It can be use different barcode printers depends on product structure and usage. Some printing technologies are below:
|Printing Technologies||Initial Installation Cost||Long Term Care Cost||Print Quality||Barcode Readability||Material Consumed|
|Dot Matrix||Low||Medium / High||Low||Low||Too|
|Ink Jet||Low||Medium / High||Medium||Medium / High||Too|
|Laser||High||Medium / High||Medium||Medium / High||Too|
Note: Genarally thermal printing technologies preffered in barcode applications.
1) Direct Thermal Printing
2) Thermal Transfer Printing
1) Thermal Transfer Printing
Thermal transfer printing uses a heated ribbon to produce durable, long-lasting images on a wide variety of materials. No ribbon is used in direct thermal printing, which creates the image directly on the printed material.
2) Direct Thermal Printing
No ribbon is used in direct thermal printing, which creates the image directly on the printed material. Direct thermal media is more sensitive to light, heat and abrasion, which reduces the life of the printed material.
