The difference between thermal printer and dot matrix printer

Everyone in life often encounters a lot of paper receipt, and even some friends joked that "there are more tickets in the hand than banknotes!" If you are careful, it also have a small ticket, but the feeling is very different. One kind of small ticket is the feeling of common paper, and the other kind of ticket feels smoother. What is the difference between them? Today, we will tell you about two printing methods that are widely used in ticket printing.At present, in addition to daily documents, we are also filled with various ticket, from courier receipts to restaurant receipts, shopping receipts, and so on. Ticket looks the same can be achieved by both thermal and pin-printing techniques. The previously described notes that are smoother to the touch are basically implemented using in thermal printer. So what are the characteristics of these two printing methods?thermal printer
The dot matrix printer forms a font by hitting a medium such as paper through a needle in the print head. The user can select multiple sheets according to the requirements. Generally, the commonly used multi-join paper has 2, 3, 4, and 6 printer papers. Multi-link paper is printed once and only the dot matrix printer can be completed quickly.The stylus printing technology is characterized in that the needle strikes the medium, and the force of the needle is transmitted to the paper medium through the ribbon, and the multi-copy paper can be printed. Due to the subtle differences in the needles, the printed documents are unique and difficult to falsify.But stylus printing also has its drawbacks, that is, printing is slow! Needle printing is slower because of the reciprocating motion of the needle. Secondly, the ribbon of the dot matrix printer needs to be replaced frequently, the operation is cumbersome and the printing cost is high.
Common applications: invoice printing, ticket printing, etc.
Thermal printer
The thermal printer has a semiconductor heating element mounted on the printhead. The print head heats up and touch the thermal paper to print the desired pattern, like a thermal fax machine. The image is generated by heating to produce a chemical reaction in the film.
Compared to pin printing, thermal printing has the advantage of being fast, because the thermal printer's paper can reach the second-out speed and the wide design of the print head.
However, thermal printing also has its disadvantages, because the thermal paper is greatly disturbed by the ambient temperature, so the printed bills have a short storage time, and the printed bills are faded and blurred in about three months, which is difficult to recognize.
Common applications: catering ticket printing, take-out order printing, shopping receipt printing, etc.
