What we print
The material on which we print is very important and everyone who knows at least a little about printing and large format printing will say so.
They use solid sticks of CMYK-coloured ink, similar in consistency to candle wax, which are melted and fed into a piezo crystal operated print-head.
Bad paper can cause that our product will not behave as it should be, and colors or invoices will make reading and receiving difficult, and yet, in print, it is precisely what this is all about.
When choosing the type of paint carrier, it is worth following the proven solutions, or relying on the advice of the company or the printing plant, because they are in the trade? and they will definitely offer something worth attention and meet our requirements.
About solid ink printers
Solid ink printers, also known as phase-change printers, are a type of thermal transfer printer.
The printhead sprays the ink on a rotating, oil coated drum.
The paper then passes over the print drum, at which time the image is immediately transferred, or transfixed, to the page. Solid ink printers are most commonly used as colour office printers, and are excellent at printing on transparencies and other non-porous media.
Solid ink printers can produce excellent results.
Acquisition and operating costs are similar to laser printers.
Drawbacks of the technology include high energy consumption and long warm-up times from a cold state.
Also, some users complain that the resulting prints are difficult to write on, as the wax tends to repel inks from pens, and are difficult to feed through automatic document feeders, but these traits have been significantly reduced in later models.
In addition, this type of printer is only available from one manufacturer, Xerox, manufactured as part of their Xerox Phaser office printer line.
Previously, solid ink printers were manufactured by Tektronix, but Tek sold the printing business to Xerox in 2001.Źródło: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Printer_(computing)
Stationary sales of printers
Ink printer store
Printers are very often sold in a stationary way.
Although the internet sale of various types of devices is even more popular among potential customers, there are also people who use computer stores when they want to buy a new or used printer.
It must be admitted that buying printers in computer stores is by far the best way to acquire new printing devices, but they can also be found in large stores with a general range, which includes various types of accessories for printers and the printing devices themselves. Among these types of stores, you can distinguish popular hypermarkets.
