Paper width: Narrow receipt, slightly wider for more information, or full page width, ISO format.

Paper weight/thickness: It is important to consider beforehand, as many printers, especially the wider models, cannot handle very thick stocks.

Many kiosk thermal printer applications use teleprompters to prevent vandalism, protect private information, or keep untaken files off the ground.


Cutter

Almost always used in kiosk thermal printers, but the type depends on the paper.


Data Interface

How does the kiosk thermal printer connect to your host? USB, RS-232, Bluetooth, or others? Will your application print through a printer driver? If so, what is your operating system and can the printer manufacturer provide a suitable driver for it?


Resolution

203dpi and 300dpi are the most common in most applications.


Print Speed

How fast do you need to print? Faster is not always better. In thermal printing, increased printing speed increases current consumption and thus increases power supply costs.


Operating voltage

DC voltage available to the kiosk thermal printer (24VDC, 12VDC, others).


Environmental, Spatial and certification issues

Environmental conditions: What is the temperature and humidity range to which the kiosk thermal printer is exposed? Is it an outdoor application?

Available space: How much space does the kiosk have for printers and paper?

Printer direction: From which direction should the printed output exit the kiosk; Up, down, level, angle?

Compliance/certification: UL, CE, E1, etc. Does the application require approval or meet requirements?


Black or hole marks

Used to locate pre-printed tickets so that the print can be placed in a specific location.


Features

Any special requirements, such as pull, double feeding, printing after scanning bar code; Both sides of the paper, etc.


Expected workload

While not a requirement, you should know the average number of printouts per day and the average length of printouts. This allows you to calculate printer life data, which is otherwise a guess.


Whether it is gasoline pump receipts, bank statement printers, rail ticketing systems, phone booths, fire alarm systems, or anything else, we can serve and can help locate and integrate the most suitable printer for the desired purpose.
