CYPRESS, Calif. -- Unitech America officially released the MP-series, a new product line of mobile receipt and label printers. The mobile printers seamlessly integrate with Unitech's full line of mobile computers, offering the market a complete mobile solution.
"I see great value in our ability to offer our solution partners a complete Unitech mobile solution," Bill Lewis, Unitech America director of sales and marketing said. "Built to perform and priced to compete' are common for our mobile computers, and now our portable printers."
A recent partnership with Extech Instruments, allows Unitech to offer the market compact, lightweight and durable mobile printers that communicate through IrDA and Bluetooth.
"The reliability we build into each Unitech product, through innovative design, is equal to what Extech has accomplished. This is why we have selected Extech as our primary partner for our portable printers," Lewis said.
Three printer models make up the MP-series: The MP200, MP300 and MP350. All three models produce receipts, but the MP350 is also capable of label and form printing on stock paper. The MP200 prints 2-inch width receipts, while the MP300 and MP350 print 3-inch paper widths.
"Extech is very excited to formalize our long standing relationship with Unitech and their partners. We are particularly thrilled about their choice of the MP350 with the printer's ability to handle labels and form printing," Ahmed Elaasar, Extech Instruments director of business development said.
There is no need for ink cartridges, because the MP-series prints through a direct thermal application -- heat contact. These mobile printers can integrate into any business, because they can generate custom logos, bar codes and graphic elements.
The MP-series printers are ideal for line-busting applications, providing the ability to reduce consumer wait time in lines at sporting events, theme parks and restaurants. An optional magnetic strip reader is available for all three models, making the MP-series ideal for credit card transactions.
