Seiko Rugged Mobile Thermal Printer Series – Stylish and easy to operate.

Rugged and Reliable Printing

With the ability to withstand multiple drops from up to 6.6 feet (2 meters), the MP-A40 Series Mobile Printers from Seiko are known for their highest level print speeds currently available on the market. Imagine being able to print high-resolution receipts at 100 mm per second! What’s more is after several tests performed in our product lab, the MP-A40 mobile printer was able to perform at 100% after multiple drops.

Simple Operation, Stylish Design

With up to a 4-inch paper width, and weighing 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 an easy drop-in paper setting and easy access button, the printers offer a smart and robust design that easily fit 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 offer compatibility with the latest operating systems including Windows, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10. There is also SDK availability for both Android and Windows CE print class libraries for added mobility. Other option parts include AC adapter, battery pack, AC cable, battery charger (for both single and quad battery), car charger and USB cable. The printers also offer auto-detection Bluetooth interface and Wi-Fi capabilities, providing added value and easy transition from cable to wireless communications.
