Bixolon also offers dot matrix printers that are suitable for billings and other applications that require printing on continuous paper or multipart forms. Dot matrix printers use a matrix of pins to create characters and images by striking an inked ribbon against the paper, producing reliable and long-lasting prints.
Bixolon's dot matrix printers for billings typically support various connectivity options, including USB and parallel (often referred to as LPT) interfaces. The USB connection allows you to connect the printer directly to a computer or other compatible device using a USB cable, while the parallel interface is useful for connecting to older computer systems or specialized billing equipment that still utilize parallel connections.
These dot matrix printers often have features designed specifically for billing applications, such as:
High-speed printing: Dot matrix printers can print at relatively high speeds, enabling quick and efficient printing of bills and invoices.
Multiple-part printing: They can handle multipart forms, allowing you to print multiple copies of a bill or invoice simultaneously, with carbon copies or additional copies for record-keeping.
Wide carriage: Dot matrix printers with a wide carriage can accommodate larger paper sizes, which is useful when printing detailed bills or invoices that require a larger format.
Reliable paper handling: They often have mechanisms to handle continuous paper or multipart forms with precision, ensuring accurate alignment and avoiding paper jams.
To use a Bixolon dot matrix printer for billings, you would typically install the necessary printer drivers and software on your computer or device. The printer drivers enable your operating system to communicate with the printer, while the software provides control and configuration options for the printer, allowing you to set up the desired printing parameters for your billing needs.
