Rewritable A4 printer

information card printer for production planning and control

Rewritable A4 printer RWI-001

Cyber Imaging takes the guess work out of thermal printing by introducing a vastly improved, affordable printhead system. This new Intelligent Thermal Technology thermal print-head system offers accurate high-speed temperature control without producing extra heat. Its petented feedback circuitry defects temperature in real time and is able to keep a precise temperature level regardless of outside factors. Even with a fast through-put rate, the Intelligent Thermal Technology printhead is energy efficient, It can handle full bleed and edge-to edge printing without over-haeting the unapplied elements.



RWI-001 is the information-card printer which has the function to erase and to print the information of character and a two-dimensional bar code by command control from host computer.


  • Erasing and printing are simultaneously carried out by the single thermal head.
  • Heater roller for character erasing isn't need.
  • The miniaturization of a power supply
  • The above-mentioned feature realizes miniaturization of equipment, lightweight-izing, and low-pricing.
  • Stable printing which is not influenced by environmental temperature, such as high temperature and low temperature.
  • Operation in a narrow space is also enabled.
  • A4 of the maximum printing size is printed for high speed in 8 seconds.
  • Rewritable prints are available about 1,000 times .
  • 50 sheets can be stocked in a paper stocker.

Rewritable Media

  • It is hard to break, supple and user-friendly.
  • Clear character quality by suitable heating printing
  • It writes and changes by always supplying necessary minimum energy and losing the "roughness" on the surface of media, and the number of times is raised sharply.
  • The small basis material of environmental load is used at the time of abandonment.
  • The paper of high durability which cannot be easily influenced of water, oil, medicine, etc.

Printing Quality

  • Highly precise temperature and energy control realize highly precise character quality
  • High concentration black coloring with the printed readable text
