What are the advantages and disadvantages of thermal printers?
What is the development prospect of the thermal printer?
The thermal printer consists of a hardware platform and driver software. According to the functional composition, it is divided into the following functional units: stepping motor, print point data communication, heating unit control, sensor signal unit, cashbox control, communication interface, keyboard, indicator group, word library, nonvolatile data unit, operable external extended data space, reset circuit, power supply circuit, external oscillation, core processing unit, etc.
Compared with needle printers, thermal printing has the advantages of high speed, low noise, clear printing, and convenient use. However, the thermal printer cannot print double copies directly, and the printed documents cannot be saved permanently. If the best thermal paper is used, it can be stored for ten years in a good condition away from light. Needle printing can print double copies, and if you use a good ribbon, the printed documents can be saved for a long time. However, the needle printer has slow printing speed, loud noise, and rough printing handwriting, so the color band needs to be replaced frequently. If you need to print invoices, it is recommended to use needle printing. When printing other documents, it is recommended to use thermal printing.
Thermal printer is closely related to the application and promotion of commercial POS systems. In the early stage of development, it is mainly used in commercial and retail fields. After entering the 1980s, with the improvement of electronic informatization and automation and the development of bar code recognition technology, the application of thermal printers has rapidly expanded to industrial manufacturing, transportation, modern logistics, commerce, catering, and other industries. It is widely used in various fields of the national economy and people's life, and the market is gradually mature. With the sustained and rapid growth of China's economy, the continuous promotion of electronic information management, and the continuous improvement of service levels in all walks of life, the demand for thermal printers is increasing rapidly. In the future, thermal printers will enter a rapid popularization period in China, and the market scale will continue to grow at a high speed.
With the technical development and upgrading of thermal printers, the demand for the use of thermal printers has started to increase in many markets, the largest of which is the market for printers for receipt printing represented by POS machines. Previously, the thermal paper was not recognized as paper for receipts due to issues such as preservation of thermal paper, but now it is recognized as paper for receipts in most countries due to improved preservation and durability by paper manufacturers. Now, prints using thermal paper can be seen all over the world. If you work in a related field, you may consider our high-tech products.

What is the operation principle of the thermal printer?
What are the application fields of thermal printers?
The principle of a thermal printer is to cover a layer of transparent film on light color materials and turn the film into dark color after heating for some time. The image is generated by heating and chemical reaction in the film. This chemical reaction is carried out at a certain temperature, and a high temperature will accelerate this chemical reaction. When the temperature is lower than 60 ℃, the film takes a long time, even several years, to turn dark. When the temperature is 200 ℃, this reaction will be completed in a few microseconds.
The thermal printer selectively heats the thermal paper at a certain position, resulting in the corresponding graphics. Heating is provided by a small electronic heater on the print head in contact with the thermal material. The heaters are arranged in the form of square points or strips, which are logically controlled by the printer. When driven, a graph corresponding to the heating elements is generated on the thermal paper. The same logic circuit that controls the heating element also controls the paper feed, so that graphics can be printed on the whole label or paper.
The most common thermal printer uses a fixed print head with a heated dot matrix. The print head has 320 square points, each of which is 0.25mm × 0.25mm。 Using this dot matrix, the printer can print points at any position of thermal paper. This technology has been used in paper printers and label printers.
The thermal printer can only use special thermal paper. The thermal paper is coated with a coating that will change color due to chemical reaction in case of heat, which is similar to photosensitive film. However, this coating will change color in case of heat. Using this characteristic of thermal coating, thermal printing technology has emerged. Thermal printing technology was first used in fax machines. Its basic principle is to convert the data received by the printer into a dot matrix signal, control the heating of the thermal unit, and heat and develop the thermal coating on the thermal paper. At present, thermal printers have been widely used in POS terminal systems, banking systems, medical instruments, and other fields.

Advantages and disadvantages
Panel thermal printersprovide the easiest way to integrate a micro printer into your device. They include a printer mechanism, interface electronics and a convenient housing panel for mounting. Installation requires only one panel switch provided. Panel thermal printers include a choice of thermal or impact printer mechanisms of various paper widths, low power (portable) and high speed fixed mounts. From the smallest sizes to truly portable devices, to ultra-high speed panel printers with automatic cutting machines that approximate the performance of kiosk printers. There are also printers designed to replace traditional equipment with industry standard panel cutting sizes and software emulation.
The principle of panel thermal printer is, in light material (usually paper) on a layer of transparent film, the film heated for a period of time into dark (generally black, but also blue). The image is produced by a chemical reaction in the membrane caused by heat. This chemical reaction takes place at a certain temperature. High temperatures will accelerate the chemical reaction. When the temperature is below 60℃, it takes quite a long time, even several years, for the film to become dark. At 200℃, the reaction takes a few microseconds.
The panel thermal printer selectively heats the thermal paper at a certain location, thus producing the corresponding graph. Heating is provided by a small electronic heater on the print head in contact with the heat-sensitive material. The heater is arranged in a form of square dots or bars, which are logically controlled by the printer and, when driven, it produce a graphic corresponding to the heating element on the thermal paper. The same logic circuit that controls the heating element also controls the feed, and thus prints graphics throughout the label or paper.
Compared with needle printer, panel thermal printer has the advantages of fast speed, low noise, clear printing and easy to use. But the panel thermal printer can not directly print double, printed documents can not be permanently saved. If the best thermal paper, avoid light in a good state, can be saved for ten years. And needle printer can print double, and if you use a good ribbon, the printed documents can be saved for a long time. But the needle printer printing speed is slow, loud noise, printing handwriting rough, often need to change the ribbon. If the user needs to print invoices, it is recommended to use needle printer, and for other documents, it is recommended to use panel thermal printer.

