What is a Dot Matrix Printer?
Unlike laser printers, a dot matrix printer is a machine with a print head that prints by impact. This can occur when the machine runs back and forth or in an up and down motion on the page, rubbing an ink-soaked piece of material against the paper inserted.
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 generally tends to fade rather than coming to a complete stop.
Dot Matrix printers are extremely reliable and are preferred when content is more important than the quality of the print output.
