Line Matrix Consumables

Cartridge Ribbons

Printronix P8000 / P7000 Cartridge Series of Line Matrix Printers provides competitive advantages. Through a series of engineering innovations, the P8000 / P7000 Series delivers improved reliability, productivity and environmental advantages.

  • LONGER LASTING INK = Fewer ribbon changes yield more productivity and contribute to a lower cost of ownership.
  • LEADING EDGE RIBBON TECHNOLOGY = Less IT interventions reduces downtime, with a patented ribbon jam prevention system. The high-density ribbon yields a longer life and a darker print quality.
  • EMBEDDED MICROCHIP = Provides precise, integrated control over ribbon life, print quality and operating costs. Productivity is improved by preventing interruptions of long print runs.
  • NEW COMPACT CARTRIDGE DESIGN = With the self-contained cartridge ribbon, changing ribbons is easier, cleaner and faster when compared to spool and laser printers.
  • ENVIRONMENTAL ADVANTAGE = Line matrix consumables are inherently greener than serial or laser printer consumables, and allow for printing on media with a higher percentage of recycled content.
  • BACKWARDS COMPATIBILITY = Ribbon cartridges for the P8000 are backwards compatible with P7000 Cartridge printers for reduced inventory management cost and simplified ordering.

Up to 20% Improvement In Consumable Cost Per Page

  • The cartridge ribbon does more with less, yielding a longer print life and more uniform quality than previous generation line matrix spool ribbons. The cartridge ribbon is easier and cleaner to use and requires no special user technical skills. As compared to laser technology, line matrix is far more sustainable in that it consumes considerably less energy, generates far less consumables waste, and lasts much longer.
