A716 Direct Thermal Receipt Printers

Continuing in the tradition of our Clamshell™ design, the A716 Direct Thermal Receipt Printer provides both the ease of use and exceptional reliability you have come to expect from Axiohm. Affordable and adaptable, the A716 meets everyday receipt printing needs with high Axiohm standards.


Now everyone can afford Axiohm quality. The A716 combines a very aggressive price point with Axiohm reliability, resulting in low Total Cost of Ownership.


Design a POS solution that meets your needs. Don't need an autocutter? Don't pay for one. The A716 lets you customize the printer to your application. The A716 can be ordered with an autocutter or manual tear bar, with RS232 or IEEE-1284, or both interface options, with page support mode, and with EFT or POS emulations.

Feature Rich

The A716 prints at 203 dpi for crisp logos, pictures and bar codes from downloadable graphics, and an RJ-11 cash drawer driver capable of controlling two drawers. It also supports a full range of printer emulations and bar code symbologies.

The A716 prints on 3.15 inch (80mm) wide direct thermal paper at a rate of 56mm/sec. With a footprint of only 43.3 inches it is one of the smallest printers in it's class and saves valuable counter space.
