Thermal paper and thermal paper slitting machines are becoming increasingly used for printing receipts and other documents.

“What do I need for a successful thermal paper roll business?” you may wonder.

Don’t fret!

We’ve got you. At Jota machines, we cater to your individual consumer needs and budget.

Whatever your level of expertise in thermal roll capabilities, we are your one-stop-shop for all your needs.

This article explains the three essential raw materials required for your thermal paper roll investments, as well as other needs for successful production and shipping.

Read on to maximize today’s edition.

What are the basic raw materials for thermal paper roll business?

These are the primary requirements for your production line, without which you cannot produce rolls. They include the following:

  • Thermal paper jumbo paper rolls
  • Plastics cores
  • Thermal paper slitting machine

Thermal paper jumbo paper roll

A Jumbo paper roll is a large 10 – 12 or more inches in diameter roll paper useful in transfiguring operations. From this large roll, you slit thinner rolls for use as POS paper or till rolls.

You also rewind the rolls into various lengths and sizes.

You can determine how many small rolls you can acquire from a given Jumbo roll based on your desired dimensionsFor example, a jumbo roll can be 558mm wide and 6000m long. The 80mm x 80mm thermal till rolls are approximately 60m long. A slice of 80mm roll from the jumbo roll can therefore give you 100 small rolls of 80mm x 80mm. In total, you can get 700 rolls from one jumbo roll.

We know that a jumbo roll weighs approximately 200kgs. So your 80mm x 80mm POS thermal paper will weigh about 0.28kgs. This information will be helpful for your packaging and pricing operations.

small roll

On the other hand, your machine operator should be privy to the dimensions of the jumbo roll in adjusting the slitting knives on the slitting machine to avoid wastage.

Our slitting machines are automatic and easily configure the desired adjustments for optimal production.

Plastic Cores

For all your converting and winding applications, you must have plastic cores. These cores are ideal for larger rolls since they are stable, dust-free, and clean.

For smaller cores needed for smaller POS thermal paper, you can consider using paperboard cores. You, however, should know that paperboard cores are not reusable and can quickly spoil, leading to losses.

Inner plastics core

At Jota machinery, we manufacture plastic cores for all your films, fabrics, labels, tapes, ribbon, and other continuous sheet products.

We are specialists in making your cores have solid dimensional tolerance and precise length.

You need plastic cores for receipt rolls and related products which boast of the following qualities:

  • Cores that remain moisture-free and are waterproof
  • Cores that are superior in crush resistance
  • Cores with the ability to maintain excellent smoothness on their surfaces
  • Seats that are environmentally friendly since you will reuse them over and over.

your cores should be made of these common materials:

  • HIPS ( High Impact Polystyrene)
  • PP ( Polypropylene)
  • HDPE (High-Density Polythene)
  • Rigid PVC

Allow us to customize your plastic cores and help you meet your packaging and production needs. Our personalized and flexible manufacturing service will meet your bulk or unique customer requirements.

Thermal Paper Slitting Machine

You can acquire a fully automatic slitting machine for maximum speed and efficiency if you are financially able.

A semi-automatic machine is equally suitable for a beginner with a smaller budget. However, the bottom line is you need to equip yourself with a thermal paper slitting machine from a trusted and reliable source.

Your thermal paper slitting machine should be able to work on but not be limited to cash register paper rolls, an ATM paper roll, a receipt paper roll, and a POS paper roll. We are your trusted partner and market leader in all types of slitting machines suitable for your needs.

The capabilities of your slitting machine will be vital in determining your specific plastic core requirements, the size of your applicable jumbo paper, rate of production, and overall efficiency rating. Keeping your slitting machine in a spacious environment for easy and safe operations is vital.

To make the most from your slitting machine, here is a short list of things that you may need to appreciate:

  • Its composition and structure: a slitting machine comprises the positioning, slitting, and unwinding components.
  • Its character: usually, it’s easy to operate, has high material utilization, cuts with precision, and has a speedy step-less speed regime.
  • Its need for regular maintenance: to make the most out of your slitting machine, it is essential to have a predictable care and inspection regime.

 Your operator should always put on protective gear and maintain a safe distance from the slitter when in operation. You can turn it on after checking its physical integrity. The machine can guarantee its safety.

Other requirements for thermal paper roll business

Besides the three basic needs for the paper roll business, additional tools are needed to enhance progress and success. They include:

  • Air compressor
  • Packing material
  • Customized Cartons

Air compressor

This material is your essential requirement when operating a cash register paper roll slitter. Your machine should be accompanied by a pneumatic system to compress air. This system works using a PLC control board. This technology makes them automatic.

Packing Material

You will require packing material to conveniently package your receipt paper rolls or products to ensure their integrity and security during the shipment process. Your material should be water-resistant and spacious enough to arrange them in dozens or any other figure for easy accounting.

  • Customized Cartons

It would be proper if you acquired cartons for your packages that bear your brand name. This measure is strategic in promoting and advertising your brand to potential customers. A carton is ideal in branding both the origin and the destination of your consignment.

This branding will curb losses and costs that would occur during shipment due to misplacement for lack of proper labeling. Cartons are good for a green environment.

Conduct a market research

Your success as a business owner will depend on market volume and completion. First, conduct a thorough evaluation of the need for paper roll products in the region you intend to serve.

market research

Find out how many banks, cinemas, cash registers, shopping malls, supermarkets, and related businesses there are in your country or city to evaluate the need for thermal rolls. The more there are, the larger the market.

Secondly, find out if competitors are around, determine their capabilities, identify potential market gaps that need your attention, and plan and execute a strategy to enter the market.

If there are competitors, make sure your prices, product quality, and customer service are top-notch.

 Do a return on investments research

The ROI is also called profit research. At this stage, you take stock of the cost of your investment visa vis your projected profit margins. Every investor is motivated by the possibility of attractive profits.

Ask yourself relevant questions like:

  • What is the cost of operational infrastructure?
  • What is the industries’ growth rate?
  • What are the market size and possible turnover?
  • For how long will the business opportunity remain relevant?
  • What is the projected ROI?

Our take would be if you make at least a 10% profit margin with a pay-back duration of 1-2 years of your original investments, go for the business. You will after that enjoy an ROI of about 50%, which is impressive.

Find a strategic location

Find a location that is easily accessible, secure, and in a non-residential area to avoid an unnecessary clash with the law and disturb your neighbors’ peace.

Other factors to bear in mind would include; parking space, demographics, economic policy, availability of labor, and basic infrastructure.

You would do good to be informed by the ease of access to the market as facilitated by road and rail networks air and marine transport.

Equip your business
