is an important output device. Used to print high quality graphics and drawings. Although the graphics can be printed on printers, the resolution of such printing is limited on printers. Plotters are generally used for printing/drawing graphical images such as charts, drawings, maps. Of engineering and scientific application.
Some important types of printers are:
a.) Flat Bed Plotters:
These plotters print the graphical images by moving the pen on stationary flat surface material. They produce very accurate drawings.
b.) Drum Plotters:
These plotters print graphical images by moving both the pen and the drum having paper. They do not produce as accurate drawings as printed by flat bed plotters.
c.)Inkjet Plotters: These plotters use inkjet in place of pens. They are faster than flat bed plotters and can print multi-colored large drawings.
