Thermal Printers

Thermal printers are printers that use heat to transfer ink or other media onto a page. They are often used for printing receipts, tickets, or labels and are known for their speed and durability. Thermal printers do not use cartridges and are generally low maintenance, but they are not as versatile as other types of printers and are not suitable for printing photos or graphics. There are two main types of thermal printers: direct thermal printers and thermal transfer printers. Direct thermal printers use a special paper that is coated with a chemical that reacts to heat, while thermal transfer printers use a ribbon that is coated with ink or toner. Thermal printers are an important tool for businesses and other organizations that need to produce high-quality, low-cost prints on a regular basis. They are often used in point-of-sale (POS) systems, where they are used to print receipts and other transaction documents. Thermal printers are also used in a variety of other settings, including hospitals, warehouses, and shipping and logistics companies.
