Why buy an impact printer?

An impact printer has several advantages over any other type of printer:

  1. Low cost - both in purchase price and low cost of ownership
  2. Flexible paper handling - only impact printers can handle multi-part forms and multiple paper paths that can all have paper loaded and waiting.
  3. Reliability - EPSON impact printers are renowned for their reliability with tireless printheads and superior quality ribbons.

Impact printers are either 9- or 24-pin, which determines the type of printing and the number of multi-part forms that the printer is capable of printing.

Nine-pin impact printers  - These printers have the sturdiest printhead pins. The pins hit the paper hard to make impressions through the thickest multi-part forms. They also offer the fastest print speeds, printing from high speed draft up to near letter quality.

Twenty-four-pin impact printers - These printers have finer printhead pins. The pins hit the paper less hard to make impressions through most multi-part forms. They also offer finer letter quality printing. Print speeds vary from high speed draft up to letter quality.

The name of an Epson impact printer tells you if it is a 9- or a 24-pin printer, and whether it has a narrow or wide carriage:

  • Nine-pin printers all begin with FX, LX, or DFX
  • Twenty-four pin printers all begin with LQ
  • Wide carriage printers have 4 number in their names
  • Narrow carriage printers have 3 numbers in their names
