This translates into reliable long-life performance and reduced maintenance costs.

With precision engineering Seiko Instruments continues to build on direct thermal’s advantages. We offer a complete line of reliable high performance printers with flexible, small footprint designs that help streamline the integration process. Rely on dependable Seiko Instruments printers and components to tackle even the toughest thermal printing requirements.

Reliable Seiko thermal printers are the best matches with the KIOSK terminals, printing receipt and ticket and so on!

SII’s wide-variety of product line helps any printing demands on self-service terminal / ATM / ticketing applications..
