Methods Label Printers use to print
Barcode Label Printers use one of two methods in order to print on labels or tags.
Direct Thermal uses the heat from the printhead to cause a chemical reaction on the thermal labels and the area that is heated turns black producing the print. Therefore no ribbon is used for this method of printing. The abbreviation for Direct Thermal used on this site is “DT”.
Thermal Transfer also use the heat from the printhead. But to rather transfer the ink from the ribbon onto the label. The thermal transfer method produces a much longer lasting printed label that is not easily affected by heat, liquid or direct sunlight. The abbreviation for Thermal Transfer Printers is “TT”.
What are Desktop Label Printers
Desktop label printers are a low cost solution compared to the bigger heavy duty printers. These printers are available in either DT or TT models. The thermal transfer printers are also able to be used as direct thermal printers. Desktop printers have been designed specifically to offer affordable label printing up to a few thousand labels per day. These printers offer a broad range of connectivity like USB, Serial, Parallel or Ethernet. In addition, some of the models can be expanded with WiFi and Bluetooth options.
What are Industrial Heavy Duty Label Printers
Industrial label printers are high performance printers that stand up to high volume and demanding applications. These printers, as a result have metal covers protecting the units from harsh environments. Industrial printers are available in 4″ together with 6″ models. High print quality at 203dpi or 300dpi to suite all high demand applications.
