Thermal transfer printer

A thermal transfer printer is a color printer using colored waxes that are heat-transferred and fused to special coated papers. The thermal print is particular known through the production of bar codes, the expression of digital images as well as the pressure of parking tickets or travel cards. Since a pressure point of the print head is heated either or not, it can be changed using direct thermal transfer printers as well as only one-color prints.
