Thermal Print Heads for Barcode Label Printers

Thermal Print Heads for Barcode Label Printers

Thermal Print Heads for Barcode Label Printers are devices used to print using thermally sensitive materials. For example, thermal paper and thermal transfer ribbon. Accomplished by energizing resistors mounted on a substrate to generate joule heat. We can both the thick film and the thin film.

For that reason, thermal paper is used in a wide variety of applications. Specifically, the low-cost, easy to handle, and virtually maintenance-free. Therefore, it is used in fax machines, printers, and ticketing equipment.

Furthermore, improved characteristics such as recording quality and speed have expanded the application range.

TPH for Barcode Label Printers Thin Film


 A thermal transfer ribbon is a thin film that is wound on a roll that has a special black coating on one side.  This coating is usually made from a wax or resin formulation.

For instance, during thermal transfer printing, the ribbon is run between the label and the printhead, with the coated side of the ribbon facing the label.  Therefore the ribbon and label pass over the printhead. The printhead heats up the ribbon’s coating and is transferred from the ribbon to the surface of the label.

In conclusion, the printing on that label came from the coating on the thermal transfer ribbon that was heated by the printhead.

For that reason, leveraging these advanced technologies allows SHEC-WHEC to quickly commercialize thermal printheads. Additionally, leading the industry by providing proprietary high reliability, high-performance solutions that utilize thick/thin-film configurations, thermal history control ICs, special protective glazes, and more. In conclusion, SHEC-WHEC can also design and manufacture custom products tailored to user needs.
