Printek PrintMaster 860 and 862 series
Fully refurbished with 1-year warranty
The PrintMaster 860 Series printer is a narrow format dot matrix printer expressly designed for heavy workloads. Flexible paper feeding from the rear or bottom makes the printer ideal for applications where space is at a premium.
Print Speed and Paper Slew Rate
The PrintMaster 860 Series has a fast draft of 530 cps and regular draft speed of 400 cps with a paper slew rate up to 12 ips that provides exceptional throughput.
All forms automatically position for easy tear-off, saving time, money and material on all print jobs.
Print jobs can be easily recovered in the event of a fault condition with the page reprint feature.
Paper is automatically loaded from another tractor if a paper out condition occurs. This feature is only available in PrintMaster 862.
A rear-feed single tractor is standard. The PrintMaster 862 has a bottom-feed tractor, giving you added printing options.
A metal pedestal is also available from Printek for effective use of both tractors. Flexible Connectivity Serial and parallel ports, along with popular emulations and bar codes, are all standard. An optional internal Ethernet interface with unique forms management features is available, as well as interfaces for legacy systems. Easy Setup Printer configurations can be selected directly through the front panel, remotely through our Remote Printer Setup Software package, or through an optional plug-in module. Parameters for up to 10 form profiles can be stored and recalled at any time.
Options and accessories that are available for the PrintMaster 860 Series include: internal Ethernet for network forms printing, a metal pedestal for optimizing the use of both tractors when printing, and a setup module for easy configuration of multiple printers.
The 862’s Dual-Trak paper handling system allows two forms to be loaded at all times.
