ME240 LCD + Cutter
Before installing the TSC printers, cashiers from Moldavian Football Federation faced many difficulties in servicing clients from an outdated solution to print entrance tickets. A significant problem was the absence of authorized service centers on the territory of Moldova too. In peak periods, the lines at the ticket offices and the entrances in Zimbru Stadium in Chișinău were very long. At the request of the Federation, the company MELITAX Grup Srl, founded 2006 as the only provider in the market, has developed, at first, a reliable printing solution for Zimbru Stadium with TSCs powerful thermal transfer printers ME240. The second big project was sport complex "Futsal Arena FMF", one of the most modern sports facilities in Moldova too.
TSCs compact ME240 with its clear LC display, fast label throughput and print speeds of up to 152 mm/s ensures a reliable and rapid printing process and ticketing. The powerful thermal transfer models save time and prevent long queues at the ticket offices and at the entrances. All relevant information such as date, time of admission, row and seat number, logo and ticket number are printed accurately with a 203 dpi print resolution on colored pre-printed tickets. The integrated Real Time Clock guarantees maximum of transparency because of the possibility to print the time of ticketing. Additionally, 1D barcode plays an especially important role – it can be read by stationary scanners and allows a reliable and safe access control at the entrance. The tickets are cut precisely in the cutting unit immediately after print.
