High-Quality Electronic
Forms On-the Fly!
A simple way to integrate electronic forms into your business
and save HUNDREDS of dollars:
• No changes to current applications
• No expensive special software
For other environments, forms management
is available using the printer’s control
panel menu.
Once a form is activated, normal data is sent to
the printer as if a preprinted form were loaded. The T3016 IGF
takes it from there – automatically merging the data with the form.
Tally’s authorized resellers will work with you to develop and
download your customized forms to the printer.

Tally’s T3016C SprintJet Printer Series: Tally introduces Spot Color
Add Emphasis with Spot Color!
Unique Printhead Design
With the introduction of the T3016C / T3016C IGF, Tally
is the first to incorporate color into industrial graphics
printing applications.
All T3016 models use two 128-nozzle Piezo print heads that
provide the extraordinary print speed and high resolution
output. The industrial strength Piezo print head has a
3 billion character life for long term reliable operation.
The use of spot color for industrial print applications is becoming
more common. Labels are easily grouped or differentiated by
color. Color highlights provide emphasis on reports, spot colored
logos, and make an impact on invoices and labels.
Sample Product

The T3016 ink cartridges are packaged in easy to replace
modules (40 Million character monochrome and 8 Million
character color). Tally’s proprietary oil-based ink produces
dark, high-quality images which dry to permanent in
less than one second.

The T3016C incorporates a second slot to add a color ink
cartridge in addition to the standard black cartridge.
Color selections include cyan, magenta, yellow, green, or red.
Because one of the print heads is dedicated to color and one
is dedicated to monochrome, the print speed for the T3016C
/ T3016C IGF models is 300 lines per minute or 8 PPM. This
is excellent throughput for processing high-quality documents
with a splash of color and at a low cost per page.
The T3016C / T3016C Windows drivers allow easy selection of
spot color in documents. For the industry standard industrial
graphics languages and other legacy applications that have not
supported color in the past, Tally has added unique color
commands for easy implementation in all environments.
Although not designed for continuous color printing, the spot
color feature offers industrial printing users a truly unique
tool to enhance their output by adding a single color highlight.
The T3016 family of products offers ultimate in versatility. Various configurations can be ordered
from the factory to provide the ideal solution for your application.
