TSC label printers are available in as either direct thermal only or thermal transfer / direct thermal configurations. Our models that are designed for thermal transfer printing can be run in direct thermal or thermal transfer mode. Direct thermal mode uses heat sensitive labels that darken to form barcodes, graphics and printed text as heat is applied by the printer’s print head. Direct thermal labels are suitable for short shelf life labels which are not exposed to extreme light or heat.
Thermal transfer printing requires the use of a ribbon and prints labels suitable for many environments. Applications for thermal transfer label printers include many forms of signage, manufacturing identification, product identification, asset tagging, and a host of other solutions. Ribbon and label combinations are available that provide resistance against abrasion, heavy wear, temperature extremes and chemical damage.
TSC thermal label printers support text printing in any language font, including True-Type™ fonts. True-Type fonts can simply be copied to the printer and font sizes can be scaled internally by the printer. TSC label printers also handle all standard barcodes including two dimensional codes. Graphic support includes .PCX and .BMP formats. Label formats of any print size or orientation are available.
TSC label printers support print resolutions of 203 dpi (8 dots/mm), 300 dpi (12 dots/mm) and 600 dpi (24 dots/mm). Most print solutions can be adequately handled by a 203 dpi printer while 300 dpi provides the ability to print high quality, small print labels and 600 dpi provides specialized very fine print capabilities.
TSC offers a comprehensive selection of printers that support print widths of 2 inches (58mm), 4 inches (108mm), 6 inches (168mm) and 8 inches (219 mm) wide allowing our customers to select the most affordable solution for their printing needs.
All TSC label printers are designed for ease-of-use concerning the replacement of either ribbon or print media supplies. Sophisticated label registration and top-of-form detection is supported by sensors designed to detect label gap, black mark, or notch.
The print speed of TSC label printers is model dependent, with top speeds ranging from 3 inches per second up to a very fast 12 inches per second.
