Enhancing an already reliable line of printers
Today’s rapidly changing business environment requires reliable printing solutions that meet the increasing demands for effi ciency and manageability associated with high-volume printing applications. While some companies are facing increased operating expenses and reliability concerns as a result of switching to laser printing solutions, many others continue to leverage the proven value of industrial impact printers.
The IBM Infoprint® 6500 line of printers offers reliable high performance printing in virtually any offi ce or supply-chain environment, as well as support for a wide range of media types—all with a low total cost of ownership. Providing printing at speeds up to 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 lines per minute (lpm),1 the Infoprint 6500 family is a featurerich, versatile suite of impact printers that is available in an open pedestal or enclosed cabinet design. Models with enclosed cabinets provide acoustic levels that are quieter than many laser printers. The open pedestal design minimizes fl oor space requirements and optimizes access to forms. Feature and functionality upgrades to both designs further improve these already reliable and effi cient printers.
Enabling proactive printer monitoring to boost efficiency
The IBM Printer Management Utility, included with the optional 10/100Base T Ethernet card, enables you to take advantage of capabilities such as automatic e-mail notifi cation of printer messages to appropriate operators, as well as real-time printer status. With the Printer Management Utility, print operators can also download settings to multiple printers and remotely access the full functionality of the multilingual operator panel.
Featuring an intelligent ribbon system, Infoprint 6500 printers can alert users when a new ribbon is needed and then automatically reset the Ribbonminder once a new ribbon is installed. Operators can also set the Ribbonminder to stop printing at the point where output becomes unacceptable—thereby helping both to ensure quality and to eliminate costly reprints. With the Infoprint 6500 family of printers, you can take advantage of an optional integrated wireless Ethernet interface. Additionally, increased processing power and enhanced Microsoft® Windows® drivers deliver improved output performance, especially when printing barcodes, graphics or overlays.
Providing a user-friendly design
The Infoprint 6500 family of printers features a high-function, multilingual operator interface with built-in attention light, blue touch-point controls and an auto-platen stop recall device, which helps to ensure the proper gap adjustment following a forms reload. Enhancements to the pedestal design also include increased accessibility for ribbon loading and heavy-duty casters for improved mobility.
