Barcode Printer is a kind of printer dedicated to printing barcode labels. Barcode printer is also called Label Printer,
The biggest difference between barcode printers and ordinary printers (HP, EPSON, BROTHER) is that the printing of barcode printers is based on heat, and the printing is completed with Thermal Tesanfer Ribbon as the printing medium (or directly using thermal paper).
The biggest advantage of this printing method over the ordinary printing method is that it can realize continuous high-speed printing without supervision.
The content it prints is generally the brand logo, serial number, packaging, bar code , envelope label, clothing tag, etc. of the enterprise.
I believe that we often encounter such a situation. When you go to the mall or supermarket to buy something, you will see a small label on the product. The label is a straight line of black and white ( this name is very unprofessional. But it is very clear ), when we went to checkout, the salesperson used a handheld barcode scanner to scan the label on the product, and the price you should pay for this product was immediately displayed on the terminal POS machine.
The technical term here is called barcode Barcode, its wide application has directly led to the rapid popularization of its corresponding equipment, and barcode printer. Barcode Printer as one of the important equipment for barcode application is widely used in manufacturing, logistics and other industries that need to print in the labeling industry.
Sam As the name, the Label Printer is used to print barcodes. It’s a kind of printer. Barcode printer is mainly used in shopping malls.
The barcode printer prints the ink on the ribbon (equivalent to the needle punched ribbon) on the Label paper (the self-adhesive printing paper with a certain standard size) through the print head. It can be used as a normal printer. The barcode on the train ticket is printed by the barcode printer.
The most important part of Label Printer is the print head, which is composed of a thermistor. The printing process is the process in which the thermistor heats up and transfers the toner on the ribbon to the paper. Therefore, when purchasing a barcode printer, the print head is a component that deserves special attention. The cooperation between it and the ribbon is the soul of the full printing process.
