Advice On Choosing A Portable Thermal Printer

By Robert Winston

If your job involves a lot of travelling or you need to be able to print out receipts or barcode items from wherever you are then a portable printer could provide the perfect printing solution.

The Datecs DPP-350 3″ rugged printer and other portable thermal printers come with a magnetic stripe reader and Bluetooth and they are ideal for printing receipts, ticket applications and barcoding.

A variety of roles within many working environments would benefit from this printing solution, including those working in distribution, warehousing, healthcare, travelling sales, retail and transportation.

An image is produced on a thermal printer through the heating up of thermal paper, which has been impregnated with a mixture of acid and dye. When heated up as it passes over the thermal print head, the acid and dye in the paper react to form the image.

As thermal printers print quickly and quietly, they can be used in almost any situation. They are also cost effective – they don’t require ink cartridges or toner, so the only consumable is the special thermal paper.

You might have come across portable thermal printers in the commercial world as they are used as slot machine voucher printers, hospital cardiac monitor printers and point of sale systems.

A portable printer, like the DPP 350, gives you reliability and ruggedness in a small package. They are cost effective, compact and extremely portable and most come with a variety of options such as Wi Fi, Bluetooth, smart card reader and magnetic stripe reader.

Your portable thermal printer will most likely come with accessories such as wearable built-in metal belt hook and a neck or shoulder lanyard, to make it easy to carry around with you.

Whatever your portable printer requirements, whenever or wherever you have to print out tickets and receipts, there is one thing that is guaranteed with a rugged portable thermal printer – that it will rise to the challenge!
