Seiko's Direct Thermal Printing Mechanisms
To Cap it All
The ultra compact printer measures just 30mm in height, including an integrated auto cutter for full and partial cuts. The 24-volt mechanisms are ideal for unattended applications such as kiosks, ticket machines, ATMs, gasoline POS and parking – where space is at premium and reliability is a must. Curved and straight paper path options provide added design flexibility, and the mechanisms can accommodate very large paper rolls and a range of paper thicknesses, from receipts to tickets. The extremely wide operating temperature range of -20° to +60°C allows for all indoor and outdoor printing applications, and despite the ultra-high printing speed of 250mm/s, printing operation is very quiet. A high-density print head of 8 dots/mm produces clear and precise print results.
The printer mounts a sliding auto cutter that has a fixed cutter blade and a movable cutter blade in one unit to improve safety. The cutter is able to make full and partial cuts with a lifetime of at least one million cuts. The removable platen unit and the accessible cutter unit allow for easy head cleaning. The printer has the ability to withstand a minimum of 150 million pulses and has an abrasion resistance of 150km. Three different interface boards (USB, serial and parallel) are available for the CAP9000 series. For trouble-free operation of the printer mechanisms in the field, the series also has an anti-static electricity function. Exposed metal parts of the printer can be connected to Frame Ground (FG) to minimise secondary discharge. The CAP9000 Series is available for two inch and three inch applications.
