IBM 4247-V03 Printer Stand

The IBM 4247-V03 Printer Stand has three main sections:

A flat table surface to hold the printer

An input paper tray to hold forms before they are fed through the printer

An output paper tray for stacking forms after they are printed

The table is designed specifically to support the features of the IBM 4247-V03, and since this stand accommodates the footprint and weight of the 4247-V03, printer vibration is minimized.

The printer stand was also designed to serve the characteristics of the 4247-V03 printer. The stand accommodates two continuous forms and a separator in the front of the stand is used to ensure that the forms are kept separate.

When dual continuous forms are used, one form rests on the input paper tray and the other form rests on the floor underneath the input tray.

The printer stand is customer set-up and can be easily assembled in about 30 minutes.

The original higher-priced enclosed cabinet style printer stand (#4462) is still available.
