The IBM 20 Printer family offers speed, reliability, and durability that make it the right choice for the most demanding print environments and applications. With print speeds of up to 600 characters per second, dependable model, and superb reliability, the IBM 20 Printer outperforms other impact printers. Depending on the model, the IBM 20 Printers offer either a coaxial, twinaxial, coaxial/ASCII or twinaxial/ASCII attachment. This flexibility provides a wide range of printer placement options. The IBM 20's compact size and low noise level make it well suited to serve either as a high-speed office printer, a heavy-duty primary printer for small systems and LAN installations or a workstation printer for larger systems and LANs. The near letter quality mode provides clean, crisp correspondence for word processing applications required in today's electronic office.
Here is a review of the Top 5 Features of this product:
User Benefits- The IBM 20 Printer is a rugged, heavy-duty, dot matrix, impact printer that offers excellent performance. It brings the benefits and the productivity features usually provided by higher-cost system printers down to the workstation environment. This means users could switch instantly from one application to another and thereby improve user productivity and eliminate adjustment errors.
Improved Productivity- The IBM 20 Printer with its auto-form load, innovative form handling features, easy-to-use operator controls, and menu selections would improve productivity and virtually eliminate user frustration regarding paper jam and costly paper loss. The IBM 20 prints a wide range of applications by offering four print speeds and quality modes. The fast draft quality provides high speed for large print jobs.
Versatile Form Handling- The ability to use cut sheet paper allows full advantage of NLQ printing on letterhead paper for business correspondence applications. The automatic form-thickness adjustment feature saves users from having to manually adjust print head gap and ensures consistent, high-quality form printing and improved print head reliability. Additionally interchangeable paper feed modules permit the IBM 20 printer to be easily adapted to a variety of different form applications including pre printed multi-part forms, labels card stock checks, and mailer forms to name a few.
More Powerful Control Unit- The AFCCU is based on IBM's recognized RISC technology and this advanced control unit supports IBM printers as diverse as the IBM 3935 Advanced Function Printer, the IBM 3900 Wide Advanced Function Printers, and the IBM 3900 Advanced Function Duplex Printing Systems. Besides providing additional attachment flexibility, the AFCCU improves the performance of the most complex jobs. This new generation control unit now includes capabilities that were featured in earlier control units such as Advanced Function Image and Graphics and Decompression Performance Enhancement.
Productivity- Additional functions are implemented through the Intelligent Printer Data Stream (IPDS), the IBM function-rich data stream intended for use with all-points-addressable printers. These functions include the system management of resources such as font’s images and electronic forms, exceptional error recovery, and accurate accounting information. These IPDS capabilities in conjunction with the AFCCU allow your operations staff to be more productive.
The IBM Printing Systems Division offers a new, low-cost, standard for distributed production, cut sheet printing. The IBM Infoprint 20 Printer is an intermediate speed, highly reliable, cut sheet, duplex printer.
