Thermal Direct Printing and its applications

Thermal Direct Printing is a form of printing that makes use of chemically treated substrate and applies heat (thermal energy) to it for printing something. The chemically treated substrate is called thermal paper. When the paper is fed into the thermal printer and heat is applied to different areas, those areas turn black to produce an image. Thermal direct printing is the only form of printing that involves no ink or toner.

Uses of Direct Thermal Printing

Label manufacturers have found direct thermal printing suitable for a variety of printed labels. The simplicity and the affordability of the entire process is what make direct thermal printing ideal for select types of adhesive labels. Direct Thermal Printing does not require any ink or toner. It just needs a thermal paper which is not very expensive as compared to other substrates. The direct thermal printers are also inexpensive by themselves. They are not very big in size and not too complicated either. The typical components of a thermal printer are: a thermal head where heat is applied to the paper, a spring that applies pressure to the thermal head, a platen that feeds the paper and controller boards. Label manufacturers in Mumbai use it to print bar codes, FM CG package labels and simple labels to be used in shipping.
