Thermal Printers

Looking for a Thermal Printer?

There are a number of factors to take into consideration when looking to purchase thermal printers. There are two types: direct thermal and thermal transfer printers. Each method uses thermal print heads that apply the head to the surface being marked.

What is a thermal printer?

We explain the difference between the Thermal printer types.

Thermal transfer printers use a digital thermal printing method that produces durable, long-lasting printed images on a wide variety of media by applying heat & melting a coating of thermal transfer ribbon onto the printed material.

With the ability to accept a wide range of heat sensitive media including paper, polyester, and polypropylene materials, these devices can print durable wristbands, asset tags, specialised labels, barcodes, tickets, and more. This thermal transfer technology process, method or technique is used for all long life/long-term markings like asset tags, inventory labels, durable labels, outdoor, freezer applications, and more.

Direct thermal printing is where the inked ribbon is removed from the process so media is more light sensitive, heat sensitive and sensitive to abrasions thus reducing its life expectancy of the printed product. This is mainly used where the low shelf life is not a disadvantage and it is especially important to print at low cost. Typical areas of application are tickets, cash register receipts, luggage tags, event tickets, shipping labels, pic labels, name tags, and visitor passes in hospitality and many different industries.
