Upgrade IBM 6400 with Printronix P8220, the 2000 LPM Top End of the Printronix P8000 Family
We can supply the great new Printronix P8220 printers.
The top of the line Printronix P8220 model is the fastest new line matrix impact printer in existence today.
The quiet cabinet model Printronix P8220, sometimes called by the model name Printronix P8C20 (‘C’ for Cabinet) is a low sound emission 55 dBA line printer for reliable and unobtrusive production printing.
The P8220 and the Printronix P8215 (1500 LPM) are the most popular models for serious bulk printing of mission-critical output.
The Printronix P8220 has proven to be a tough workhorse in the field, and handles large loads of high importance mission critical batch printing. Contact GLM Group to evaluate this tool for your key printing requirements.
REPAIR ISSUES on 6400 and P5000:
- Print Shuttles used to get completely rebuilt by Printronix for IBM 6400 and Printronix P5000 units. No longer is this available.
- Spare Inventory of new Ribbon Masks and Ribbon Hubs at Printronix are now gone.
- Ricoh RPPS and their outsource service partner Fuji (a.k.a. CE Services) do not have a ‘special deal’ with Printronix for parts.
- Ricoh dropped Printronix as a sales partner in 2011.
There is no special accommodation for Ricoh/Fuji. As well Ricoh/Fuji have not, to our knowledge, shared the severity of this 6400 situation with their maintenance install base other than to say that there are plenty of spare parts. Sure there are — and RPPS will still write a contract on an ancient IBM 6262 by scavenging used old parts from other old 6262 carcasses.
