Epson updates its market leading TM-T88 printer with more speed and reliability

March 2006

Epson has released the next generation of its best selling TM-T88 series thermal Point of Sale printer, the TM-T88IV.

Epson's Business Systems Division Manager Jason Whiley, said that with more than four million units shipped world wide to date, Epson's TM-T88 series printers are the most popular thermal printers in high-volume retail and food service environments today.

"With the new TM-T88IV we have increased the speed and reliability of a product that's already number one in the retail and hospitality industries. As a result existing TM-T88III customers have a drop-in replacement with greater printing performance and reliability at the same price," Mr Whiley said.

"And new customers will gain the most reliable retail and hospitality printer on the market with the printing performance to withstand the busiest and harshest environments."

Designed to print graphical receipts without sacrificing printing performance, the TM-T88IV prints a full 25% faster than the TM-T88III and delivers uniform print speed regardless of receipt complexity.

With improved reliability and ease of use features including improved case design for spill resistance and drop-in paper loading, the TM-T88IV is a solid choice for any retail or hospitality environment.

TM-T88IV Features:

High-speed Two-Colour Text and Graphics Printing:
To speed customer transactions without sacrificing performance, the TM-T88IV prints high-speed text and graphics at a consistent speed of up to 200mm per second, 25% faster than the industry-leading TM-T88III. Two-colour thermal printing can be used to highlight logos, graphics or product specific information.

Small Footprint and Mounting Options:
The TM-T88IV has a small footprint saving on precious counter space, or can be combined with a wall mounting option for store and kitchen applications.

Enhanced Features for Reliability:
The paper cover design on the TM-T88IV has been improved to protect from common spills. An integrated maintenance counter maintains work rate information on the unit, enabling implementation of preventative maintenance programs.

Seamless Integration:
The TM-T88IV has the same external dimensions as the TM-T88III for quick, drop-in replacement. With a broad array of interface options, including serial, parallel, USB, Ethernet, and wireless, the TM-T88IV is compatible with today's best-of-breed and component-based systems.
