BIXOLON launches SRP-330III 3-inch thermal point of sale printer series

BIXOLON Europe GmbH has launched its SRP-330III thermal point of sale printer series for ticketing and receipting operations in the retail, hospitality and transportation sectors. The new series, an enhancement of the previous SRP-330II, offers faster printing speeds of up to 250mm/sec. compared to the previous version’s 220mm/sec. For ease of use, the printer also provides optional printer resolutions (180dpi or 203dpi), various interface options, automatic media width detection and an optional one-time or repeated alarm function for order notification. The printer’s Paper Save Mode saves up to 25% of paper per roll, helping businesses to reduce costs as well as improve sustainability. For example, it achieves this by enabling businesses to fit printing onto less paper; offering three levels of reduction when printing, allowing them to print more onto a ticket or receipt. In addition, users can choose between a two- or three-inch receipt setting, with

simple drop-in paper loading. The printer also prioritises ease of set-up through the Unified POS Utility and integrates with the customer’s existing software. The printer series’ compact design, which can be standalone or wall-mounted, makes it a popular choice for users in the retail sector for point-of-sale and lottery ticket printing, hospitality for point-of-sale and concierge service and transportation for ticketing. “In a continually challenging economic environment, businesses need effective equipment to support them in working efficiently,” says Jay Kim, managing director of BIXOLON Europe GmbH. “Faster ticket and receipt printing enable businesses to attend to more clients, and reliable equipment means less maintenance and downtime. The new SRP-330III is a cost-effective, reliable printer that offers great value compared to other comparable printers on the market. It offers all the advantages of its predecessor with the added benefit of being significantly faster.”

Canon extends Arizona flatbed printer family with Arizona 1300 Series

Canon has launched two new models in the Arizona 1300 flatbed printer series, the GTF and XTF, featuring FLOW technology, an innovative zone-free vacuum system that makes media handling easy. Extending the Arizona flatbed printer family, the Arizona 1300 series serves the growing mid-volume segment, enabling large format graphics printers and other print service providers to offer their customers an extensive range of applications for retail, signage, interior décor, packaging and industrial markets. Designed with productivity in mind, the new printers provide versatile, accurate and highly efficient multi-board and double-sided printing. With variable print speeds of up to 52.8m²/ hr, the Arizona 1300 series allows users to print pin-sharp, high-value print applications. Customers benefit from eye-catching prints on rigid or flexible media of any size up to 1.25 x 2.5 metres with the Arizona GTF or 2.5 x 3.08 metres on the Arizona XTF. Thanks to FLOW technology it is much quicker to

change media and board size, making it ideal for printing many short-run jobs spread throughout the day, allowing users to deliver commercial quality prints with higher levels of productivity. Since there are no vacuum zones, far less masking and taping is required, reducing effort, time and cost. The Arizona is designed to be low maintenance with automation enhancements that provide users with the capabilities to support industrial productivity standards and features to improve uptime. These include an updated, hands-free, printhead maintenance system that selectively restores nozzle function in seconds and a user interface updated with Advanced Image Layout Controls. The new, last-minute pre-print adjustment capabilities include trimming, multi-reference points flexibility and visualisation and modification of the print layer sequence. These controls also allow operators to make last-minute substrate choices needed to respond quickly to changes in board material
