					            Barcode Printer its kinds and its uses




A barcode printer is a device that is used for the purpose of printing the barcode
labels or the tags as they call it, which is to be attached, or they can be printed
on the physical items. These printers are generally employed to print labels that
can be stuck on the cartons on which labels can be stuck, and then they are
shipped to the destination. This is also used to print the labels on the retail
products with the help of EANs or UPCs.

A typical kind of barcode printer uses either one or two other kinds of print
technologies. A direct thermal printer uses a print head, which is to produce the
required heat to cause the chemical reaction in the paper that is being used for
printing. The paper then transforms to the colour black. Other type of printer
known as the thermal printer also employs heat but it does not react with the
provided paper, rather it releases a wax substance onto a ribbon that is made to
run over the label material. The heat is used to send ink from the ribbon towards
the paper. Usually the direct thermal printers are considered to be cheaper.

A barcode printer is specifically designed for target markets. An industrial
barcode printer is kept at huge warehouses and other manufacturing facilities.
These sorts of printers have large paper storage, they work faster than a normal
printer, and they also have a longer life. These kind of printers are normally
used for the retail and office spaces, there desktop printers are traditionally kept.
What is the working of a barcode printer?

with the help of that are used to make the needed length of the tags or labels.

The old barcode printers get stuck in between and cause the paper to get
jammed. Also the thermal printer is used for fast speed barcode printer
applications.
