Technical parameters and performance of bar code printer

bar code printer

bar code printer is a special printer. The content it prints is generally the brand identification, serial number identification, packaging identification, bar code identification, envelope label, clothing tag, etc


I believe we often encounter such situations. When you go to shopping malls or supermarkets, you will see that there are small labels on the goods, and there are vertical channels on the labels (this is a very unprofessional name, but it is very straightforward). When we go to the checkout, the salesperson scans the label on the goods with a handheld scanner, The price you should pay for this product will be displayed on the terminal POS machine immediately. Here, the professional term of vertical bar code is called bar code. Its wide application has directly led to the rapid popularization of its corresponding equipment. As one of the important equipment for bar code application, bar code printer is widely used in manufacturing, logistics and other industries that need to print labels. Although bar code printers have been widely used, there are not many users who can really understand bar code printers. Therefore, today we will talk about this bar code printer to give you a general understanding of it

barcode printer

as the name suggests, barcode printer is of course a printer that prints barcode. It is a kind of stylus printer. Ordinary bar code printers are mainly used in shopping malls. The barcode printer prints the ink on the carbon tape (equivalent to the needle colored tape) on the barcode printing paper (there is a certain standard size of self-adhesive printing paper) through the print head, but. Although it can be used as an ordinary printer (if you don't think it's too narrow), it is still used to print commodity bar codes most of the time (99.%). For another example, the new year is coming soon, and many friends want to buy train tickets home. The bar code on the train ticket is printed by the bar code printer. It seems that bar codes still exist all the time in our life

the biggest difference between bar code printer and ordinary printer is that the printing of bar code printer is based on heat, with carbon tape as the printing medium (or directly using thermal paper). The biggest advantage of this printing method compared with ordinary printing method is that it can realize continuous high-speed printing without supervision

the most important component of bar code printer is the print head, which is composed of thermistor. The printing process is the process of thermistor heating to transfer the toner on the carbon belt to the paper. Therefore, when choosing a bar code printer, the print head is a component that deserves special attention. Its cooperation with the carbon ribbon is the soul of the whole printing process. At present, due to the difference of brands of printers commonly used in the domestic market, there are two different print heads. One is the flat press print head, and the whole print head is pressed on the carbon belt. This print head can adapt to various carbon belts and has a wide range of user groups. This print head is the most common and is widely used in bar code printers of various brands; The other is the suspended print head, which is a new type of print head mode. The tip of the print head is just pressed on the carbon belt. Although this print head has high requirements for carbon belt, it has the function of saving carbon belt, so it is widely used by some large companies with strong technical force

technical parameters and performance of bar code printer

1. Print width: it indicates the maximum width that the printer can print, and also represents the grade of the printer. Generally speaking, there are several choices of print width from 3 inches to 8 inches. Print width is the decisive factor in choosing a printer. Users should choose a printer suitable for themselves according to their actual needs

2. Printing accuracy: the higher the accuracy of the printer, the clearer the printing is. Now the highest printing accuracy is 600dpi, and the 200dpi or 300dp can be adjusted to the specified value after repeatedly adjusting and calibrating the angle value. I can meet the daily needs of the industry. There is no need for users to invest too much cost in pursuing too high printing accuracy

3. Printing speed: fast speed is the biggest advantage of bar code printer over ordinary printer. Its speed can reach 12 inches/second. For the same kind of machine, the faster the speed, the lower the accuracy. Therefore, users must adjust the machine by themselves to achieve the perfect combination of speed and accuracy

4. Interface: generally, parallel port is the standard interface of bar code printer

5. Others: in order to make the printer meet the requirements of users, various manufacturers have designed many optional accessories: cutter, stripper, paper holder, etc. users can choose and buy according to their specific requirements

characteristics of bar code printer

in addition to the printing function of ordinary printers, it also has the following advantages:

1. Industrial quality, which is not limited by the printing volume and can be printed for 24 hours

2. It is not limited by printing materials, and can print pet, copper paper, thermal paper self-adhesive labels, polyester, PVC and other synthetic materials and water-cleaning label fabrics

3. The text and graphics printed by thermal transfer have scratch proof effect, and the special carbon tape printing can also make the printing products waterproof, antifouling, corrosion-resistant, high temperature resistant and so on

4. The printing speed is extremely fast, up to 10 inches (24 cm) per second

5. Continuous serial numbers can be printed and batch printed by connecting to the database

6. Label paper is generally hundreds of meters long, which can reach thousands to tens of thousands of small labels; The battery is planned to be put into production in 2015. The printer adopts continuous printing method, which is easier to save and sort out

7, not limited by the working environment

8. The maximum length of a single label can reach more than 120 cm
