Heavy sheets of notepaper, envelopes, postcards or labels, with its friction roller and flat bed push tractor the Seikosha FB-375 handles even thicker types of paper and with the 13 resident fonts your printouts will make a good impression anywhere.


The Seikosha FB-375 has very fast reactions, mastering a capacity of 375 characters per second (high -speed draft at 15 cpi). That should be sufficient to vastly accelerate your work routines.

Multipart sets

Multipart sets with an average of five duplicates present no problem. The distance of the print head is automatically optimised, saving the time and effort of making a manual setting. The throughput can be adjusted to the three levels and guarantees legible multipart sets.

Bar codes

The Seikosha FB-375 can print nine internationally accepted bar codes: Industrial 2 of 5, codabar, code 128, code 39, EAN-8, EAN-13, UPC-A and UPC-E. This means that all warehousing and freight documents can be labelled comprehensibly and free of errors.

Ease of operation

  • Clearly arranged operation panel
  • 16-character LCD display
  • Display in four languages on option (D, UK, F, E)
  • Quiet mode to reduce printing noise
Versatile interfacing possibilities

The standard Seikosha FB-375 comes equipped with a bi-directional parallel interface which can easily be enhanced by adding a serial interface such as RS-232C, Coax, Twinax, Token Ring or Ethernet (the printer automatically switches from one interface to the other).

Useful accessories for the SEIKOSHA FB-375


Further interfaces as RS-232C, Coax, Twinax, Token Ring, Ethernet are optionally available.

Cut sheet feeder

Single cut sheet hand insert or auto sheet feeder.

In practice a wide range of forms need to be printed every day, as quickly as possible, and with a minimum of manual intervention and acoustics. Apart from the advanced paper handling a high print quality, scalable fonts, bar codes, etc, are features which are important in today's business. the new Seikosha FB-375 is a flat bed printer which is absolutely ideal for all these requirements.

Quick results in letter-quality

Its 24-pin print head ensures clear characters and attractive graphic display with a resolution of 360 x 360 dpi. And it produces rapid printouts. At maximum speed, it can print up to 375 characters per second in draft quality, and it can print up to 125 characters per second (cps) in letter quality.

A wide selection of fonts and bar codes

The fonts Courier, Gothic, Bold PS, Prestige, Script, Orator, Orator-S, OCR-A and OCR-B are available in fixed point sizes for the letter quality mode, and Roman, Roman, Roman T, Sans-Serif and Sans-Serif H are available as scalable (8-40 point) fonts. In addition, the printer has nine common bar codes.

Easy and versatile media handling

The Seikosha FB-375 also demonstrates its versatility when handling paper. Yhe push tractor feeds the paper into the rear of the printer, and is suitable for all common continuous papers and form sets. It operates with an automatic paper park function, so that the continuous paper does not have to be removed from the printer if the user wishes to print an occasional single sheet. Single sheets of various formats up to a maximum width of 304 mm can be fed manually into the front of the printer and it alternatively paths the printer at the front or rear side.

Automatic head gap adjustment

Irrespective of whether formulars, bank transfers, cheque forms, etc., or envelopes, labels or even postcards have to be printed, the printer can accurately handle all formats and even unflexible materials. This is achieved by the straight paper path (flatbed principle). Optimum print quality is also ensured by the automatic facility for measuring the paper thickness and adjusting the distance between the print head and the print medium. This solution ensures that the fifth copy of a set of forms slso features good print quality without any setting having to be made on the printer.

Compatibility to common software and hardware

The FB-375 is compatible with common software and hardware. It features the emulations IBM® PPDS and EPSON® LQ870, and is equipped as standard with a bidirectional parallel interface. An interface for RS_232 C is optionally available. The printer is capable of automatically switching the interfaces.
