High speed 24VDC embedded printer for medical applications

Official distributor for Seiko Instruments’ printer mechanisms and portable printers, BVM, has announced the CAPM327, a 24VDC high-speed rugged thermal print and cut unit optimised for use in ticketing and vending machines, receipt printing, lottery terminals, ATMs or other industrial, retail or medical applications.

Two versions are available: for Point-of-Sale receipt printers and similar uses, the ‘Easy Load’ version with a removable thermal head that enables simple drop-in roll replacement. The ‘Auto Load’ model has a hinged thermal head assembly for embedded designs such as kiosk and ticketing machines and an optical sensor that automatically initiates replacement paper loading.

Both versions offer print speeds of 300mm/s on standard 58, 60, 80 and 83mm wide paper up to 90 micron thickness; the thick paper model prints at 280mm/s on paper up to 150 micron thick. The integral cutter has a hardened V-shaped blade specified to two million operations of either complete or partial cuts that leave a small centre point attached between receipts.

The units feature an all-metal body, powerful motors and wide gears throughout to ensure reliability. They are designed to output more than 1.3 million x 150mm receipts with up to 640 dots/line. Furthermore, 16 x 8, 16 x 16, 24 x 12 and 24 x 24 characters are supported, resolution is eight dots/mm.
