PSi Matrix GmbH has subjected two of its models to a tuning process, which have achieved an increase in printing speed, making it possible to print up to 470 lines per minute at 60 characters per line.
The results of the performance tuning are two new models: PP 407 LPM and PP 408 LPM. An essential factor to reach the performance increase of more than 10% was the tuning of the 24-needle-print head, comparable with a turbocharger.
PSi Matrix has not only closed the comparison gap to line printers, but even surpasses them in speed in certain applications. The demand for matrix printers with even higher print speed comes first of all from the area of transport logistics, where loading lists and accompanying documents have to be printed as fast as possible, so that no waiting times arise for the drivers, and furthermore in the automotive industry, where printouts have to run synchronously with predetermined cycle times on assembly lines.
A further highlight of the PSi PP 408 LMP printer is the integrated cutting function, which allows users to separate print jobs or to cut each page to optimise post-processing as best as possible.
