Dual cutter configuration
In addition to the conventional upper cutter, a lower cutter has been added to the front door. This enables paper to be cut in a downward direction in addition to an upward direction. This increased flexibility in cutting direction expands location choices for printer installation. For example, even if the printer is installed immediately below the operation console of an ultrasound system, paper can easily be cut from the front. Furthermore, a safety mechanism automatically hides the lower cutter when opening the front panel to change the printing paper.
