Disclosed is a design for an 18-wire dot matrix print head that uses all of the critical parts from an existing nine-wire design. The design also provides for the use of print wires of two different densities to compensate for a difference in wire length. In this way, the ballistic mass of the wires remains constant, and variations in wire dynamics are negated.
