IBM® InfoPrint® Line Printer Replacement

Please click play on the video below to see how the SOLID F40 is superior to using a impact line printer.

SOLID F40 Continuous-Form Laser Printer: the fast, quiet, and high quality alternative to IBM InfoPrint line matrix printers

Faster, quieter, more cost-effective, with consistently high quality print, thereby reduce costs - is this possible?

YES with Microplex SOLID F40!


Line printers with impact printing technology is absolutely justified when it comes to printing NCR documents with multiple copies. However, this printing technology quickly reaches speed limits when graphics print quality is required. An example would be Linear and 2D barcodes. As the ribbon in line printers is depleted the printing quality decreases, resulting in unreadable barcodes. This often leads to problems within barcode print production resulting in time loss and cost intensive rework.

Since the invention of line printer technology the requirements for professional printing of logistics documents, labels and production relevant papers have significantly changed. Higher print quality is required for printing more graphics and 2 dimensional barcodes. 

The alternative to IBM InfoPrint line matrix printers

Microplex offers an alternative solution with the SOLID range of continuous-form laser printers with printing speeds of 40 pages per minute up to 166 pages per minute. Thanks to the Microplex Multi-Intelligence Controller ,not only can you print from your existing data but because of the increase in quality, the performance of your solution or your customer’s application is also improved.

Line matrix printer in comparison to Microplex SOLID F40:

The Microplex continuous laser printers, for example the SOLID F40, can also print complex variable data that contains many barcodes, while maintaining the maximum speed. Contrary, most line matrix printers reduce printing speed to achieve slightly better print quality. Therefore, the SOLID F40 increases print production, while maintaining high 600 dpi print quality.
