Dot Matrix Printers for Dependable Forms Printing
Enjoy the simplicity and speed of dot matrix printers for handling your daily form printing. Whether you need reports or receipts printed, dot matrix printers are purpose-built for working quickly and reliably in the back office or at the point of sale, even in demanding environments like shops and garages.
Impact Printing on Multi-Part Forms
Dot matrix printers go where lasers can't; with their impact print heads, dot matrix printers can hammer through multi-part carbonless forms for routine business uses, such as receipts or departmental reports. Modern dot matrix printers offer quiet modes for muffling the sounds of their pins striking the paper. Impact printing applies ink to the top copy while pressing through to the sheets below, just like pressing hard with a ballpoint pen when signing credit card receipts.
Tractor Feed for Continuous Printing
Dot matrix printers have the unique ability to print on tractor feed paper. These special kinds of paper, whether single-sheet or multi-part, have rows of holes on each side of the page that feed through the printer on a series of pins, guiding the paper through the machine. This valuable feature ensures that the print head remains aligned with pre-printed forms as they spool through the printer. Since tractor feed paper comes in boxes of hundreds or thousands of sheets, your printer can keep working for extended periods of time without additional servicing.
Legacy Technology for Modern Businesses
Dot matrix printers represent a stable technology that has been going strong for decades. They offer modern interfaces, such as USB, for contemporary computers while maintaining backward compatibility with older devices and software, including parallel printer ports and 1990s-era versions of Windows, lowering equipment costs and saving you money.
