Thermal printer comprises these key components:
• Thermal head: generates heat; prints on paper
• Platen: a rubber roller that feeds paper
• Spring: applies pressure to the thermal head, causing it to contact the thermosensitive paper
• Controller boards: for controlling the mechanism
In order to print, thermo-sensitive paper is inserted between the thermal head and the platen. The printer sends an electrical current to the heating elements of the thermal head, which generate heat. The heat activates the thermo-sensitive coloring layer of the thermosensitive paper, which changes color where heated, then the printing is finished.
Thermal printers can be divided into different categories, and nowadays the mobile thermal printer is becoming more and more popular.
