How does thermal printing work?
A fixed thermal print head heats the thermal paper width causing pigments in the paper to chemically darken in response to the heat, this makes thermal printers reliable and very fast.
What are the benefits of thermal printers?
The quietness and speed of thermal printer mechanism means they are ideal for many applications such as measuring and analysis instruments, data terminals, medical equipment as well as EPoS/MPos terminals. For these reasons thermal printers are increasing in popularity.
Thermal printers are extremely cost effective; whilst thermal paper may be slightly more expensive than plain paper there are no additional consumables required for example ink cartridges or ribbons.
A further advantage of thermal printing is the quality of printing remains consistent compared to ink-jet printers. This makes them advantageous in many business settings.
