Learn about thermal USB printer
What is purpose and utility of a thermal USB printer? Explain the key components of these printers.
Thermal printers are special type of printers to do simple tasks. Thermal printer works with heat and heat-sensitive paper. In thermal printers, heat-sensitive paper is placed in a rubber roller. The heat sent to the thermal head will create a line of characters through the heating of thermal paper. The thermal USB printer has a USB interface connection port to connect with a primary device. Thermal printers are usually used in the supermarket and other sales shops. It can print with two colors.
