Latest Line Matrix Printer Family Combines Strength and Flexibility of Industrial Printing with Graphic Performance Needed within Modern ERP Environments
IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Printronix, Inc., the worldwide leader in business-critical printing solutions, today launched the world’s first PostScript and PDF® line matrix printer through the introduction of its new OpenPrint™ technology. Compatible with today’s modern enterprise resource planning (ERP) environments, including Oracle®, SAP®, Linux and Windows®, OpenPrint is now enabled on Printronix’s P7000 High Definition (HD) Cartridge Series of Line Matrix Printers. This marks the first time that a high volume, mission critical printer technology has been brought to market combining the flexibility and enhanced graphic performance of PostScript and PDF with the unmatched reliability, the lowest cost of printing and unique environmental advantages of line matrix printers.
“Printronix’s breakthrough OpenPrint platform offers our customers an unprecedented opportunity to implement the industrial strength of line matrix technology within most ERP environments,” said Mark Edwards, senior vice president, global sales and marketing, for Printronix, Inc. “The easy and instant connectivity of PostScript and PDF files enables IT administrators to quickly deploy new forms and business documents to their Printronix line matrix printers in environments using business critical ERP software.”
Support of Major Operating Systems Offers Highest Level of Connectivity and Productivity
OpenPrint supports fail-proof printing for manufacturing, banking, supply chain and back office users with advanced graphics controllable from any major graphical user interface (GUI) design program. The OpenPrint™ P7000HD family of line matrix printers produce scannable bar codes, high quality text and fonts - from six point to poster size - within the printer, resulting in enhanced form readability and utility. The introduction of PostScript and PDF capabilities allows line matrix users to continue to rely on Printronix printers when migrating to modern IT environments, without requiring complicated network installed print drivers.
Cost-Effective Replacements for High Speed Serial Dot Matrix and Laser Printers
Printronix’s OpenPrint line matrix printers are superior performers in mission critical high speed print applications, even in harsh working environments. The latest OpenPrint-enabled P7000HD Series models require less downtime and maintenance for cartridge ribbon changes. The result is more uptime with lower service and operating costs. Line matrix cartridge consumables last longer and are six times less expensive than laser toner cartridges. This is especially important in production environments where consumable costs dominate the total cost of ownership. As printing volume increases, line matrix’s consumable savings grow dramatically.
Unique Environmental Advantages
The OpenPrint P7000HD Cartridge Series of Line Matrix Printers is ENERGY STAR® qualified, providing operational energy savings compared to laser printers. Additional environmental advantages include: less consumable waste, use of high recycled content paper, easier recycling of printed paper, less ozone depletion and none of the fine particulate emissions found in laser toner cartridges. In addition, the OpenPrint Printronix P7000HD Cartridge Family is engineered to last for years. This is a key ecological benefit over shorter life cycle products such as laser and serial printers.
“With OpenPrint, users can count on the high reliability performance and low cost of operation of line matrix, now with the clarity and ease-of-use they have come to expect from PostScript and PDF ERP printing,” said Edwards.
The Printronix OpenPrint P7000HD Family of High Definition Line Matrix Printers includes:
OpenPrint technology, available through Printronix P7000HD Cartridge Series of Line Matrix Printers, will launch January 31, 2012. To locate the nearest Printronix Regional Sales Office go to Printronix.com.
