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
Flat

• Cut sheet manual feed front in –
front out
• Optional 150 sheet cut sheet feeder
• Optional 50 sheet cut sheet feeder
Cut sheet feeders
• Tractor fed continuous

• Three continuous paper paths – front,
rear, and bottom
• 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
Epson 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
Compatibility – ESC / P2
ESC / P (Epson Software Command /
Printers) is the defacto standard dot
matrix printer control language, worldwide. Adopted in the vast majority of
popular software packages, ESC / P
enables you to plug straight in – and
print. The versatility and quality of Epson
impact printing is further extended by
ESC / P2 which enables Epson 24-pin
printers to achieve scalable fonts and
high resolution graphics.
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.
For full details of interfacing options
please refer to the options and
specifications tables at the back of this
brochure.
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.
Epson film ribbons are plastic, coated
on one side with ink to give clear, crisp
characters of letter quality output.
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.
