Line Matrix vs. Laser

Line Matrix vs. Laser

Line Matrix printers have significant benefits over laser printers in terms of energy savings, cost per page, consumables waste, reliability in industrial environments and media flexibility (multi-part forms, oversize media, peel off labels or card stock).

Every aspect of the line matrix printer is designed to deliver superior reliability, fast throughput, and non-stop performance amidst a wide range of industrial environments (hot, cold, humid, dusty, etc.). The result is a product that lasts longer, demands less user intervention, is more environmentally friendly and provides a substantially lower cost of ownership. See the comparison below:
