What is a POS Printer?

Point of Sale hardware includes many types of receipt printers. These are portable printers mostly used in retail for printing customer receipts. A thermal printer is the most basic type of POS printer. It is a very high speed printer most suitable for large volume receipt printing and does not require any additional media for printing.

Technology and Advancement

Thermal printing is a digital printing process where a printed image is produced by selective heating of coated thermochromic paper, or thermal paper when the paper passes over the thermal print head. A thermal paper roll is placed in a container provided in the machine, with the end of the roll fed into a slot. As the sheet reacts to the heat of the printer head, the pigments on the heat-sensitive paper form the letters and images as transmitted through the thermal printer. Thermal printers don’t use ink cartridges and so they are economical and low maintenance.  

Need for a Thermal Printer

Thermal printers ensure an efficient point of sale experience not just for customers but also for the service providers. They are a cost effective and convenient choice for a POS transaction and other functions like printing receipts, ID badges, shipping labels, price tags etc. They are useful for businesses because of their increased printing speed, low cost, easy maintenance, better print quality, and improved functionality.
