Often overlooked, the unbelievably durable Dot Matrix printer is a ubiquitous part of any office. Though it has been in existence almost as long as personal computers have, the Dot Matrix printer continues to be a part of our lives today.
The sounds that accompany this type of computer printing come from the impact of a print head running back and forth, or up and down, on the page. The print head strikes an ink-soaked cloth ribbon against the paper, much like the print mechanism on a typewriter. However, unlike a typewriter or daisy wheel printer, letters are drawn out of a dot matrix, and thus, varied fonts and arbitrary graphics can be produced.
Their outstanding reliability, simplicity of use and bulletproof construction mean that even with more complicated options available, this printer is here to stay. As a pioneer and world-leading manufacturer of dot matrix printers, Epson has always been equated with this well-regarded machine.
“Epson dot matrix printers have been constantly improved throughout the years to be responsive to current needs. This unbeatable printing partner continuous to evolve and remains to be an important printing solution in both corporate and government segments, banks, retail, logistics, and hotels,” explained Thea Austria, Epson Philippines’ Head of Business System printers.
Building on its reputation as the world’s top dot matrix printer maker, Epson has introduced even better dot matrix printers that offer extreme speed, optimum efficiency, and even higher reliability than its legendary predecessors. Today’s flexible connectivity with multiple interfaces has also been integrated with the new Epson dot matrix printer line-up.
Epson showcases its legacy of development through its latest line-up of dependable dot matrix printers. The new models, LX-310 and LQ-310, boast of improved features such as more compact design, flexible connectivity with its built-in multiple interfaces (USB, Serial, Parallel), and increased reliability of Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) of 10,000 Power-On Hours.
