Thermal printing is one of the specialties that we focus on from Fenix Imvico as far as our sector is concerned. We manufacture and distribute thermal printers for multiple applications, although in the article that we are discussing we will talk about the advantages that this offers over thermal transfer printing.
Direct thermal printing applies heat directly from the thermal head onto the surface of the paper or label, generating the chemical reaction of the paper, that is, printing. This makes them fast prints to perform.
On the other hand Thermal Transfer uses an ink ribbon that heats up and transfers the print on several different surface types.
The main difference between both printing technologies is that the first one does not use any ink cartridge, while the second one does. This fact is a great advantage offered by thermal printers, taking into account that by not using any type of consumable it helps the equipment hardly require maintenance.
