Class-leading performance.
At top speeds of 1,100 characters per second, the LA800 keep pace with the bustling, no-nonsense world where printing is time sensitive and critical. These devices produce multi-part invoices, shipping documents or bar code labels at a rate of 50,000 pages per month.

The addition of a second front push tractor allows two sets of different forms to be loaded simultaneously, making the printer accessible to multiple users from several applications without having to reload paper. And zero-inch tear-off reduces paper waste and decreases paper cost. This dual fanfold capability with standard and optional push tractors allows the LA800 printer to perform the tasks of two printers.
