Abstract

Whenever an impact printer, such as a wire matrix printer, is used, a considerable amount of noise is generated due to the constant impaction of the printing elements against the paper. Furthermore, whenever such printers are used with continuous form paper, additional noise is generated by the movement of the paper over a long path through the printer mechanisms.
