Fujitsu Releases Compact OEM Thermal Printer Mechanism for Ultra-Fast, Thick Ticket and Label Output



Sunnyvale, CA - Fujitsu Components America, Inc. today added an ultra high-speed, compact, 3-inch thermal printer mechanism for embedded OEM designs. The new printer enhances throughput in applications that demand fast and reliable ticket and label output, such as kiosks, label and ticket-issuing machines, barcode equipment, and medical instrumentation.

The new FTP-63AMCL101/111/301/311 printer series delivers a 250mm/sec print speed, which is among the highest in the industry. Its operating life is rated for a minimum of 150km total printing and 150 million pulses to ensure long-term reliability. The available, full-cut rotary cutter has a life of 1.5 million cuts. Measuring 118.4W x 54D x 30H mm, the printer with the cutter has a compact form factor that addresses shrinking product designs.

The printer accommodates thick paper stock ranging from 80-85mm wide and 60-220 micrometers thick. It is capable of printing a variety of text, characters, graphics, international fonts, and 2D barcodes such as QR, Maxi and PDF417. Compatible Windows® drivers are available for download from the website.

Designed to function reliably in both indoor and outdoor applications, the printer has an extended operating temperature range of -20 to +70 degrees C. Additionally, its die-cast frame provides durability, support, protects against ESD, shock and vibration, and also functions as a heat sink.

The printer features Fujitsu's patented, Easy Load Mechanism platen release to simplify paper roll loading. It also gives full access to the print head for maintenance or to clear paper jams. Integrated sensors detect paper out/black mark, abnormal head temperatures and motor over-current protection to minimize interruptions and maximize printer uptime.

The RoHS-compliant FTP-63AMCL101/111/301/311-R printer series is available immediately. It is priced at $96 in 1,000-piece quantities for a printer mechanism. With cutter configuration the price is $176. Delivery is stock to 14 weeks ARO. USB 2.0 and Serial RS-232C interface boards are also available.
