We use a U220B in the kitchen now with the carbon paper. Turns out we really need a 3rd copy for expo. I’d like to just stick another thermal printer (TM-88V or whatever) by the expo station and just have all Prep1 tickets print to both the main U220B and new printer. I’ve looked around and have not figured out how to do duplicate printing. Am I crazy or just missing something? Thanks!
FYI, we’re still on the old 3.83.0.1760.

There are several approaches to this problem.  It all depends on WHEN you want the ticket to print:
  1. Use another prep location and choose the same template. Direct the new prep location to the new printer.  Example:  You are currently printing to a prep 1 printer using a prep 1 template.  Use prep location 6 and choose the prep 1 template again.  For the order stations direct the prep 6 location output to the new printer
  2. Use the expo monitor for completed orders or just print an expo ticket once the entire order is complete.
  3. Use a prep-all-in-one ticket to print all of the ordered items right away and direct the output to another printer, again using an unused prep location.

I should have thought of that (option 1)! Thank you so much for the speedy response!
