Looking for Printek 4600 & 4603 Parts?

The FormsPro 4600 Series printers can solve your toughest printing problems and automate most paper-handling functions.

Wide Carriage

With the FormsPro Series, you'll print with greater legibility and unsurpassed reliability.

The FormsPro 4600 Series features:

  • A draft speed up to 530 cps, which prints a typical 1,000-character document in less than five seconds. That's over 700 documents per hour!
  • Auto-switching power supply can work domestically and internationally, and it weighs less!
  • FP4600 has single set of tractors while the FP4603 has our patented Tri-Trak system that allows for three different set of tractors to be loaded!
  • Superior legibility- even on 9-part forms. Auto-Gap feature adjusts the printhead according to form thickness.
  • Easy-load, tilt-up top to simplify loading, and straight-up paper path eliminates the problem of forms buckling and jamming.
  • A paper jam sensor to permit reliable, unattended operation.
  • Optical sensor prevents printhead from printing beyond the edges of the loaded form.

Ability to print 9-part forms. FormsPro printers have 30% higher impact force than other brands, making them the preferred choice for situations where thick forms and multi-part legibility are an issue. The increased readability helps to increase the accuracy and efficiency of your staff in accounting and operations.

Tri-Trak System

Certain Printek models (FormsPro 4603) have our patented Tri-Trak system. This is the only paper-feeding system on the market that allows three different continuous forms to be loaded into one printer. This feature saves a great deal of unproductive time spent loading and unloading forms and also saves space and computer ports.
