with top share in Japan

Compact printer module for self-baggage drop and self check-in system

Tokyo, July 8, 2020 – We have developed a new product "FUJITSU Printer 9890S" that will be embedded in devices that print airline tickets, boarding passes, and baggage tags in airport, and we release this from today.
This product is printer module which will be installed mainly in unmanned self-baggage drop system (SBD) and self check-in system (KIOSK). This product can be used for variety of ticket/baggage tag samples used in the world and it is possible to handle RFID and liner-less baggage tags (*1) which demand is expanding these days only by adding or exchanging option parts.
We will contribute to smooth boarding procedures and reducing congestion not only at staffed check-in counters but also at self check-in area and lead to customer's satisfaction.


The introduction of the SBD and KIOSK, which allow travelers to deposit their luggage and check in by themselves, is progressing rapidly around the world, against backdrops of needs for congestion reduction in boarding procedures and labor cost reduction.
To respond to these demands, we developed a model printer that can be embedded in self-service devices by utilizing FUJITSU mechanical component's expertise we have cultivated over many years. More than 100,000 of our airline printers have been sold globally and it makes us have 90% share of check-in counters of airports in Japan. (*2)
