Thermal printer / kiosk printer & cutter
In direct thermal printing, a thermal print head or a thermal bar prints directly onto thermosensitive specialty paper that turns black when exposed to heat. No additional consumables are required for this printing process. Another advantage is that thermal printers have very few moving parts, which inherently gives them a longer lifespan.
Thermal kiosk printers could serve as a perfect solution to fit a broad range of environmental conditions. Indoor/outdoor environments, variations in temperature and humidity affect the whole application and must be considered.
Since 1965, we have been supplying the market with printers and cutters and have specialised over time in direct thermal built-in printers. Thanks to our special, many-faceted skills and our experience in this field, printer system solutions are a particular speciality of HENGSTLER. Our thermal printers are to be found in kiosk systems, ticket machines, bank applications (ATMs), in industry and the retail trade. Printable widths vary from 50 to 216 mm and paper weights from 55 to 250 gsm. Hengstler's thermal printers are used in a variety of applications, including as gas station receipt and bank statement printers, as well as in ticket vending machines, kiosks, and fire alarm systems. They are characterized by their ease of use in daily operation, reliable quality, and maintenance-free design, making them particularly suitable for situations that require the highest level of reliability. Because seamless integration with the customer's equipment is crucial for embedded printers, Hengstler develops both standard printers and custom solutions. In order to ensure clean paper cutting after printing, the product range also includes cutters that are strong and reliable, suitable for various cutting widths. They are self-sharpening and therefore also maintenance-free.
