The use of a recently-developed high registrant protective layer allows the Lightning series of high-performance thermal print heads to operate faster than conventional high-density print heads. It also is said to extend operating life of the new heads to 2-3 times that of other thermal print heads on the market. Lightning heads' durability and print quality are also said to be improved. The series presently encompasses three models: 600-dpi print head capable of operating at speeds of 10 ips (inches per second); and 300- and 400-dpi heads running at 14 ips. The series is primarily targeted at the barcode printer market and associated label, ticket and tag printing applications. The heads were developed by Toshiba's Thermal Print Head Group.
