dot matrix printer

  

Definition

Type of computer printer that uses tiny hammers in its print head to strike pins over an inked ribbon to form characters or images on paper, and is used mainly for multipart forms. For general printing, dot matrix printers have largely been replaced by cheaper, quieter, and faster non-impact printers such as ink jets and lasers which also produce output of far better quality (resolution).
