Dot Matrix Printers
The dot matrix printer (or impact printer) is a type of printer with print heads that move from left to right printing on a page through the impact of striking an inked ribbon. They utilize print heads on which gratings are combinations that reproduce characters, symbols and images formed by dots in a boxlike drawing. These machines entered the labor market to replace daisy wheel printers and typewriters and are still used widely today in many industries due to their durability and low cost of maintaining. Dot matrix printers are still a great value for many businesses, especially for those who want devices that are robust and do not need much supervision by an operator.
A dot matrix printer is capable of printing from 280 characters to 1066 characters per second. It has the advantage that you can make multiple copies simultaneously with carbon paper, or many new models have the ability to print onto single sheets of paper.
Unlike other impact printers, such as the daisy wheel printer, dot matrix printers can change fonts and create characters in bold and italics, without the need to change a print wheel. The print quality is determined by the number of pins, ranging from 9 to 32. They have been supplanted by better technology in homes; however, they are still used by companies because of the low costs involved
