Ballistic wire printersStored energy printersDot matrix printers can either be character-based or line-based that is, a single horizontal series of pixels across the pagereferring to the configuration of the print head. Such printers normally had either 9 or 24 pins on the print head early 7 pin printers also existed, which did not print descenders.

There was a period during the early home computer era when a range of printers were manufactured under many brands such as the Commodore VIC using the Seikosha Uni-Hammer system. This used a single solenoid with an oblique striker that would be actuated 7 times for each column of 7 vertical pixels while the head was moving at a constant speed. The angle of the striker would align the dots vertically even though the head had moved one dot spacing in the time. The Brother DCP-150C XML Paper Specification Printer dot position was controlled by a synchronised longitudinally ribbed platen behind the paper that rotated rapidly with a rib moving vertically seven dot spacings in the time it took to print one pixel column. Once the price of inkjet printers dropped to the point where they were competitive with dot matrix printers, dot matrix printers began to fall out of favour for general use.

Some dot matrix printers, such as the NEC P, can be upgraded to print in colour. This is achieved through the use of a four-colour ribbon mounted on a mechanism provided in an upgrade kit that replaces the standard black ribbon mechanism after installation that raises and lowers the ribbons as needed. Colour graphics Brother DCP-150C XML Paper Specification Printer generally printed in four passes at standard resolution, thus slowing down printing considerably. As a result, colour graphics can take up to four times longer to print than standard monochrome graphics, or up to times as long at high resolution mode. Dot matrix printers are still commonly used in low-cost, low-quality applications such as cash registers, or in demanding, very high volume applications like invoice printing.

Impact printing, unlike laser printing, allows the pressure of the print head to be applied to a stack of two or more forms to print multi-part documents such as sales invoices and credit card receipts using continuous stationery with carbonless copy paper.


Dot-matrix printers were being superseded even as receipt printers after the end of the twentieth century. Line printerLine printers print an entire line of text at a time. Four principal designs exist. Print drum from drum printerDrum printers, where a horizontally mounted rotating drum carries the entire character Brother DCP-150C XML Paper Specification Printer of the printer repeated in each printable character position. The IBM printer is an example of a drum printer.

Drum printers are also found in adding machines and other numeric printers Brother DCP-150C XML Paper Specification Printerthe dimensions are compact as only a dozen characters need to be supported. The IBM is perhaps the most popular, and comes in both chain and train varieties. The band printer is a later variant where the characters are embossed on a flexible steel band. Bar printers, where the character set is attached to a solid bar that moves horizontally along the print line, such as the IBM Each bar contains the character set to be printed. The bars moves vertically to position the character to be printed in front of the print hammer.


The paper presses forward against a ribbon which then presses against the character form and the impression of the character form is printed onto the Brother DCP-150C XML Paper Specification Printer. Each system could have slight timing issues, which could cause minor misalignment of the resulting printed characters. For drum or typebar printers, this appeared as vertical misalignment, with characters being printed slightly above or below the rest of the line. In chain or bar printers, the misalignment was horizontal, with printed characters being crowded closer together or farther apart. This was much less noticeable to human vision than vertical misalignment, where characters seemed to bounce up and down in the line, so they were considered as higher quality print.

Comb printers, also called line matrix printers, represent the fifth major design.

These printers are a hybrid of dot matrix printing and line printing. In these printers, a comb of hammers prints a portion of a row of pixels at one time, such as every eighth pixel.

By shifting the comb back and forth slightly, the entire pixel row can be printed, continuing the example, in just eight cycles. The paper then advances and the next pixel row is printed. Because far less motion is involved than in a conventional dot matrix printer, these printers are very Brother DCP-150C XML Paper Specification Printer compared to dot matrix printers and are competitive in speed with formed-character line printers while also being able to print dot Brother DCP-150C XML Paper Specification Printer graphics.
