Economical Solution for High-Volume, Mission Critical Impact Printing.

The TallyGenicom 6300 Series accommodates the most demanding applications in the harshest environments. With their rugged and efficient design, they provide the most reliable and economical printing solution.


The 6306 and 6312 line printers are the first and only line printers to offer Auto-Gap which simplifies operator set-up and printer use by setting the optimum print gap based on the form thickness.

For forms with varying thicknesses, the auto-gap feature detects ands sets a variable print gap to produce the optimum print quality on all portions of form, from label to tip-on cards, and more.

Patented Smart Ribbon.
The patented SmartRibbon is available on the 6312 and ensures a uniformly high contrast over the ribbon’s life – the last form looks as good as the first. This long-life ribbon cartridge significantly reduces user intervention and increases productivity.
