Epson releases new models of dot matrix printers the LX-310 and the LQ-310. Both boast of improved features such as flexible connectivity with their built-in multiple interfaces (USB, Serial, Parallel) and increased reliability of Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) of 10,000 Power-On Hours. The new models too feature more compact designs.
Along with the release of the new dot matrix printers, Epson Philippines also encourages everyone to share their cherished experiences in using their trusty Epson dot matrix printer. Owners of Epson’s dot matrix printers have a chance to win an Epson LW-400 label printer just by giving feedback to the digital imaging leader.
Users of Epson dot matrix printers can go to the company’s website, give a rating for the dot matrix printer they use, and share their experience with the product. Five participants will be chosen at random (“Sweepstakes”) as winners, and each winner will receive an Epson LW-400 Labelworks printer.
The Sweepstakes is open to any person who owns or uses an Epson dot matrix printer, whether at home or at work, within the Philippines. Ownership and usage of the printer shall be verified via the participant’s submission of the product serial number. Each product serial number can only be submitted once.
Epson pioneered the dot matrix printer and has improved on the product significantly throughout the years.
The dot matrix printer continues to be a reliable partner in accounting departments or other businesses that require applications for multiple copies or carbon copies that have to be printed simultaneously, such as receipts, tickets or invoices. This is a special function that laser and ink-jet printers cannot accomplish.
Businesses, especially in Asia and Latin America, continue to rely on this ultra-durable printer with its generally strident mechanism that can be heard all over a productive work area.
“Epson dot matrix printers have been constantly improved throughout the years to be responsive to current needs. This unbeatable printing partner continuous to evolve and remains to be an important printing solution in both corporate and government segments, banks, retail, logistics, and hotels,” explained Thea Austria, Epson Philippines’ Head of Business System printers.
The dot matrix uses a matrix of small pins to strike an ink ribbon and create precise dots on the page. The print head strikes an ink-soaked cloth ribbon against the paper, much like the print mechanism on a typewriter. However, unlike a typewriter or daisy wheel printer, letters are drawn out of a dot matrix, and thus, varied fonts and arbitrary graphics can be produced.
