The print is crisp, sharp, dark and absolutely legible, thanks to the 24 pin print head.

Fully automatic operation instills operator confidence and virtually eliminates errors caused by poor user intervention. Front feed provides all the benefits of easy forms installation, coupled with reliable paper transport.
