Line Matrix vs. Laser Printer Technology

Line Matrix printers have significant benefits over laser printers in terms of energy savings, cost per page, consumables waste, reliability in industrial environments and media flexibility (multi-part forms, oversize media, peel-off labels or card stock).

Every aspect of the line matrix printer is designed to deliver superior reliability, fast throughput, and non-stop performance amidst a wide range of industrial environments (hot, cold, humid, dusty, etc.). The result is a product that lasts longer, demands less user intervention, is more environmentally friendly and provides a substantially lower cost of ownership. See the comparison below:

Printer Components P8000 Line Matrix Laser
Initial acquisition cost Good Excellent
Operating Costs Excellent Poor
Single sheet delivery Yes Yes
Proper functioning in hot/cold or humid/dry Excellent Poor
Resistance to airborne contaminants Excellent Poor
Ruggedness – ability to withstand abuse Excellent Poor
Page volume Unlimited Limited
Barcode quality Good Excellent
Print quality Good Excellent
Suitability for mission critical applications Excellent Good (Depending on Environment)

 

Line Matrix vs. Serial Dot Matrix Printer Technology

Buying a line matrix printer instead of a serial matrix printer has significant benefits, both in terms of operating cost and reliability. A line matrix printer represents a significant upgrade in equipment quality.

Every aspect of the line matrix printer is designed to deliver higher reliability, faster throughput, and greater resistance to rough handling and varying environmental conditions. Additionally, investing in line matrix is a smart financial choice as not only will it outlast a serial printer, but will also demand less user intervention and in most cases will yield a lower overall cost of ownership. See the comparison below:

Printer Components P8000 Line Matrix Dot Matrix or Serial Matrix
Initial acquisition cost Good Excellent
Operating Costs Excellent Poor
Single sheet delivery Yes Yes
Proper functioning in hot/cold or humid/dry Excellent Good
Resistance to airborne contaminants Excellent Good
Ruggedness – ability to withstand abuse Excellent Poor
Page volume Unlimited Limited
Print quality Good Good
Suitability for mission critical applications Excellent Good
