daisywheel printer
Jump to user comments
printer A kind of impact printer where the characters are
arranged on the ends of the spokes of a wheel (resembling the
petals on a daisy).
The wheel (usually made of plastic) is rotated to select the
character to print and then an electrically operated hammer
mechanism bends the selected spoke forward slightly,
sandwiching an ink ribbon between the character and the paper,
as in a typewriter.
