Universal Features

All three printer models in Epson's TM-U220 Series are optimized for high-speed throughput so customer receipts and kitchen orders print faster than ever. For maximum efficiency, the TM-U220A, TM-U220B and TM-U220D all offer drop-in paper loading and two-color, black and red printing to highlight special offers and print more high-impact logos. They also have an adjustable paper width feature that allows you to use 58, 70 or 76mm paper rolls for more flexibility and greater cost savings.

A Model for Every Need

With Epson's TM-U220 series, you have the freedom to select the model that best fits your needs. The TM-U220A and TM-U220B come with an autocutter so you can choose between a full or partial cut, and an Auto Status Back function that automatically transmits changes in the printer status. The TM-U220A includes a take-up journal device and the TM-U220B and the TM-U220D have a wall-mounting option that prints the receipt right side up for easy reading right out of the printer. And of course, all three printers feature the quality, reliability and advanced printing technology that Epson is famous for.

Smooth and Easy Transition

To make upgrading even easier, Epson's TM-U220 series has been designed to be 100% compatible with existing systems that currently use a TM-U200 printer. Because the external dimensions of the TM-U200 and TM-U220 printer series are almost identical, transitioning to a new TM-U220 printer is as simple as removing the TM-U200 and dropping in the new TM-U220 and AC adapter.
