OEM MiniPrinter Mechanisms and Interface Boards...

For the Original Equipment Manufacturer (oem), with large volume build quantities, it is common to integrate basic miniprinter components into the product design. This saves inventory costs, reduces the overall product size and allows total customisation for a unique product design.

M-Tech offer a range of interface pcbs for use with most impact and thermal miniprinter mechanisms available from manufacturers including: Axiohm, Epson, Fujitsu, Citizen & Seiko. The most common interface is serial RS232 but USB and Bluetooth wireless are gaining importance. Some legacy interfaces such as Parallel and IrDA (infra red wireless) can also be supported. Customised interface boards are easily and quickly developed at relatively low cost and all of our control boards can be re-configured for specific applications such as; special character sets, customisable input or output, default printing parameters etc.

Remember, as an independent miniprinter specialist, M-Tech Printers can recommend the best possible printer mechanism and interface control board for your application.
