Altrincham, Cheshire (PRWEB) December 19, 2008
Maxatec launches its own high speed clamshell receipt printer, the Maxatec MD-500 Impact Dot Matrix Clamshell Receipt Printer.
Andrea Percival, director of Maxa Technologies (Maxatec), said, "In the current demanding marketplace, dot matrix receipt printers need to be super efficient, fast and cost-effective, so we had to produce something exceptional to answer these needs. The MD-500 is ideal for receipt printing in the retail and hospitality sectors, and is ideal for use as a kitchen printer. It is a robust, high performance impact receipt printer which is very easy to use."
Whilst the market continues to move away from impact dot matrix printing, there is still a wide demand for this printing technology in environments where thermal printing technology is not the first choice. For example, kitchen printing is a typical application for the new MD-500 due to the warm environment, which may affect print quality or longevity of print. Other areas include dry cleaning applications and 'kitchen' environments within the take-away sector (pizza orders and Chinese take-aways for example). We feel that the product we have brought to market will match the success of the Maxatec single station thermal printers and will enhance our product offering to our reseller base.
The new MD-500 printer is fast and easy to use, with a clamshell design making the printer exceptionally easy for the user to load paper. A print speed of 5 lines per second makes the MD-500 one of the fastest impact dot matrix printers on the market today. The printer can print one, two or three ply receipts with two colour printing; black/purple and black/red. The MD-500 is compact with a neat footprint for limited desktop space, or can be wall mounted for easy access. The auto cutter is a guillotine and has a lifespan of 1,000,000 cuts, the printer memory comes standard at 1Mb SDRAM and 4Mb Flash, with an option for upgrade if required. The MD-500 also has two 24v cash drawer drivers and it supports various interfaces including: Serial (RS-232C), Parallel (Centronics, USB, Combo (USB+Serial), Ethernet and Wireless Lan. The printer comes with industry standard emulations for easy plug and play installations.
