DAYTON, Ohio -- NCR Corporation yesterday released a simultaneous two-sided thermal receipt printer, which is designed to reduce paper roll receipt needs by as much as 50 percent, according to the company.
The technology available for the NCR RealPOS 7168, was developed to drive efficiencies at the point of sale (POS) by requiring fewer paper roll changes. And of course, reduced paper consumption will also benefit the environment by helping save trees.
"This technology has many applications," said Peter Dorsman, v.p. and g.m. of NCR's Systemedia Division, a provider of printer consumables such as paper rolls, laser cartridges, and RFID solutions. "Through the development of this new two-sided technology, NCR opens a world of opportunities for businesses to reduce costs, customize communications, and better serve their customers. NCR will be making this technology widely available through licensing agreements with printer manufacturers and OEMs."
NCR's two-sided printer allows retailers to customize messaging in receipts rather than relying on paper rolls with pre-printed promotions that cannot be changed. Plus, it can print in combinations of black on one side of the receipt with black, red, or blue on the other side with no additional cost for the paper or the printer.
The NCR RealPOS 7168 and NCR two-sided thermal paper rolls will be available for customer shipments in the third quarter of this year.
