An impact printer is a printing device typically used in conjunction with a computer that allows the relatively rapid and repeatable printing of visual materials. Though most often used in obsolete printers for text, some forms of impact printer, such as dot matrix printers, continue to be used for certain purposes. Replaced by toner-based and inkjet printers in most applications, an impact printer works by literally impacting letters or shapes onto a piece of paper. Similar in function to a traditional typewriter, this process involves needles or letter-shaped heads striking against an ink-soaked ribbon and impacting a sheet of paper on the other side.
