What is a Dot Matrix Printer?
href="https://www.printerland.co.uk/printers/laser">laser printers, dot matrix printers prints using impact technology. They work by the machine running back and forth or up and down on a sheet of paper, rubbing an ink-soaked piece of material against the surface.
Much like the mechanism used on a print typewriter, this kind of computer printing requires the dot matrix printers to draw out letters. This enables the use of varied fonts and arbitrary graphics; making them ideal printing machines for businesses who are looking for a printer to take care of their visual graphics.
Eco-Friendly Dot Matrix Printers
Because the printing involves mechanical pressure, dot matrix printers can create carbon copies and carbonless copies; unlike non-impact printers. Their printing costs are also significantly lower as maintenance isn’t often required.
Dot matrix printers are ideal for printing multi-part pages, making them perfect for data logging. Their consumable life is usually far greater than laser or inkjet printers and prints generally tend to fade rather than coming to a complete stop, as happens at the end of an ink or toner cartridge.
Dot matrix printers are extremely reliable and are preferred when reliability of printing is more important than the quality of the print output.
