The Printek FormsPro 4603 Dot Matrix Printer with Standard Serial/Parallel Interfaces and combined Wireless Ethernet/ImagerPlus Graphics Interfaces can solve your toughest printing problems and automate most paper-handling functions. This printer allows three different set of tractors to be loaded at one time, each capable of a different form. With the FormsPro 4603 printer, you will print with greater legibility and unsurpassed reliability.

The FormsPro 4603 features:

  • A draft speed up to 530 cps, which prints a typical  1,000-character document in less than five seconds.  That's over 700  documents per hour.
  • Auto-switching power supply-can work domestically and internationally, and it weighs less.
  • FormsPro 4603 has the patented Tri-Trak system that allows for three different set of tractors  to be loaded.
  • Superior legibility-even on 9-part forms. Auto-Gap feature adjusts the printhead according to form thickness.
  • Easy-load, tilt-up top to simplify loading, and straight-up paper path eliminates the problem of forms buckling and jamming.
  • A paper jam sensor to permit reliable, unattended operation.
  • Optical sensor prevents printhead from printing beyond the edges of the loaded form.

Ability to print 9-part forms. FormsPro printers have 30% higher  impact force than other brands, making them the preferred choice for  situations where thick forms and multi-part legibility are an issue. 

Tri-Trak System

The Printek model FormsPro 4603 has the patented Tri-Trak  system. This is the only paper-feeding system on the market that allows  three different continuous forms to be loaded into one printer. This  feature saves a great deal of unproductive time spent loading and  unloading forms and also saves space and computer ports.
