This calculator looks similar to the TI-5040 but misses a display and outputs the results only on a thermal printer. Like the TI-5220 the TI-5015 added the useful GT (grand total) feature to the basic functions.
a TI-5015 manufactured in Italy reveals a clean design centered around a TMS1118
Single-Chip Microcontroller based on the famous TMS1000
Similiar chips were used in the never released SR-40 (Prototype) and the successful TI-5050M.
The thermal paper used with this printer (TP-30250 2-1/2" wide and 14 Feet length) was discontinued long time ago. In 2008 Appleton (Appleton, WI) manufactured with the Alpha 800-2.4 paper still a compatible paper.
A printing calculator with independent add register … and grand total.
Attractive. Economical. Prints a clear, legible tape. Quickly. Whisper-quiet.
