Epson - TM-T70
POS Thermal Printer

The TM-T70 is a high speed thermal receipt printer incorporating the high quality and reliability of the TM-T88 Series, whilst also providing a quiet and unobtrusive printing solution with it's full front operation, making it ideal for hospitality and retail environments

The TM-T70 gives retailers the ability to print clean receipts or coupons quickly, its partial cut delivery makes it easy to present to the customer, and the space saving design allows unobtrusive positioning on a crowded retail counter. Alternatively the TM-T70 can be mounted under the counter in a permanant fixture, as the front paper load, operation and presentation means it should never need to be moved again.

The TM-T70 features modular interface boards that enable users to select from Bi-directional Parallel, Serial, USB or Ethernet communications.