Thermal paper is a special coated paper, its appearance is similar to ordinary white paper. The surface of thermal paper is smooth, which is made up of ordinary paper as a paper base, coated with a layer of thermal color layer, are coated on the surface of ordinary paper, color layer is composed of adhesives, chromogenic agents, colorless dye (or hidden dye), not separated by microcapsules, chemical reaction in the "latent" state. When the thermal paper encounters the hot print head, the chromogenic agent printed by the print head and the colorless dye react chemically and change color, forming a picture and text.
The thermosensitive printing technology was first used in the fax machine. Its basic principle is to convert the data received by the printer into the dot matrix signal to control the heating of the thermosensitive unit and heat and develop the thermosensitive coating on the thermosensitive paper. Panel thermal printer has been widely used in POS terminal systems, banking systems, medical instruments and other fields. Panel thermal printer can only use special thermal paper, thermal paper coated with a layer of heat will produce chemical reaction and color coating, similar to photographic film, but this layer of coating is heat will change color, using the characteristics of thermal coating, thermal printing technology.
A panel thermal printeris one that uses heat to produce images on paper. Due to printing quality, speed, and technological advances, it is increasingly popular for use in the aviation, banking, entertainment, retail, grocery, and healthcare industries.

A barcode scanner, also known as a barcode reader, barcode scanner gun, barcode scanner, barcode scanner gun, and barcode reader. It is a reading device used to read the information contained in a barcode. It uses optical principle to decode the content of barcode and transmit it to the computer or other devices through data line or wireless. It is widely used in supermarkets, logistics and express delivery, libraries, and other places to scan barcodes of goods and documents. Established in 2006, Shenzhen Masung Intelligent Equipment Co., Ltd. is a national high-tech enterprise that produces barcode scanners with the theme of technological innovation. It always insists that science and technology is the first productive force, and takes independent innovation as the basis of survival of the enterprise.
How does the barcode scanner work?
What types of barcode scanners are there?
Common bar code scanners are generally composed of the light source, optical lens, scanning module, analog-to-digital conversion circuit, and plastic shell. It uses photoelectric elements to convert the detected optical signal into an electrical signal, and then converts the electrical signal into a digital signal through an analog-to-digital converter and transmits it to the computer for processing. When scanning an image, after the light source irradiates the image, the reflected light converges on the scanning module through the lens, and the scanning module converts the optical signal into an analog-to-digital signal (i.e. voltage, which is related to the intensity of the received light), and points out the gray and dark range of the image. At this time, the analog-to-digital conversion circuit converts the analog voltage into a digital signal and transmits it to the computer. The color is quantized by 8, 10, and 12 bits of RGB three colors, that is, the signal is processed into the image output of the above bits. If there are higher quantization bits, it means that the image can have richer levels and depths, but the color range has exceeded the recognition ability of human eyes. Therefore, in the distinguishable range, for us, the effect of a higher digit bar code scanner is that the color connection is smooth and we can see more picture details.
A bar code scanner, also known as a bar code scanning gun and reader, is a device used to read the information contained in the bar code. It can be divided into one-dimensional and two-dimensional bar code scanners. Here we mainly discuss a two-dimensional bar code scanner, also known as a two-dimensional code scanner.
Two-dimensional code scanners can be divided into embedded, fixed, and handheld according to their different ways of use. Embedded QR code scanners are usually set at the gate of mass transportation modes such as subway and high-speed railway and are often embedded in the wall as enterprise attendance punch-in or identity recognizer. The fixed QR code scanner is a desktop, which is usually placed on the desk or fixed in the terminal equipment. It can recognize the two-dimensional code printed on paper and the two-dimensional code on the mobile phone screen, so it is widely used in the fields of electronic ticketing, electronic coupons, membership system, mobile phone two-dimensional code boarding, and so on. A handheld QR code scanner, also known as a QR code scanning gun, is the most ideal bar code reading device for QR code e-commerce applications. It can be widely used in the application fields of electronic vouchers such as electronic membership cards, electronic coupons, electronic tickets, electronic receipts, and so on.
The prospect of a barcode scanner will be unlimited, because it fully meets the psychology of people who need to do the most convenient things in the shortest time in the fast-paced modern society, and it will be the big trend.
