WALLINGFORD, Conn.—TransAct Technologies Inc., maker of Ithaca transaction-based printers, has introduced its new KITCHENjet 1000 POS printer, built specifically for the restaurant industry.
According to a news release, the KITCHENjet 1000 comes standard with TransAct's two color printing capability used for kitchen order modifiers. A key feature is the printer's custom cabinetry, made of high heat resistant material to help prevent damage when placed near hot surfaces.
Additional standard features include a heavy-duty auto-cutter; a receipt cover which covers the receipt exit path to prevent spills and debris from getting into the printer; a loud programmable buzzer which alerts the kitchen staff when an order is printed; and numerous emulations allowing easy integration into many platforms. The KITCHENjet 1000 also is available with an 802.11b wireless option to reduce cable clutter in the kitchen.
"The benefits of inkjet printing in the kitchen are so compelling compared to alternative impact and thermal technologies," TransAct Technologies' executive vice president, sales and marketing Jim Stetson said in the release. "Inkjet technology produces tickets which are much more durable than impact or thermal tickets because they resist damage from high heat, greases and oils. Inkjet printing is also a very economical choice as its low printer purchase price and low cost paper and ink cartridges provide a very favorable total cost of ownership."
