The speakers’ panel will be composed of industry experts in the graphic arts field and editors of leading magazines and electronic press, while major Balkan printing companies are invited to share their experience and comment on latest market trends and business opportunities.

During the extensive product tour, visitors will have the chance to watch a full plastic cards production with Meteor DP8700XL digital press and MGI finishing solutions. We will premiere Xante’s new IMPRESSIA Multi-Media Digital Press, developed for lower cost per print, with advanced color quality. Seiko ColorPainter W series featuring new, innovative NEON inks will show the way for a new, exciting market: black light graphics

Innovations for the large format printing

The world’s first solvent-based fluorescent inks for wide-format printing, new NEON Yellow and ΝΕΟΝ Pink inks developed especially for the Seiko ColorPainter W series, provide sign makers and digital printers with the ability to explore a whole new application – blacklight graphics.
Simply setting the inks on the standard ColorPainter W printer (6-color configuration), no special cleaning practices or other complicated mechanisms required, professionals will be able to create easily exciting new graphics for night clubs, bowling alleys, special events, parties, sporting venues, amusement parks e.t.c.
For heavy production needs, ColorPainter H2-Series is the answer for those seeking unparalleled productivity, robust design, reliable technology, 4 or 8 colors and high speed high density printing. Equipped with bulk ink system and new VX solvent inks, 4-color ColorPainter H2P-series is ideal for high volume printing

Super-small Package 2-circuit Built-in Delay Function High Ripple-rejection Low Dropout CMOS Voltage Regulator S-13D1 Series

The S-13D1 Series, developed by using the CMOS technology, is a 2-channel positive voltage regulator IC which has low dropout voltage, high accuracy output voltage and low current consumption. A 0.22 µF small ceramic capacitor can be used, and the S-13D1 Series includes a load current protection circuit that prevents the output current from exceeding the current capacitance of the output transistor and a thermal shutdown circuit that prevents damage due to overheating. Also, C / F type in the S-13D1 Series has a built-in delay function that sets the difference of rising time in a channel.

Seiko Instruments GmbH introduces the new receipt thermal printer “RP-E series”

The highest printing speed and the most compact in the market

RP-E Series Seiko Instruments is launching the new POS series RP-E. The cubic, stylish shape and small footprint of 129mm x 129mm x 129mm make it the most compact in the market. The optional top or front paper exit is located on the same surface as the paper cover and the switches, ensuring an effective use of the space around the printer.

High Printing Speed

The RP-E series achieves the markets highest printing speed of 350mm/s. Together with a cutter life of 2m cuts and 150km thermal head abrasion resistance, the RP-E is also the global leader in its class in terms of reliability.

LED Bar and Buzzer

A large LED bar which is easily visible from a distance and also from different angles, signals the printer status by multiple colors. In addition, a buzzer sound informs the user about the status of the printer. The anti-paper-jam function allows the cutter blade to automatically return to the home position when the paper cover is opened, due to a cutter error. Apart from the standard interfaces (USB and serial) there will be a powered USB as well as an Ethernet version available. The printer comes in black or white.

Coming from our years of experience as the market’s No. 1 compact thermal printer supplier, Seiko Instruments will promote this new POS printer series to various users for numerous applications such as restaurants, retail stores, ticketing devices at hospitals and/or libraries.
