Thermal Paper Till Roll Making Machine Ultimate FAQ Guide

Thermal Paper

What Is Thermal Paper Used For?

The term “thermal paper” refers to paper that is used to record information and is coated with materials that turn colors when heated.

In other words, thermal paper is a special kind of coated paper that changes the physical or chemical properties of the substance (the color developer) when heat is applied to its surface. This changes the text and image.


Thermal paper can be used as:

  • Fax paper, communication carrier for text and graphics on fax machines;
  • Recording materials in medical systems, such as ECG drawings;
  • Printing paper in Internet terminals;
  • Lottery tickets in the betting field;
  • Trademarks.


The principle of thermal paper production is to coat fine particle powder on ordinary paper, the particle powder is composed of leuco dye, phenols, or other acidic substances, separated by a film.

Under heated conditions, the film melts and the powder mixes to generate a color reaction.

The text/graphic developed with ordinary thermal paper is unstable and easy to fade, which makes the content illegible and not suitable for long-term storage.

But good thermal paper can be stored for 30 years or even longer.

What Is The Thermal Paper Price?

Thermal paper is usually sold per ton.

Because thermal paper is divided into many different specifications according to the paper grammage, the price varies based on different grammage.

The common specifications are:

  • 48gsm
  • 55gsm
  • 65gsm

Moreover, different manufacturers’ thermal POS paper jumbo roll quality is uneven, and the price will vary due to quality differences.

Take the APP brand 55gsm thermal paper as an example, the current price is USD$1,775.00/ton.


APP is the largest pulp and paper mill in Asia and has already ranked among the top 10 in the world.

The APP thermal paper quality is relatively good, if you are more price-sensitive, we can also help you find more competitive price thermal paper jumbo rolls in China.

Thermal Paper Manufacturers

There are many domestic thermal paper manufacturers here in China.

Among which, the larger ones are:

  • Jianghe
  • Chenming
  • Guanhao
  • APP
  • Xianhe

Well-known thermal paper manufacturers abroad include:

  • Germany’s Koehler Paper
  • South Korea’s Hansol Paper
  • Japan’s Mitsubishi Paper and Ricoh Paper


How Can You Tell If Paper Is Thermal?

We may run into thermal paper in our daily lives.

How can you tell if you have thermal paper?

In fact, the way to do it is very easy.

Scratch the paper gently with your nails, coins, keys, etc., because friction can make heat, and the heat makes the heat-sensitive substance change color.

Therefore, the paper displays traces (usually gray) after being scratched, it is thermal paper.

And the most heat-sensitive paper developer is bisphenol-A.

How Long Does Thermal Paper Last?

Generally, the thermal paper shelf life is only 2-3 years or even a few months.

Long-shelf life thermal paper is classified as long-lasting thermal paper.

At present, the long-lasting thermal paper’s shelf life can reach over 10 years in a normal storage environment.

But the following interference needs to be avoided:

  • High temperature
  • High humidity
  • Direct sunlight
  • Contact with solvents, plasticizers

Some particularly good quality thermal papers can even be stored for 30 years.

Is Thermal Paper Bad?

When used in a normal environment and temperature, thermal paper made by regular companies is not toxic. However, if the temperature changes, it will become toxic.

If you can, please wash your hands right away after touching the thermal paper receipt. Do not use alcohol-based cleaners, though.

Do not touch the mouth right away after putting your hands on the receipt.


The thermal POS paper roll contains bisphenol A, although bisphenol A is not a hormone in the true sense, it has a hormone-like effect.

If it is taken in excess, it will interfere with the body’s normal hormone function, affect the reproductive system development, destroy the endocrine system balance.

If there is not much exposure to bisphenol A, there is almost no harm.

Does All Thermal Paper Contain BPA?

Not all thermal paper contains BPA.

Now those thermal paper manufacturers will provide 2 types of thermal paper for customers to choose:

One type is thermal paper with BPA;

The other type is thermal paper without BPA (BPA-free)

The price of thermal paper with BPA is relatively cheaper, and the price of thermal paper without BPA is relatively higher.

You can choose the type you need according to your budget.

Does Thermal Paper Fade?

Thermal paper will fade slowly during storage, which is determined by the thermal paper characteristics, and there is no way to overcome it.

For more important documents, copy the thermal paper and then save, so there are no worries.

How Do You Keep Thermal Receipts From Fading?

Thermal receipts fading can’t be reversed, but you can follow the below precautions to delay thermal receipts fading.

  • Protect thermal paper from direct sunlight, moisture, high temperature, and ultra-low temperature.
  • Stack thermal paper in layers, avoid too heavy stacking to prevent glue penetration and adhesion.
  • Store thermal paper at 23±2℃ and RH65±5% environment.
  • Pack and seal the thermal paper with moisture-proof paper or film.

Can Thermal Receipt Paper Be Recycled?

Thermal receipt paper can be recycled by paper recycling plants.


As thermal receipt paper has a layer of chemical raw materials, it must be processed by certain pulping.

Waste collection stations understand more about it than you, they can send waste thermal receipt paper to suitable paper recycling plants.

Thermal Roll

What Is A Thermal Till Roll?

Thermal paper till roll is commonly used consumables for cash registers, ATM machines, POS machines, fax machines, and electrocardiographs.

They can be used as carriers to print text and graphics.


Such till rolls are usually made by slitting the thermal paper jumbo roll and then winding it, with a certain width and diameter.

The specific width and diameter can be customized according to the end customer’s requirements.

