Fujitsu Components Europe B.V. recently released a high speed, battery powered 4-inch thermal printer mechanism that is designed to impress.
It handles the conflicting demands of high performance and low cost solutions in one perfect compact design. The FTP-648MCL103/104 is suitable for applications such as warehousing, POS, industrial, medical, scientific instrumentation and portable label printing.
The FTP-648MCL103/104 series thermal printers effortlessly combine 50mm/sec print speed and 8 dot/mm 210 dpi resolution, with significantly improved high quality output for crystal clear barcodes, graphics and text and yet remains barely audible. With its diminutive size of 20.5mm (H) x 139.5mm (W) x 40.5mm (D) and weighing in at 160g the printer is suitable for any OEM design.
The printer handles paper stock 80-115 microns thick in the curved paper path and 80-150 microns in the straight paper path - up to 114mm maximum width. Fujitsu has rated the print head life at 100 million pulses or 50km of paper. The printer has an operating temperature range of -25C to +70C and a platen life of 5,000 cycles.
The printer features a lock lever-releasable, detachable platen that simplifies paper loading and reduces those periodic downtimes for necessary maintenance.
Designed for flexibility and reliability, both front and bottom paper insertion paths are offered as standard.
