HIGH WYCOMBE, UNITED KINGDOM, July 11, 2024 /EINPresswire / -- Star Micronics, a leading manufacturer of packaged and modular specialist kiosk printing solutions, announces the latest addition to its kiosk printer range with the SK5-31 ultra compact kiosk printer. The printer extends Star's wide selection of compact printers for limited space enclosures.

The SK5-31 is designed for simple integration and is ideal for reliable unattended and self-service kiosk applications across retail, hospitality and transportation. To ensure successful installation, the printer features a multi-position paper holder with a range of paper widths, roll diameters and paper thicknesses from receipts and documents to high quality tickets and vouchers.

The paper arm, a unique feature included as standard, is designed to accommodate paper rolls up to 150mm diameter and can be installed in six positions on either the left or right side, resulting in simple integration and a versatile paper path for any kiosk application. Moreover, the paper holder incorporates a patented, fixed easy load paper spindle with simple width adjustment.

Featuring an integrated presenter, the SK5-31 is designed to prevent paper jams by printing the complete document before it is presented, while documents that are not taken can be retracted for security purposes. In addition, the printer includes paper protection and paper eject assistance, near end paper sensor, a high-quality cutter and simple access for printer and paper cutter maintenance.

In terms of connectivity, two models of the SK5-31 are available with serial and USB or Ethernet LAN and USB interfaces.
