Printronix Introduces another TallyGenicom Innovation that Expands Advantages of Line Matrix Printing over Laser Technology

IRVINE, Calif., — Printronix Inc., a worldwide leader in business-critical printing solutions, today gave IT buyers worldwide yet another reason to select line matrix printing technology by introducing the TallyGenicom-branded 6800 series. With new flexible designs, adaptable functionality and manageable savings, the 6800 series proves again that line matrix is the most competitive technology for industrial environments. Line matrix is designed for users in manufacturing, distribution and logistics, government, banking and automotive who need to print invoices, shipment and transportation documentation, bank statements and product compliance labels. Users can expect maximum uptime, low total cost of ownership, a small footprint and reduced noise from the 6800.

“Our new 6800 series reflects the diverse global usage of line matrix technology today,” said Mark Edwards, senior vice president, global sales and marketing, Printronix. “IT leaders will value this new series, whether they are replacing installed legacy printers or embracing line matrix technology to reduce printing cost. Line matrix is still a mainstay solution, recognized as a flexible technology with improved user experience, local language functionality and operational efficiencies.”

Line Matrix Technology Trumps Laser in Industrial Printing
Line matrix cartridge printers offer significant benefits over laser printers, realized through energy savings, cost per page, reliability in industrial environments and media flexibility spanning multipart forms, oversize media, peel-off labels and card stock. Every aspect of the line matrix printer is designed to deliver higher reliability, 24/7 productivity, faster throughput and greater resistance to rough handling and hazardous environmental conditions. In addition to energy savings and substantially lower consumables cost, line matrix printers also have a much longer life cycle then laser printers.

“When you factor all these elements together, line matrix printers provide a substantially lower total cost of ownership over the life of the product,” Edwards said. “That’s why industry leading companies have replaced their laser printers with TallyGenicom’s line matrix technology and continue to reap the benefits.”
6800 Printer Packs Even Greater Punch

In a world of expensive-to-maintain laser printers, line matrix cartridge printing offers technologically superior relief. With the new 6800 series, Printronix pioneers advancements to make line matrix printing more competitive than ever with its TallyGenicom innovation:

Flexible Design. New modular enclosures improve reliability and occupy a smaller footprint while delivering location and installation flexibility. Keeping pace with today’s technology is easy with new USB 2.0 connectivity, a larger LCD screen and intuitive menu navigation system included as standard features.

Adaptable Functionality. The 6800 series features a broader selection of models, with the introduction of a Tabletop Printer and updates to TallyGenicom’s popular Enclosed Pedestal printer. Companies that require multiple-part forms will welcome PowerPrint™, a new feature that delivers improved print quality with increased clarity and darker print.

Manageable Savings. From its backward-compatible cartridge ribbon that reduces inventory management costs as well as ordering and installation confusion, to its remote diagnostics, the 6800 is a smart purchase. In addition, users save even more money through improved energy efficiency that lowers idle power consumption and boosts operating efficiency.

The new 6800 TallyGenicom-branded series from Printronix will begin shipping immediately and is available for ordering today. The series is competitively priced, with tabletop, open pedestal and cabinet models ranging between $5,600 and $21,000 USD, excluding options.
