Change jobs without changing paper on the multipath 3940IP printer in an IBM application.
Heavy-duty use in manufacturing, warehouse, healthcare, and retail operations. They Get Your Jobs Done On Time. Designed for IBM environments, the 3940IP and 3910IS serial printers deliver outstanding performance at up to 600 cps so you get more work done faster.
Like Two Printers In One. The 3940IP features a dual paper handling system with auto-switching paper paths. Now you can load two different continuous forms and switch between them so you can change jobs without changing paper. Or load two identical forms for longer unattended print runs.
The 3910IS printer is designed with one paper path serving either front or bottom feed. They Make Tough Jobs Easier. These versatile workhorses have all the features needed for mission-critical printing. The 3940IP provides automatic forms thickness sensing and adjustment for up to 6-part forms. Both models give you zeroinch tear-off, automatic paper park, and automatic top of form.
Built For The Long Run.
The rugged 3940IP and 3910IS belong to a family of printers that have proven themselves in the most extreme environments: from dusty, exposed warehouses to backoffice operations where every second counts and nonstop printing is essential.
Plug Into Any Application.
Multiple system connections include IBM, networks, PCs, and workstations. These printers will serve you well in many applications, including shared-resource or network printing, multipart forms and labels, and bar codes.
