Abstract

Problem is that when a receipt is printed on a thermal printer with dual print heads (one on either side of the receipt to be printed) there is a blank area or latency because the lower print head is so far beneath the upper print head and the cutter.The more that can be printed on both sides of the paper without waste the better. Reducing the latency reduces paper use and subsequently reduces the time to print the receipt.
