Line Matrix Printers in Mission Critical Environments - Quiet Cabinet Models

P7000 Quiet Cabinet Cartridge Line Matrix Printer
So what we're looking at here would be what we call our Quiet Cabinet model. And this model is ideal for two particular attributes, one, it's very quiet, what happens is, this is actually a box designed to keep the sound in, it's all lined with foam. Even the door is lined with foam. It's got a seal just like on a refrigerator magnet that keeps all the sound inside here. So this is an ideal printer to put right next to where you might have people working say in an office environment or in a bank where the acoustics might be really important.
It has a second attribute that is very good, which is, it's designed for really printing a very large print job in one big batch, okay? So you have a big place you can put the storage paper in front, at the back of the printer we have a whole area where the paper can stack We have chains and guides that will actually guide the output stack into one tall neat output, so that this printer could very easily have an entire full box of paper put in, print a whole box, the box will be sitting in the waiting for you when you get it in one orderly stack, okay? Very good for high-end throughput applications, so this printer would usually be used anytime you need really the utmost in quietness or you're printing a very large volume of applications.
And in fact a testament to the overall reliability of these printers is, I have seen these models actually print where they will open up a gang plank coming out of the front, with stacks 5000 sheets high all daisy chained together, and they will slide this paper into this printer, this printer will run from eight o'clock in the morning until the end of the shift of the day without any break, and they will just print thousands and thousands sheets through the printer with no harm to the printer whatsoever.
