Importance of Thermal Paper Rolls in Smooth Functioning of ATMs
ATMs (Automated Teller Machines) are an essential part of modern banking and ATM thermal paper rolls suppliers are a critical part of the ATM supply chain. Just imagine withdrawing anything ` 500 to ` 5,000 from the bank in the pre-ATM days! It would have taken you nothing less than an hour if there was a normal crowd rush at the bank. You would have to fill out the cheque and the withdrawal form, get it stamped from one counter and then stand in a queue behind at least 10 customers at the teller counter. In this blog we will look up the factors that help ATMs function smoothly.
ATMs have almost become indispensable
In the cash economy, ATMs are the essential lifeblood without which everything literally comes to a standstill. Even when ATMs run short of cash it can have a crippling effect on the economy as we had seen during the early days of demonetization in India. What would have been the situation had the ATMs not operated at all for an entire month? Needless to say that it’s unthinkable as everything would have been in utter chaos. If availability of cash in the ATMs is an essential for the machines to be functional, ATM thermal paper rolls manufacturers also play an important role in ensuring that the machines duly dispense transaction receipts.
How thermal paper receipts are printed in ATMs
The process of printing on thermal paper happens through heat transfer wherein, the heat injected via the print head activates the chemical coating on the thermal paper and produces the print output. Most ATM thermal paper rolls suppliers offer variants of the thermal paper that is coated with BPA (Bisphenol A), a chemical solvent that is harmful to humans. Unfortunately, not many people seem to be aware of the risks that direct exposure to such chemicals can cause.
That’s because most thermal paper manufacturers haven’t really bothered to follow ongoing research on the subject and take preventive action to protect the health and safety of their customers. However, a few reputed thermal paper rolls manufacturers are producing better quality products without BPA and they are gradually gaining ground in the market.
