Fastest printer


The world's fastest printer was the Radiation Inc. electro-sensitive system at the Lawrence Radiation Laboratory, Livermore, Calif. It printed up to 36,000 lines per minute, each line containing 120 alphanumeric characters, by controlling electronic pulses through chemically impregnated recording paper that moved rapidly under closely spaced fixed styli. The system could print the entire wordage of the Bible (773,692 words) in 65 seconds.
