I had a 133 column line printer, and an 80 column Data Printer, Data products interfaces. Both drums. They could both move 3 x 5 cards at 10000+ lines / min when printing < 20 columns. They were variable speed, so when something fired on the first 20 columns, such as for addressing, the thing move like lighting.

Very nice printers. wish I could have held onto them, but they were sold for good $$.

the 80 column one probably printed some junk mail for you, was bought by a labeling company for a mass mailer of technical journals here in Orange Country.
