Thermal printer company rounds out its mobile printer family with new 3-inch model.
Torrance, CA, January 10, 2019–Seiko Instruments USA Inc. (SII) Thermal Printer Division, http://www.siiprinters.com, a globally recognized leader in thermal printer technology today announced the availability of its newest mobile printer known as the MP-B30. The printer, which follows the company’s MP-B20 model launched in 2017, offers similar features to this and its MP-A40 Mobile Printer counterpart.
The MP-B30 mobile printer offers the same compact and light weight as Seiko’s 2-inch model, and also has the ability to withstand drops of up to 6 feet, making it ideal for a variety of verticals and applications, such as retail, hospitality, e-citation, warehousing, and other areas where mobility and ease of use are of utmost importance.
As is expected from a Seiko Instruments product, the MP-B30 prints high-resolution receipts at 5 inches per second. Its outwardly stylish appearance and ease of use contributes to its inward strength of being able to operate in all kinds of conditions, including temperatures of -4 degrees F to 131 degrees F. Further, the printer’s easily rechargeable battery (with optional cradle) lends itself to readiness and a technologically advanced compatibility with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi interfaces, as well as the latest Windows and Android Operating Systems.
“In following up to both the MP-A40 and MP-B20 mobile printers, our newest 3-inch model printer far exceeds any other printer of its class when it comes to reliability, ease of use and durability,” said Yoshi Murakami, General Manager, Seiko Instruments USA Thermal Printer Division. “Keeping the needs of our customers in mind, the printer will go above and beyond to deliver high-quality receipt printing in settings where speed, easy access and unpredictable conditions might occur, thus making it one of the most versatile printer models currently on the market.”
Shipments of the MP-B30 Series printers will be available this spring. For more information, and to pre-order, please click here or call (877) 905-2291.

Imagine being able to print high-resolution receipts at 100 mm per second! What’s more is after several tests performed in our product lab, the MP-A40 mobile printer was able to perform at 100% after multiple drops.
Simple Operation, Stylish Design
With up to a 4-inch paper width, and weighing more than 1.5 pounds, the MP-A40 Series mobile printers are built tough, but that doesn’t mean they lack in style or simplicity. With an easy drop-in paper setting and easy access button, the printers offer a smart and robust design that easily fit into the palm of your hand, or belt clip; a small carry-on case offers the option of over-the-shoulder transport.
The MP-A40 Series Mobile Printers offer compatibility with the latest operating systems including Windows, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10. There is also SDK availability for both Android and Windows CE print class libraries for added mobility. Other option parts include AC adapter, battery pack, AC cable, battery charger (for both single and quad battery), car charger and USB cable. The printers also offer auto-detection Bluetooth interface and Wi-Fi capabilities, providing added value and easy transition from cable to wireless communications.
Similar to the MP-A40 model, the printer offers its own unique set of features such as stability following 5-foot drops, a 2-inch paper width and high-resolution receipts that print at more than 3 inches per second. Designed to be used in a variety of vertical markets, such as retail, hospitality, healthcare, and warehousing and logistics, one of the printer’s main features is its compatibility with mobile payment and mobile POS applications—specifically “Pay at the Table,” and direct receipt delivery.
Compact and Lightweight
With a 2-inch paper width, which far outshines any of its competing mobile receipt printers currently on the market, the MP-B20 Series printers weigh less than 1 pound with battery pack. What’s more, is that the printer’s ability to withstand drops of up to 5 feet, is a perfect fit for a diverse mix of vertical markets; from hospitality and retail where space and convenience are of paramount importance, to other areas such as healthcare and warehousing/logistics, where ruggedness and environment play an important role.
Sleek and Stylish Design
The MP-B20 Series Printer features a contemporary yet functional design, while still offering the ability to print high-resolution receipts at more than 3 inches per second—one of the highest print speeds on the market. This is especially helpful in vertical markets where efficiency and speed are key and which require items such as barcoding, for instance in a medical and/or hospital setting. Other verticals can benefit from the printer’s rapid speed, such as a line-busting scenario at a retail store, or a pay at the table situation in a restaurant.
The MP-B20 Series Mobile Printers offer compatibility with the latest operating systems including Windows, 7, 8, 8.1 and 10. There is also SDK availability for Android and iOS print class libraries for added mobility. The printer also features a USB style charger, as well as a compact and portable cradle for quick and easy charging options.
