When the printing speed appears to degrade, you may be able to
improve it by running the print job in a higher pitch mode.
The illustrations in this section show the pitch modes in which
you can operate with the smallest and largest size papers
supported by the 96/4635/180 printer.
Using small paper sizes in 8-pitch mode:
Printing in 8-pitch mode provides the highest throughput speed
available: up to 154 ppm for the 4635 printer and up to 206 ppm
for the 180 printer. (The 96 printer does not support 8-pitch
mode.) However, you should keep the following in mind when
you select the paper you want to use for this mode:
Paper sizes smaller than 8 inches / 203 mm are supported
only when the optional 7-inch paper kit is installed on the
The leading edge of any paper used in the printer cannot be
less than 10 inches / 254 mm long.
The following figure illustrates the maximum and minimum paper
sizes supported in 8-pitch mode.
