What is a Thermal Ink Jet Printer? 

A thermal ink jet printer is a subset of ink jet printing technology that uses heat to propel ink droplets onto the printing surface. The process involves heating a tiny resistor inside the ink chamber, which causes the ink to vaporize and create a bubble. As the bubble expands, it forces a minute droplet of ink through the nozzle and onto the substrate. 

This method of printing provides several advantages, including high print resolution, accurate colour reproduction, and the ability to print onto various media types. Additionally, thermal ink jet printers are typically more energy-efficient and quieter in operation compared to other forms of printing technologies. 

The Obeeco range of thermal ink jet printers is designed to deliver exceptional performance and reliability, ensuring that your business can capitalise on the numerous benefits of this advanced printing thermal printing technology.
