Line Printers
T6218 Line Matrix
Cutting-Edge Innovation with Time-Tested Technology.
Mission-Critical Impact Printing.
The T6218 Line matrix printer is a ground-breaking solution for
high-volume, mission-critical impact printing. Cutting-edge
innovation and time-tested technology are combined to make the
T6218 superior in speed, reliability, and quality. At 1800 lines per
minute (LPM), it actually outperforms line printers rated at higher
speeds when printing in "real world" applications. Outstanding
throughput is made possible by technological advancements to the
hammer bank and paper feed system.
Forms Handling Benefits
Four-tractor system allows high slew speeds, accurate forms
tensioning, forms reversal capability, and steel tractor pins in upper
tractors for reduced wear, longer life. Straight-through paper path is
designed for excellent, uncompromising forms handling.
Patented Smart Ribbon.
The patented Smart Ribbon 250 offers clean-hands ribbon cartridge
convenience while delivering new ribbon quality over its entire 250
million character life-the longest life in the industry
