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.
  • CARTRIDGE RIBBON 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 greener than serial or laser printer consumables, and are able to print on papers and forms 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

  • In comparison to the previous generation line matrix spool ribbon, cartridge ribbons are a major improvement. The cartridge ribbon does more with less, yielding a longer print life and a more uniform print quality. It is easier to use, cleaner and requires no special user technical skills, reducing labor costs. And compared to laser technology, line matrix offers far better environmental advantages by producing less waste.
