New printer line designed to free up needed space, enhance the user experience, and simplify integration.

Torrance, CA, June 12, 2012 – Seiko Instruments USA Inc. (SII) Thermal Printer Division,, a globally recognized leader in thermal printer technology today announced the availability of its newest receipt printer line known as the Qaliber RP-E Series. The printers offer industry-leading print speeds of approximately 1.15 feet per second, to accelerate transactions or enable users to add coupons or loyalty program information. With the smallest footprint in its class, based on an innovative cube design, Qaliber printers help free up valuable real estate at the point-of-sale. A choice of standard and front-access control options provides the flexibility to slide a printer under the counter, simplifying integration.

Other important features of the Qaliber line include exceptional reliability and ease of use. Service life ratings of a minimum of 93 miles of printing and over 2 million cuts, using the anti-jamming, heavy-duty auto-cutter, ensure long-life dependability. Usability is bolstered by a unique, over-sized LED that provides immediate notification of printer status, and printer configuration is made easier with a robust suite of software utilities, drivers, and SDKs.

Units are available in “onyx” black, and “ice” white and with USB, Serial, Powered USB, or Ethernet interfaces. Command emulation is also provided to enable faster printer replacement.
