Tally T6180 Matrix Line Printer - 1,800 LPM

Tally T6180 Shuttle Matrix / Line Matrix PrinterHigh Speed Industrial Line Printer for Demanding Applications

:  The T6180 Line Printer has been discontinued.
The replacement product is the TallyGenicom 6800 Series of Line Printers.
Please click here to be taken to the Printronix P8000 page.


Other printer companies may boast of having high speed printers, but the T6180 takes bragging rights as being the first (and only) line printer to reach the milestone of 1,800 lines per minute (draft)! (Click on Picture for Specifications)

This blinding speed is made possible, in part, because of the T6180's Page Segment Architecture. This technology makes use of a proprietary controller that arranges data into segments prior to printing. Since this eliminates time-consuming reversal, text and graphics are printed in just one pass.

The T6180 also features a dual dot row hammer bank, which actually prints two rows of dots at the same time. And it does this in the time it takes a conventional printer to print just one.

AS/400 & S/36 Twinax and 3270 coax mainframe interfaces are supported just as they are on the full line of Tally printers.  IPDS and Magnum/Code V/ IGP Graphics are available as well.

And now you can get both 10BaseT and 100BaseT Ethernet connections... with the T6180's new LANPlex II option. Plus it supports all the current protocols you need, including AS/400 & S/36 Twinax, 3270 coax, TCP/IP, Novell 3.x and 4.x, Windows NT, and AppleTalk. The LANPlex II ships with a CD-ROM containing a number of utilities for Unix, Novell, and flash upgrades.

Excellent Forms Handling

The T6180 can handle up to 6-part forms and prints a line up to 13.6" wide. A straight paper path and features to control and monitor paper position all help ensure proper forms handling.

These include a new platen position sensor and high-torque dual motor paper drive system to boost energy for heavy form control. Stability, tension and high slew speeds are achieved by four tractors... each with six steel pins in contact with the paper at all times. Plus you get a precise forms tension lever, a forms thickness "Helm" wheel, and a new four-point shuttle mount.

The result is steady, reliable performance at up to 318,000 pages per month.

Outstanding Print Quality

Using the constant density font mode, the T6180 can print characters of 10, 12, 13, 15 and 17 cpi all at 1,800 lpm, even if intermixed on the same line.

Sharp text for forms and labels is produced by a proprietary, injection-molded impact element engineered specifically for uniform solid dot creation. Teamed up with the exclusive Read/Right barcode algorithm... and an extremely stiff frame, hammer bank carriage and platen... this element also produces the highest quality barcodes and graphics.

Wide Graphics Language Emulations

The T6180 offers wide graphics language emulations. These include QMS Code V and Printronix Graphics Language (PGL) compatibility for industrial graphics and bar codes, and Tally's exclusive Read/Right barcodes.

Also included is POSTNET barcode.

Parallel And Serial Interface

Resident parallel and serial interface automatically select the active interface.

Plus you get 12 popular emulations, including MT600, Printronix P600 & P6000, HP 2564C, DEC LG01, Epson FX100, Genicom ANSI & IBM Proprinter III XL.

Optional FourPlex (with or without IPDS), LANPlex II, and Extended Parallel interfaces equip the T6180 to function fully with PC's, IBM midrange/mainframe systems or networks. All interfaces are user installable and all ports are "hot."
