Renowned for their extensive and intelligent packaged and modular specialist kiosk printing solutions, Star Micronics will be exhibiting their entire range at KIOSK LONDON EXPO 2011. Their printers are currently used by a number of worldwide companies from Vodafone, Whitbread’s Premier Inn, Coop Switzerland to international courier delivery companies including Schenker.
Reducing costs and environmental damage are key priorities today and Star has responded by offering a unique and diverse range of printers to help achieve these goals.
With over thirty years experience in the kiosk industry, the company specialises in tailoring solutions to meet the individual needs of customers, offering them a wide range of both flexible packaged and open frame printing solutions for kiosks. Certain system integrators have typically shied away from incorporating packaged printers into kiosks but this type of printer is now no longer just the realm of the retail outlet as it is increasingly being integrated into low volume, high value kiosk applications.
There are a number of benefits but it is primarily the simplicity and ease of use of this type of printer that is driving its greater use today. Not only is the packaged printer easier to install, service, maintain and replace but it also offers the same level of performance and reliability today as an open frame printer. Beyond this, the packaged printer can offer a wealth of additional features in terms of software tools and it is the advanced functionality of such printers that adds real value to a kiosk.
Building on its established range, the company has recently developed a number of new and interesting hardware and software innovations for the kiosk industry.
Major hotel chains including Premier Inn in the UK are benefiting from features such as a scalable raster driver which is available on both open frame and packaged kiosk printers. Whether using standard 80mm wide paper or 112mm wide paper the documents created will be printed exactly as they are displayed making this ideal for printing from any application that is designed for A4 printers, such as Internet output.
By replacing an A4 laser printer, significant cost savings in terms of consumable costs can be achieved as well as environmental benefits through reduced CO2 emissions and reduced power consumption.
