Printronix, Inc. has launched its new TallyGenicom by Printronix branded printers, the first family of line matrix printers following the merger of the two brand names. The next generation TallyGenicom 600 series enables customers to benefit from reduced total cost of ownership, improved reliability, productivity and environmental efficiency, while seamlessly integrating into current work flow environments. All models in the 6600 series are Energy Star qualified and are fully compatible, direct replacements for earlier TallyGenicom printers.
"After over 30 years in the industry, we recognise that our customers are continually seeking operational improvements and cost efficiency from their industrial printing applications. With that in mind, the new TallyGenicom 6600 series incorporates 'The Power of Plus,' a series of innovations that add up to substantial reasons for business or industrial customers to upgrade, expand or replace their current printers. This includes improving the total cost of ownership dramatically through a 30 percent reduction in consumable cost per page." said Pendy Pendyala, vice president, global marketing, for Printronix Inc.
The TallyGenicom 6600 series by Printronix can be tailored for application in a diverse range of industries and environments where industrial printing is business-critical, including banking, manufacturing, warehousing, shipping and distribution centres. The family provides customers with unmatched durability, superior print quality and unrivalled total cost of ownership, and includes time-saving tools to enhance the customer experience. For example, the PrintNet Suite of tools to help supply chain professionals manage their worldwide print operations remotely, and the WebPanel for single printer management needs. Customers also have a choice of speeds, including 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 lines per minute. Flexible configurations enable customers to tailor each 6600 model to their individual requirements.
As a result of Printronix's innovation customers who choose the new 6600 printer series will experience a dramatic reduction in total cost of ownership compared to laser printers. In addition technology enhancements, including a patented cartridge design, deliver longer lasting ink and higher quality ribbon fabric to offer the highest page yield in the industry. The 'Extended Life' cartridge produces up to 30,000 printed pages per cartridge and maximises productivity through fewer ribbon changes and less IT support. An embedded microchip provides users with greater control over ribbon life, consumable costs and print quality. Improvements in media handling, paper stacking and the elimination of waste from multi-part forms further saves cost and improves operational efficiencies.
The 6600 series supports a variety of sustainability initiatives, continuing Printronix's leadership and commitment to reducing the environmental impact of industrial printing. The family is Energy Star qualified, providing operational energy savings compared to laser printers. Additional environmental advantages include: waste reduction, less packaging, accommodates paper with high recycled content, easier recycling of printed paper, ozone reduction, and none of the fine particulate emissions found in laser toner cartridges.
