Seiko I Infotech Inc. (SIIT) Introduces A New Wide-Format Multifunction Printer Series: The Teriostar LP-1030 Series
Best productivity in value-class wide-format LED printers

Japan, April 7th, 2011 – Seiko I Infotech Inc. (SIIT), a wholly owned subsidiary of Seiko Instruments Inc., has released the Teriostar LP-1030 series, a value-class wide-format multifunction printer with high performance and compact design. The Teriostar LP-1030 series offers two models: the LP-1030-MF, a multifunction model integrating copy, scan, and print functions, and the LP-1030, a printer model. Shipments will begin in May, 2011.

SIIT has recently developed a high-performance print engine and scanner, which allow the LP-1030 series to achieve print speeds of 6.2 A1-size prints per minute, 7.5 D-size prints per minute, and scanning speeds of up to 240 mm/9.4″per second. Combining these two features, the LP-1030 series will improve workplace productivity and running costs, which are increasingly needed in today’s competitive market. As previous Teriostar models, the LP-1030 series is equipped with the industry’s first and only user-replaceable process cartridge.

Main functions

1. The High-Speed 600 dpi Print Engine and a New Output System Improve Productivity
The new high-speed print engine achieves print speeds of 6.2 A1-size prints per minute, 7.5 D-size prints per minute. Moreover, the LP-1030 automatically delivers small prints to the upper catch tray and large prints to the lower catch basket. This saves time for sorting prints and improves workflow efficiency.

2. A0/E-size High-Speed 600 dpi Color Scanner
The integrated scanner scans at speeds of up to 240 mm/9.4″ per second (Black and white: 300 dpi, Color: 150 dpi). The latest scanner controller creates data in high speed by optimizing scanned images. Moderate scanning (60 mm/2.36″ per second) is available for scanning old or damaged originals.

3. Space-Saving Compact Design
The LP-1030 offers a very small footprint of 1200 mm (W) by 605 mm (D). All paper operations are from the front, so the LP-1030 can be pushed right up against a wall. This saves space and provides easy printer positioning in small workspaces.

4. User-Replaceable Process Cartridge and Charge Wire Unit
SIIT has put the photosensitive drum, a major cause of image failure, into a user-replaceable cartridge. This unique user-replaceable process cartridge and charge wire configuration allows anyone to replace them when needed. This eliminates service calls, and reduces downtime significantly.

5. Large, Easy-To-Use 8.5″ Color Touch Panel
A large 8.5″ color GUI (Graphical User Interface) offers improved visibility and visual guidance for intuitive and simple operation.

6. PC Based Software Suite (TerioStation) Included
A new software suite that supports a true PDF workflow is now included to streamline document input/output workflow.

a) Batch Print Function
The LP-1030 supports various data formats such as HP-GL, TIFF and PDF. With simple drag-and-drop operation, users can batch print multiple files in supported file formats.

b) Viewer Function
Users can now view the data with a simple drag and drop operation to the viewer window (Viewable data: TIFF, PDF, JPEG and PNG)

c) Scan to File
A new scan driver converts wide format drawings to TIFF and PDF files. With optional color scanning upgrade, JPEG and BMP files can be created in color, too.
