An impact printer also known as a dot matrix printer was used as the proverbial workhouse, largely because of its reliability. They are so called because of the tiny rod strokes with an ink soaked ribbon that is used to make the impressions on the paper. There are quite a few companies like Lexmark and Epson which are still manufacturing these printers. The printers are particularly used because of their reliability and durability. However, one of the factors that act against these printers is that they are not as fast or as quiet as some of the other printers that have been developed recently.

You can purchase a dot matrix printer that can provide multi strike function. These printers do not have delicate or expensive parts. This allows those with budget constraints to make use of it. Retail stores, factories and other places where you need bills or invoices printed out, are ideal places for this kind of a printer. Some years ago, printers used to slow and made loud rattling noise. On the contrary, today printers come with dampeners to lower the sound, but they would cost slightly more than the normal printer.

dot matrix printer provides an economical option when there are a large number of papers to be printed out. For bulk printing, the costs associated with these printers are extremely low. A major advantage offered by these printers is that carbon copies can be made of the original sheet if required. Owing to the pressure on the ribbon, it is sometimes possible to print out as many as seven carbon copies to go with the original print. When receipts are to be printed out, this printer is ideal for the same reason.
