What is a dot-matrix machine?

Not dissimilar to typewriters in the way that they operate, dot-matrix is a form of computer printing which works using a print head that moves up and down or in a back and forth style motion. The print head strikes the ink-soaked cloth ribbon against the paper, and prints using the impact.

Though this style of printing isn’t common nowadays, it has been highly popular in garages and when printing documents of high-importance such as bank statements.
