Seiko Instruments New Receipt Printer Combines Reliability, Value, and Ease of Use

Torrance, CA, April 13, 2010 – Seiko Instruments USA Inc. (SIU) Thermal Printer Division,, a globally recognized leader in thermal printer technology, today announced availability of a new value-priced point-of-sale (POS) printer. The RP-B10 direct thermal receipt printer combines space saving design with the performance, reliability, and ease of use demanded by high-volume retail and hospitality environments. The exceptionally durable RP-B10 printer outputs 2-inch and 3-inch wide, 203 dpi receipts at 200 mm/second, providing a minimum 62 miles (100 km) print out and a mean time between failure (MTBF) of 360,000 hours. In addition, the heavy-duty anti-locking and auto-recovering cutter design is rated for a minimum 1.5 million cuts.

“The new RP-B10 POS receipt printer provides outstanding reliability and ease of use, and offers tremendous value for customers looking for a fast return on their investment,” said Kaz Onishi, Vice President, Seiko Instruments USA. “Our development teams are working diligently to meet evolving customer engagement requirements, including traditional POS, self-service, and mobility solutions. The addition of the RP-B10 receipt printer to the Seiko Instruments lineup helps satisfy the full range of customer engagement needs.”

Measuring 5.9″ (150mm) wide x 7.28″ (185mm) high x 5.49″ (139.5mm) wide, the small-format RP-B10 offers standard-, vertical-, and wall-mount options and a choice of USB and Serial interfaces. Driver software for Windows® and OPOS (Windows® XP/Vista), a comprehensive software development kit (SDK), and a wide array of utilities for rapid printer configuration, adding logo, coupons, or watermark, printing in grayscale, monitoring, and more, significantly enhance integration flexibility.

The RP-B10 is available with black or white casing and comes with a 3-year Seiko Instruments AssurePrint warranty as standard. The AssurePrint program provides additional options to extend the base warranty and to provide 24-hour printer replacement service.
