What is a single pass printer?

Many people ask about this question when they first heard about it. Why it names single pass and what is the single pass means?

Well, firstly we can look at the word itself “single pass”. Single we could see as “one” or “once” and “pass” now is not “through” but means the printing times that a picture be finished or we can understand as: cover times in unit square meter. So now we connect ‘single’ and ‘pass’ as ‘print a picture in one time’.

Single pass printer is a printer which can print a certain picture in one time. Normally it do have one print head which wider than others and allowed at least A4 size picture to print in one pass.
