Choosing a receipt printer
By the method of printing, check printers are thermo-printing and dot-matrix. If matrix models are cheap, image quality is much better for devices that are based on thermal printing. Next, we’ll talk about receipt printers and help you choose a receipt printer.
Matrix receipt printers that you can purchase here produce strong background noises, need regular replacement of the ink composition, and do not live up to expectations when working with complex graphic elements such as logos, monograms and drawings.
The next criterion for choosing a printer for checks is the width of the print. The width is considered to be standard 4.4 cm, 5.7 cm, 8 cm. The wider the tape, the more information is placed on it, including branding. Thus, if you decide to supply products of the so-called with registered checks with company logos, a printer that prints on an 8-cm thermal tape is a good choice. Also, models that print on wide ribbons allow operations on narrower ribbons, if necessary.
Then attention must be paid to production speed. This option is extremely important when printing a large number of checks in a limited time period. For example, a check printer of the latest model can process up to 220 mm thermal tapes per second. Putting company logo on the check requires a special print density. A resolution of 203 dots per inch makes it possible to obtain fairly high-quality and clear images of small sizes.
Modern models of printers for checks are equipped with a USB interface, which makes it possible to quickly connect to a computer via a network cable or Ethernet interface, and the presence of objective software makes it possible to create and print images of any complexity on receipts.
The last thing to consider is the device’s work resources. For productive printers, a thermal head allows you to print a tape several kilometers long, work several thousand hours, and also make several million movements of the automatic cutter.
