Compuprint Product Information
Thanks for choosing the Compuprint SP40plus printer.
Your printer is a reliable working equipment that will be very useful in your daily job.
Our printers have been designed to be compact and respectful of the work environment. They offer a wide
range of features and multiple functions that confirm the high technological level reached by Compuprint
printers.
To maintain these printing performances unchanged in the long run, Compuprint has developed its own
specific branded consumables for each printer type (for example: ribbon cartridges for dot matrix printers,
toner and OPC cartridges for laser printers, bubble ink jet cartridges for inkjet printers) that assure an
excellent operation with high printing quality level reliability.
Compuprint recommends to use only its original Compuprint branded consumables with original packaging
(identified by its holographic label). In this way, a proper use of the printer at quality level stated in the
product characteristics can be assured. All typical usage problems related to not certified consumables may
be avoided, such as an overall quality print level degradation and, often, the reduction of the product life due
to the fact that the proper working conditions for the print heads, OPC cartridge and other printer parts are
not assured.
Moreover, Compuprint does not only certify its consumables in terms of working conditions but also carefully
controls their compliance with the international standard rules concerning:
no cancerous materials;
no flammability of the plastic materials;
other standards
Compuprint advises the customers not to use products for which the compliance to this safety rules are not
warranted. Finally seek your dealer or contact a COMPUPRINT office and be sure that are provided you the
original Compuprint branded consumables.

Printing on a wide range of paper media: different types of cut sheets, multi-parts and passbooks.
High print pressure for multi-parts documents
High print quality supplied by a 24 wire print head
High reliability paper handling
The straight paper path allows the printing on particular documents such as envelopes, multipart
forms and passbooks.
Automatic paper thickness adjustment
The print head detects the paper thickness for correct printing on any type of document. This printer
can print also on documents with a variable thickness, such as passbooks.
Easy paper handling
The operator places the paper on the front table and the printer loads it without any other user
intervention. The paper ejection towards the front or the rear of the printer allows an easy access to
the printed document.
Automatic document alignment feature
The printer checks automatically the alignment of the top margin of the document and adjusts it, if
necessary. The printout is therefore performed correctly independently from the paper loading
position.
