Abstract

Serial by character non-impact printers use a set of electrodes, arranged in a matrix, to print a series of dots as the head traverses the paper. The electrodes can be either thermal contacts (thermal printers) or electrical contacts (electroerosion printers) that burn a coating off the paper.
