MONTROUGE, FRANCE--(Marketwire - June 5, 2007) - MGTA, the latest high-speed thermal printer mechanism from Axiohm

Fast, compact, robust and combining high performance with polyvalence, the MGTA satisfies even the most challenging of printing demands.

AXIOHM, specialist in thermal printing solutions since 1988, extend their product range with their latest thermal printer mechanism, the MGTA, and therefore offer a solution to printing problems in numerous markets. Official launch on June, 6th 2007.

MGTA mechanism enriches Axiohm's product range, offering undisputed strength along with the following advantages:

- Speed: A mechanism that ranks amongst the fastest in its category (up to 180 mm/s), which is silent and designed to prevent paper jams.

- Performance: The MGTA features an ultra-performing and long-lasting guillotine cutter warranted up to 1 million cuts.

- Robustness: Offering top mechanical reliability warranted for up to 100 Km of printed paper, the MGTA mechanism is also capable of withstanding extended temperature ranges from -20 degrees to +60 degrees C.

Cyril Marco, Product Manager at Axiohm comments: "As a result of its specification, the MGTA mechanism can naturally cover the printing needs of a variety of applications within the transportation, gaming, self service kiosks, Point of Sales and ATM sectors. Our engineering team has developed a product combining features that are specific to individual applications and consequently, Axiohm can now provide a solution to many requirements with a single product. "

Ideal for any type of application, even the most demanding ones

Not only satisfying the most common applications but also providing a high-performing and reliable printing solution in the most demanding environments, the MGTA mechanism addresses the printing needs of a wide range of markets:

- Thanks to its ultra-robust guillotine cutter, the MGTA is capable of printing on paper up to 120µm thick, which is very often used in Transportation applications.

- Available in both paper widths of 80 mm (standard payment receipt size) and 82.5 mm (standard gaming ticket size), and featuring a robust motor capable of enduring high peaks in printing demand, the MGTA thermal printer mechanism is particularly suitable for POS and Gaming applications.

- Its proven capacity to withstand extreme climatic conditions (-20 degreesC à +60 degreesC) makes the MGTA one of the best suited thermal printer mechanisms for outdoor applications such as ATMs or Self-Service Kiosks.

" This newly-created printing mechanism is highly anticipated by our clients as it perfectly responds to the market demands, be it in terms of quality and printing speed, reliability or resistance to harsh climatic temperatures while, at the same time, remaining compact and therefore easy to integrate. In that respect, the integration process is also largely facilitated thanks to the MGTA's easy-opening lever. The MGTA reinforces and enriches Axiohm's already vast offering of 80 / 82.5 mm thermal printer mechanisms. Its official launch is planned for mid-May in Europe and on the American continent, in the Middle East, and in Asia Pacific where great business opportunities are expected", concludes C. Marco.
