Star Micronics Releases the Fast, Wide Format TSP847II AirPrint Thermal Printer

The release comes one year after Star Micronics unveiled the first-ever AirPrint certified receipt printer

Somerset, NJ – March 14, 2019 – Always leading—always innovating, Star Micronics, a leading manufacturer of mobile, point of sale (POS), and customer engagement technologies, is excited to announce the addition of the TSP847II AirPrint to its printer lineup.

The TSP847II AirPrint is the second Apple AirPrint certified Star Micronics printer, following the release of the TSP654II AirPrint last year – the industry’s first AirPrint certified receipt printer.

AirPrint allows POS systems to easily integrate with any iOS device. Eliminating driver installation, AirPrint users simply follow the familiar iOS print routine, printing from the label printer just as they would from a standard inkjet or laser printer. AirPrint also enables mobile control of Star Micronics’ cash drawer and ticket alarm.

With the ability to print up to 37 labels per minute, the TSP847II AirPrint is ultra-fast and capable of printing labels, tickets, forms, barcodes, and graphics on 3” to 4.4” wide paper. In addition to indoor use, the TSP847II AirPrint can be used inside vehicles for food delivery, field service, law enforcement, and more.

“We look forward simplifying to our customers’ businesses with the TSP847II AirPrint,” said Christophe Naasz, Director of Business Development at Star Micronics. “This ‘plug and play’ printer is the perfect solution for applications that generally do not support direct printing.”

Star Micronics Unveils Eco- and Business-Friendly Coreless Paper Rolls

Somerset, NJ – January 14, 2019 – Star Micronics, a leading manufacturer of mobile, point of sale (POS), and customer engagement technologies, is excited to announce its debut of coreless paper rolls that are budget-conscious, eco-friendly, and expected to improve both customer reputation and printer reliability.

The new Star coreless paper rolls will positively impact the environment, as traditional cores are petroleum-based, not biodegradable, and not always properly recycled. Implementing environmentally friendly paper rolls will give customers a greener footprint, helping them to create a more positive reputation. The new coreless rolls are also BPA-free and compliant with California Proposition 65.

Containing 290 feet of paper, Star’s new rolls feature 26% more paper than traditional, 230-foot rolls. The paper-per-roll increase will reduce roll-reload frequency, and the rolls aim to increase printer reliability by eliminating the risk of employees leaving an old core in the printer and having to force the printer cover closed over a new roll.

“We are delighted to introduce this new coreless paper,” said Christophe Naasz, Director of Business Development at Star Micronics. “We expect Star’s coreless rolls to not only benefit the environment, but also save our customers money in both the short and long run.”

Star’s new coreless rolls accommodate a range of Star printers but work best with the mC-Print3, which features Print Flat Technology to reduce the paper curl that is often associated with tightly wound coreless rolls. Other compatible Star printers include the TSP100III, TSP650II, FVP10, TSP700, and HSP7000.

The mC-Print3 offers a compact footprint, and is equipped with multiple interfaces and HUB capability, allowing retailers to power their POS peripherals such as customer displays or barcode scanners, directly through the printer.

Veras CheckOut and Veras Extend with Star’s mC-Print3 also come ready-to-use with Star Micronics Cloud Services, including PromoPRNT. PromoPRNT allows retailers to simply create and schedule printed promotions, coupons, surveys, and more. The Star Micronics Cloud Dashboard hosts hundreds of drag-and-drop shapes, icons, and text, along with pre-designed promotion templates.

Star Micronics Introduces the mCollection

Star Micronics Introduces the mCollection

Somerset, NJ – August 1, 2018 – Star Micronics, a leading global manufacturer of mobile, point of sale (POS), and customer engagement technologies, is happy to announce the release of their latest line of products: the mCollection.  The mCollection was designed with the latest technology to deliver products that are compact in size, sleek in design, and provide an easy setup and wonderful user experience.

The central pieces of the mCollection are the printers: the mC-Prints.

The mC-Print2 and mC-Print3 are the collection’s 2- and 3-inch front-exit thermal printers designed for easy loading and low maintenance.  Each printer provides multiple connectivity options, including Ethernet, traditional USB, lightning USB, Bluetooth, and cloudPRNT, which allow for versatile use throughout retail locations. These printers can also be cloud-connected allowing any retailer to use Star’s latest printed promotion tool, PromoPRNT. The printer’s stylish, compact design compliments any brand and works with any modern retail environment, even when counter space is limited. Both of these printers have an integrated hub and provide the ability to connect peripherals.

The additional peripherals include the sleek and compact 1D scanners and 2D imagers. These products can communicate directly with the host or through the Star printer hub.

Also available in the mCollection is the customer display.  The customer display is offered in the two mCollection colors, black and white, and can fit perfectly on the mPOP or on the latest mC-Print printers.

Finally, Star is adding three digital NTEP certified scales to the mCollection. Two of these MG-scales (MG-S322 and MG-1501) are perfect for the cannabis industry, while the third one is designed for generic retail (MG-8200).

Another big benefit of the mCollection is that all products are controlled through Star’s common SDK software providing a quick, easy, and simple tool for integration by software developers.

“The mCollection is creating a lot of interest because it meets today and tomorrow’s retailer needs for flexibility and mobility with a future-proof design,” said Christophe Naasz, Director of Business Development at Star Micronics.

The mC-Print2 and mC-Print3 are now available!

The mG-Scales are coming soon.
