  • Tri-Trak, our patented system of loading three continuous forms in a straight-through path
  • Auto-Scroll, waste-free tear-off for demand document printing
  • Floating printhead shield, which adjusts to perforation and imperfections
  • Setup cloning, which enables the user to easily transfer setup parameters from one Printek printer to another
  • Page reprint, which allows print jobs to be recovered in the event of a fault condition
