The name thermal printer may sound strange to you at first. We all know the printer is necessary in daily work and life, but what is a thermal printer?
Principle Of Thermal Printer
For thermal printer, it's defined as: "A thermal printer has a semiconductor heating element installed on the print head which heats and touches the thermal paper. After heating, a chemical reaction starts in the film coated with a thermal color layer to produce patterns. The thermal printer reacts chemically at a certain temperature. High temperatures accelerate this chemical reaction. When the temperature is below 60℃, it takes a long time, even several years to get dark. However, at 200 ° c, it happens in several microseconds.”
To put it simply, the principle is that there is a layer of preheated discoloration film on the thermal printing paper. After heating the printing head of the thermal receipt printer, it becomes a pen with ink. On the thermal paper, the written place will turn black, which equals to drawing the pattern with the pen.
Thermal Printers In Life
