Printers for Scales

Save time and money by shopping one source for all of your printer and related media needs. We have many different models of ticket, tape, thermal label, and RFID-compliant printers along with a full line of media and accessories like scale tickets, labels and ribbons. Direct thermal printers require the use of heat activated thermal papers and films, but require no transfer ribbon. The print color is primarily limited to black. Labels will darken over time if the surface gets scratched or is subjected to heat and sunlight. Thermal transfer printers require the use of a carbon ribbon which gets transferred onto the label via heat. The ribbons can be different colors, and the printing is very crisp and durable—excellent for high density bar codes and labels that require longevity. The Rice Lake TicketPress printer automatically adjusts to media thickness and prints multiple easy-to-read copies. The rugged steel enclosure protects internal mechanisms in tough industrial applications from truck scale reporting to inventory control. The Epson TM-U295 is a sound and economical choice for simple ticket printing needs. This attractive model will print tickets up to 4 parts thick.

What to Look for When Buying Printers for Scales

Are you searching for a printer for a scale? With such a niche product, it can be hard to know what you need and which type of scale printer is right for your application.

Label printers use heat-activated thermal papers and films. They’re ideal for a retail setting, particularly when barcodes are needed. This is the type of printer used for deli scales and bulk scales at supermarkets. Then there are tape or receipt printers, which are used when ticket lengths may be variable, as they print on roll tape. For truck scales, a ticket printer is most commonly used.

Still not sure which type of printer is best for your scale? Send us an email or give us a call and one of our experts will listen to your needs and help you choose the right model for you.
