Boeing includes AstroNova's Toughwriter 5 in catalog for B737NG and B737 MAX aircraft

Astro-Med, Inc. , d/b/a AstroNova, today announced that its ToughWriter 5 airborne high-speed printer has been selected for inclusion in the Boeing catalog for the B737 Next-Generation (B737NG) and new B737 MAX aircraft families. Shipments are scheduled to begin in calendar year 2017, pending certification by Boeing .

“We are excited to expand our relationship with Boeing , the world's largest aerospace company,” said Gregory A. Woods , AstroNova's President and Chief Executive Officer. “Inclusion in the Boeing catalog positions the ToughWriter 5 prominently for carriers expanding their fleet or replacing older aircraft. In fact, a major U.S. carrier recently selected the ToughWriter 5 for its B737 MAX fleet. The broader visibility our products receive as catalog-offered equipment serves as a catalyst for orders, enabling us to reach a wider customer base and drive sales growth.”

The ToughWriter 5 is the newest member of AstroNova's airborne printer family and the world's smallest and lightest flight deck printer. At less than 9 pounds and just 7.3 inches deep, the ToughWriter 5 meets the commercial transport aircraft demands for efficient design without sacrificing quality or capability.

The ToughWriter 5 is used in the flight deck of an aircraft to print ground communications, weather maps, approach plates, airport diagrams and other critical flight information. The printer also can be installed in the cabin of commercial aircraft, allowing crew and passengers to print maintenance data, receipts and passenger manifests.
