Toshiba Tec Corporation today unveils its B-FP3 mobile printer, which produces three-inch wide receipts and labels. The light and compact, yet robust printer with proven drop-resistant durability delivers crisp and clear labeling. The introduction of Toshiba Tec’s latest product expands the company’s mobile printer line enabling organizations to create two- to four-inch labels and receipts for an array of uses. The newly-minted B-FP3 printer will be available in April 2017*1.
The B-FP3 line features two models: one exclusively for printing receipts and another model, which delivers both labels and receipts. Toshiba Tec’s receipt model is also engineered to meet the width specifications of commonly-produced receipts to address organizations’ increasing receipt needs. In combination with mobile POS, Toshiba Tec’s receipt printer further enables pre-order and payments for queue busting applications, especially in the hospitality industry, within retail settings. The B-FP3 is also ideal for DSD (Direct Store Delivery) use.
B-FP3 is specially developed for extended use. The printers’ built-in energy saving functionality allows users to print approximately 3.3 rolls of media and complete almost two days of operation on one charge*2. The B-FP3’s print quantity and speed are also improved even when operating in energy saving mode. The B-FP3 is Toshiba’s first printer to comply with the Qi standard, an open interface standard for inductive wireless charging, which does not require battery removal or any external cable connection when charging*3. Intuitive connectivity to smart devices on iOS and Android platforms; an adjustable media holder, simple media swapping; and clearer notifications via a color LCD display further simplify organizations’ use of the new printer.
The development of Toshiba Tec’s B-FP3 printer aligns with the company’s commitment to the environment. The product is certified as one of Toshiba’s “Excellent ECPs (Environmentally Conscious Products),” which is the company’s internal certification awarded only to products achieving the highest level of environmental performance in the industry*4. The B-FP3’s energy-saving sleep mode, which dramatically reduces charging frequency, is a primary reason for the product attaining the certification.
The new mobile printer is designed and developed with “Together Information” – Toshiba Tec Printing Solutions’ vision of how people and organizations create, record, share, manage and display ideas and data – in mind. This concept is reflected in the global message for the new product: “Connect. Integrate. Simplify. – Technology for every workspace, delivering advanced functionality, ease of use and peace of mind.”
Understanding that every industry has unique workflow demands, Toshiba develops barcode printers to meet organizations’ wide ranging labeling needs.
