Desktop Impact Printing With the FP5000

While most simple print jobs are handled by commodity inkjet printers, or small office/workgroup laser printers, there still exists a need for a heavy duty impact printer in situations which require one or more of the following:

  • Multi part forms
  • High duty cycle
  • Continuous operation
  • Industrial operation

If you have a multipart form, without impact, nothing will make it past the first layer of the form. Most inkjet and laser printers are too costly to run hundreds or thousands of pages through a day, and are not built for that kind of 24/7 activity. They also tend to fail in industrial environments like factories, docks, warehouses, etc.

If any of these are a concern, impact printing is cheaper, more durable, has a higher duty cycle, and longer lifespan. If you are interested in a desktop form factor solution for your impact printer needs, check out the Printek FP-5000 series printers.
