The Printek FormsPro 4503 printer is a heavy duty dot matrix printer. The FormsPro 4503 is a high-speed printer. It has been specifically designed for printing on hard to print forms (multi-part) which are often not printed adequately by other printers.  

All models provide straight paper paths for jam-free paper motion and a zero waste tear bar for demand document applications. 

You can permanently record up to ten complete sets of form parameters, which may then be selected either at the printer's control panel or from the host computer. The FormsPro 4503 provides three sets of tractors, any of which may be selected in the form parameters for a particular form. This allows the printer to automatically unload one form and load another when it is selected either via the front panel buttons or a software command from the host computer. When loading forms, the printer will automatically adjust the print head position to match the thickness of the newly loaded form. 

Some of the Features of the FormsPro 4503 are:  

  • Tractor System.   The FormsPro 4503 has the Tri-Trak system with three sets of straight-through tractors.
  • High-Speed for High-Volume Printing.  With a draft speed up to 530 cps,FormsPro printers can print a typical 1,000 character document in less than five seconds.  That's over 700 documents per hour. 
  • Waste-Free Forms Tear-Off.   After you tear off a form, the next is automatically positioned for printing.
  • Superior Legibility-Even on 9-Part Forms.  Auto-Gap feature adjusts the print head according to form thickness.
  • Trouble-Free Forms Handling.   Easy-Load tilt-up top simplifies loading, and straight-up paper path eliminates the problem of forms buckling and jamming.  Paper jam sensor permits reliable, unattended operation.
  • Automatic Page Edge Sensor.   Optical sensor prevents print head from printing beyond the edges of the loaded form.
  • Stores Parameters for Up to 10 Forms.  Spacing, margins, font and 11 other parameters are set using four front panel buttons.  Options are displayed on a 16-character LCD.  Once you've set the parameters for a form, they can be stored and recalled at any time.
  • Ruggedly Built for Reliable Operation. FormsPro printers are designed to withstand 100% duty cycles. 

All models of Printek printers offer straight-through paper paths for reliable forms handling.  All print head adjustments and form alignments are handled automatically-leaving no guess work.  Jam detection is standard.  Extra attention to details such as a ribbon-wear indicator, and downloadable configurations add up to the most foolproof printers in the business.  It's why 98% of Printek registered customers recommend our printers to others.   

Printek is the recognized leader in forms printing innovations over the past decade.  Printek's unique contributions include:  

  • 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 print head 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.
