Arrival of Dot Matrix Printer- the beginning of a revolution

By James Blee Subscribe to RSS | May 4th 2012 | Views:

The evolution of the printing technology took place rapidly. Printing has helped to produce books, documents and other such readable items more quickly and this has helped humans in various ways. Literacy has increased a lot throughout the world due to this boon of technology. The number of printers and cartridges available in the market these days are huge. One of the most famous ones of them is the dot matrix printer and it functions like a typewriter where the print head that runs in an up and down motion and the output comes on a piece of paper by impact striking a ribbon which remains soaked in ink..

The part of the printer that moves forward and produces text in one go is called the printer head. The highlight of dot matrix printer is its high resilience. The chance of their breakdown is minimal and happens only if there is some splitting of ink on to the guide plate and formation of grit which gets stuck. The grid does further damage by confining the channels in the guide plate to disfigure from circular print heads to oval shaped structures and thus the commands are not followed properly. There are various places where the technology used in the dot matrix printer is used like the ATMs, cash registers and mainly at sale workstations.

Another important aspect of the dot matrix printer is that it does not stop working when the amount of ink is less. The created shades are fader but it does not halt its activity just like most of the other printers. These machines are ideal in cases related to data logging. The cartridge has an ink ribbon which works for a long time, even if the printer is rarely used or used on a regular basis.
