In their paper handling versatility, Epson dot matrix
printers really excel. Advanced models offer paper
feeding from up to six paper sources*, and enable up
to four types of stationery to be held ‘on call.’ What’s
more, when space is at a premium, multi-path paper
feed gives you flexibility to position your printer
without compromising its functionality.
Optional equipment
A comprehensive range of Epson
paper handling options includes:
Typical Paper Paths

• Three continuous paper paths–front, rear,

• Two cut sheet paper paths – front

Cut sheet feeders
Offering 50, 150 and 250 sheet,
for automatic selection of forms
and plain stationery.
Motorised sheet feeders
For high volume cut sheet printing,
optional motorised cut sheet feeders
are available for selected products,
like the 150 sheet cut sheet feeder for
the LQ-2180. Equipped with productivity
enhancing, independent motor drives,
these feeders reduce paper handling
time and ensure optimum paper
throughput.
Paper feed tractors
A choice of push, pull, and push/pull
combined tractors not only enable
more than one stationery type to be
permanently loaded for delivery on
demand, but handle continuous and
multi-part stationery more efficiently.
Roll paper holder
This provides an inexpensive
alternative to using continuous roll
paper for applications requiring
variable paper lengths.
*Using Epson paper handling options
Fully compatible with existing software,
ESC/P2 is designed for use with non
Windows® operating systems, enabling
you to achieve font manipulation without
the need for costly on-board processors.
If you are working within the Windows®
environment you will be able to achieve
your printer’s maximum speed by using
printer resident fonts.
Connectivity
Epson connectivity goes far beyond
USB, parallel and serial interfaces.
Where Epson impact printers are
required to serve either as a shared
resource or as a personal printer within
IBM or mainframe environments, we offer
Ethernet, Wireless 802.11b, Twinax, Coax
and LocalTalk interfaces.
Epson fabric ribbons are highly durable
and hold an exact charge of ink to ensure
clear characters with no splattering.
To minimise printhead wear, Epson ink
includes lubricating oils.
For full details of interfacing options
please refer to the options and
specifications tables at the back
of this brochure.
Colour printing
Colour printing highlights important
information and gives clarity to forms.
Epson colour ribbons are ultra tough
and produce colourful results without
bleed or smudging. An easily installed
colour upgrade is available for selected
printers. For full details of printing
options please refer to the options
and specifications tables at the back
of this brochure.
Epson supplies
Your Epson dot matrix printer demands
Epson ribbons for high performance.
Designed to withstand the stresses
of everyday use, Epson ribbons come

applications where space is limited. But also as a printer