The most common thermal till roll size is 57mm x 50mm and 80 x 80mm.

What Is The Uses Of Thermal Paper Roll?

Thermal paper has developed rapidly with the fax machine’s popularity all over the world, now its application is becoming more and more extensive.

At present, thermal paper roll’s main applications are listed below:

  • Thermal paper for the fax machine

Mainly used for various types of thermal fax machines, this type of fax machine may be used for commercial purposes, or it may be used privately at home.

  • Thermal paper for printing and terminal recording

Thermal paper now is quite useful in printing records for many types of equipment.

These equipment include:

  • Word processors
  • Medical testing and industrial testing
  • Computer-aided design and production (maybe CAD/CMA)
  • Counters
  • Automatic cash payment machines (ATM/CD)
  • Portable terminal printers
  • Receipt records for highways, and taxis.
  • Thermal paper for labels and receipts

The thermal paper application in recent years has been extended to the label field, and the development is fast.

It is a combination of thermal paper and self-adhesive labels, coat the thermal paper’s back with a sticker and compound it on the release paper for labels.

What Is The Difference Between Thermal And Non-Thermal Till Rolls?

  • Different printed effect

The thermal paper surface has a special coating, which will turn black when heated.

If it is used as a printing paper, the printed content will disappear quickly;

If the art paper is used as printing paper, the printed content will stay for a long time.

  • Different printing methods

One is thermal printing and the other is thermal transfer printing.

  • Different quality

The thermal printing paper used in cash registers is generally divided into 3 layers.

The bottom layer is base paper, the 2nd layer is a thermal coating, and the 3rd layer is a protective layer.

The primary influence on its quality is the thermal coating or protective layer, and the plain paper will not be influenced by these 2 factors.

  • Different temperature effects

Ordinary paper is less affected by temperature, but the thermal paper is greatly affected by temperature.

How Do You Measure Till Rolls?

How to calculate till roll length in meters?

Assuming that the till roll length is L(m), the till roll outer diameter is B(mm), the paper core outer diameter is C(mm), and the thermal paper thickness measured by a micrometer is T(μm).



For example, 57×50 thermal roll, the paper core outer diameter=24mm, the thickness is 78μm.

Then the length L=(2500-576)*0.7854/78=19.37m.

How Long Is A Roll Of Receipt Paper?

Generally speaking, the length of a receipt paper roll is determined by the winding diameter.

The following table summarizes some common receipt paper rolls’ lengths (65gsm):

Width x Diameter (mm)Length (m)
57 x 3010
57 x 4012
57 x 5020
80 x 5020
80 x 6030
80 x 8060

How Are Thermal Paper Rolls Produced?

Thermal paper rolls are produced by a thermal paper slitting and rewinding machine.

Air compressor is also essential because the thermal paper slitting rewinding machine equips with many pneumatic components, such components consume compressed air.


What’s more, thermal paper roll production also requires some necessary raw materials, such as thermal paper jumbo rolls, paper core/plastic core.

Thermal Roll Making Machine / Thermal Paper Manufacturing Machine

Thermal Paper Manufacturing Process

Thermal paper is a kind of processed paper, and its manufacturing principle is to coat a layer of “heat-sensitive paint” (heat-sensitive color change layer) on high-quality base paper.

Although more than a dozen chemicals are used in this color-changing layer, leuco dyes are essential.

The dye has a wide variety, the most commonly used are fluorescent compounds.

  • The developer accounts for about 20% or less

The commonly used are bisphenols and p-hydroxybenzoic acid;

  • The sensitizer accounts for about 10% or less

It contains benzenesulfonamides compounds;

  • Fillers account for less than 50%

Commonly used is calcium carbonate (fine particles);

  • Adhesives account for less than 10%

Such as polyvinyl acetate, stabilizers, dibenzoyl terephthalate, lubricants, etc.

Because of this, thermal paper manufacturing is difficult and the technical requirements are high.

Thermal Paper Roll Manufacturing Process

The production of thermal cash register paper small rolls is realized on the thermal paper slitting machine.

The specific process is to first unwind the thermal cash register paper jumbo rolls from unwind stand, then enter the slitting section after web-feeding through various drive rollers.

The slitting knife divides the thermal paper web into multiple narrow strips.

The narrow strips are wound on a plastic/paper core and then is rolled into a thermal paper roll by shaft rotating.

How Does the Thermal Paper Till Roll Making Machine Work?

The master motor in a thermal roll slitting machine rotates the winding shaft and rollers through the timing belt, and the tension created by the rotation rotates the unwinding shaft.

The jumbo roll on the unwinding shaft rolls ahead continuously while the unwinding shaft rotates. After travelling to the slitting section, it is chopped into numerous thermal paper strips by the rotating slitting knives.

The separated thermal paper strips are first glued on the winding shaft, then rotated with the winding shaft to form a finished thermal till roll.

The most significant aspect in the operating procedure of a thermal roll slitting machine is tension management.

The unwinding tension gets smaller and smaller as the unwinding diameter gets smaller and smaller.

At this point, a magnetic powder brake must be installed to improve braking torque and compensate for the decreasing unwinding tension.

The winding tension increases as the diameter of the winding increases.

It’s critical to use a magnetic powder clutch or a manual clutch at this point to reduce braking torque and relieve the increasing winding strain.

So, is the functioning of thermal paper till roll making machine automatic?

Yes, your JOTA till machine is fully automatic.

  • The till roll making machine carries all the process by itself thus reduces the aid of manual hard work.
