Tally Dascom T2440/9 Matrix Printer


DASCOM T2440/9

Up to 500 cps


DASCOM‘s mid range serial matrix printers include the T2440/9 series products. These printers feature great ergonomics as the paper is front loaded rather than installed in the rear. With automatic top of form and zero tear the printers are easy to set up with no wasted forms.

The products are ideal for back office applications which include retail, local government, hospitals, warehousing and distribution. They include printing labels, shipping documents and multipart forms. Both 9 and 24 pin models are available for different print quality requirements; narrow and wide format machines offer the choices of small footprint and diverse range of forms. In line with market demands, the new printers are quieter and easier to use than competitive products in their class. All products support graphics and barcodes.
