Hamden, Connecticut-based TransAct Technologies, which sells market-specific impact, thermal and inkjet printers to gaming, point-of-sale and banking customers in Europe, the Americas, Africa and the Pacific, unveiled its new, compact Epic 880 printer at the International Gaming Expo in London in January, to highly positive reviews.

This small-footprint, affordable, high-speed printer has standard-option connectivity, so it is easily integrated into most games or kiosks. Despite its small size it has 8MB of RAM. The Epic 880 is suited for gaming applications such as video lottery terminals, fixed-odds betting terminals, amusement-with-prizes, skill-with-prizes, and pachinko machines in Japan. Because of its modular design and variable-position spindle mount, it can be configured to any available space.

The product uses either four-inch or six-inch diameter rolls, rather than fixed-length tickets, making it flexible for graphics, coupons or promotions.

The printer was built on knowledge gained from the company’s earlier product, the Epic 430. But the new printer has been improved with features such as an easy-access clamshell that makes for quick replacement of paper rolls.

It supports variable-length receipt printing of up to 10 inches for flexibility in printing options. It also provides a built-in path for a ticket to be retracted back inside the game in the event a player does not take the ticket.

The printer is self-contained, with an electronics base built into the printer, and an adjustable paper spindle for maximum flexibility in paper roll positioning.
