Non Thermal Till Rolls
WHY NON-THERMAL TILL ROLLS
In some industries, particularly catering, printers which take non-thermal till rolls remain the most popular choice. Normally these printers are based on dot-matrix technology, but some use ink jets. Either way, you may be familiar with the way they work which is the same as many home and office computer printers.
Both types of printer are very much tried and tested, with dot-matrix technology dating back to the 1920s and inkjet printers to the late 1960s. Thermal printing didn’t come along until the 1970s.
The cost of till rolls for these older types of technology tends to be slightly less than for thermal printers. That’s because it doesn’t have to use specially-coated paper. For the same reason it can be a little easier to recycle non-thermally printed receipts.
Although the paper may be cheaper, users of non-thermal printers have to factor in the cost of replacement ribbons or ink cartridges. The way dot-matrix printers work using a grid of tiny pins to hammer an inked ribbon to create letters, numbers and images makes them potentially unreliable. Over almost a century of development however, the technology has become pretty robust despite the number of moving parts. Many of our customers are still happily using non-thermal printers they’ve had for decades, as they see no need to replace them. In some workplaces they remain an ideal solution.
ADVANTAGES OF NON-THERMAL TILL ROLLS
There are some key reasons why the non-thermal printer thrives over their thermal counterparts.
One advantage is that non-thermal impact printing allows for the simultaneous production of copies. This is because, although thermal printers can print multiple consecutive copies, they cannot print duplicate or triplicate copies simultaneously. In much of the restaurant trade in particular, multiple copies are required for the kitchen staff, waiters, front of house and accounts. Non-thermal rolls provide the robust, tried and tested solution, allowing each staff member to be able to get the information they require. Secondly, in the restaurant-type environment, mainly non-thermal till rolls are used in ink-based dot-matrix impact printers. These printers which use ribbons are more suitable and robust than thermal printers for working in hot humid environments such as kitchens. The paper also tends to be thicker and more resilient to smudging from, for example, greasy fingerprints. This is where the product category and name has come from... Kitchen Printer Rolls.
