Compuprint 4247-Z03

The IBM 4247 never was really “BUILT BY IBM”!
They were all manufactured to IBM’s specifications by the Italian company Compuprint.

Compuprint continues to offer the very same products that they built for IBM, available as the Compuprint 4247 Family.

The top of the line is the tough 4247-Z03. Many customers favor the 4247-Z03, the toughest and highest speed of the three models available. Also available from Compuprint are the 4247-X03 and 4247-L03, described at the bottom of this webpage.

Line Printer Replacement Option

Q: How is the Compuprint 4247-Z03 like the fleet of Southwest Airlines planes?

A: They are both 737’s!

With the Compuprint 4247-Z03 rating of up to 1100 characters per second,
the speed equates to 737 LINES PER MINUTE.
