Thermal Paper Printers are now a Vital Part of any POS
Rudkav International offers a range of thermal paper printers are used for printing cash receipts, bar codes, labels, price tags, and other kinds of printing at the point of sale. Such printers use heat to create the necessary impression on the paper or substrate and are therefore known as non-impact printers. There are two types of thermal printers – direct thermal and thermal wax.
The working principle of thermal printers
The printhead on thermal paper printers has numerous micro heating pins that are resistive and burn dots on the thermal paper upon contact. The printing can also take place through the melt wax-based ink into ordinary paper. The printer has a microprocessor that is programed to select the specific heating pins for producing the required impression. Most such printers have heads that span the full width of the substrate or paper to be printed on.
Places where thermal printers are widely used
Thermal paper printers are widely used for transaction documentation across an increasing number of POS (Points of Sale). These include corner stores, super stores, single brand large stores, hotels, restaurants, ice cream parlors, salons, chemist shops, public transport like buses, mobile app based cabs and parking lots among others. All these businesses have adopted thermal printers because it increases their efficiency and helps them provide better customer service, which improved their revenues.
Importance of choosing quality thermal paper
Rudkav International supplies not only thermal paper printers of varying sizes and configuration but also high quality thermal paper rolls of various sizes that are compatible with different types of thermal printers at the POS. Businesses that use such printers to provide instant cash receipts to their customers need a steady supply of quality thermal paper to ensure that their business is not affected due to lack of thermal paper rolls.
At the same time you must ensure that your thermal printer runs only on quality thermal paper to avoid any likely damage to the printhead caused by paper that is not compatible to your printer.
