Printronix, the leading integrated supply-chain printing solutions manufacturer, today introduced the P7000 line matrix family, which expands upon Printronix's Leadership By Design corporate branding and product development initiative. The P7000 line matrix platform supersedes Printronix's existing P5000 series.
"The No. 1 reason our customers continue to select line matrix technology is reliability; no other technology delivers more trouble-free, high-volume printing than a Printronix line matrix printer," said Andrew V. Scherz, Printronix's line matrix product marketing director. "Printronix created the line matrix printing platform in 1974 with the introduction of the P300. Since then, Printronix has advanced product capabilities with each new generation - delivering a product that is higher in quality and more reliable than its predecessor. The P7000 platform, with a range of design refinements, carries forward this tradition. It's the most reliable Printronix printer ever created. The result is more uptime, more mission critical dependability and lower service costs."
Lowest Cost of Printing Lowered: Ultra Capacity Ribbons
Printronix designed the P7000 series to be the most cost-efficient line matrix printing series available. The company invested significantly in the design and testing of new fabrics, ink formulations and constructions to develop new consumables. Suitable for both text and bar code applications, the new patented P7000 Ultra Capacity ribbon starts 20 percent darker and last three times longer than Printronix's most popular 30 million character ribbons. With a 90 million character rated life, the number of printer interventions are significantly reduced. In addition to the labor savings from reduced consumable handling, the efficiency of this new design results in an even lower cost per page.
Automatically Track Ribbon Life: Integrated Print Management System
Changing ribbons too frequently wastes money while changing them infrequently produces inconsistent or unusable output - and constantly monitoring the print quality manually is the biggest waste of all, Scherz points out. Without introducing any additional labor or set up, the new P7000 Integrated Printing Management System monitors and communicates ribbon life automatically. The system offers:
Automatic ribbon life tracking
Job control - Know when or if there is enough supplies for a given job
Print image quality control
Consumable usage tracking - The types and volumes of everything used
Remote visibility and control via PrintNet(r) Enterprise.
