Epson’s main strength is its compact, energy saving and high precision technologies that it has acquired and developed over the years. The same applies to Epson’s TM series of thermal receipt printers where Epson has refined its original printer mechanisms and technologies to create products that are distinct from those of competitors such as Star, Bixolon, Citizen and SII. As part of its efforts to maintain its market leadership, Epson has also developed its original ESC/Pos command language for receipt printers.
As a result of these efforts, Epson receipt printers have become a global standard. Sold throughout the world, the company’s miniprinters have been highly evaluated by customers with sales now surpassing 300 million units.
The latest innovation in Epson’s long line of receipt printers are its series of smart receipt printers. Built on the firm foundations Epson has established over the years they have been created to meet the needs of the age.
