Plotters

Plotters are similar to printers, they are used and utilized in drawing illustrations, diagrams, construction maps, architectural plans, engineering drawings, business charts, 3D printing and are also used in printing chart rather than alphanumeric characters. The plotter is used in specific assignments and tasks associated with engineers, architect, graphic architects and so on. They are well known for their contribution in planning and drawing therefore abundantly used by professional.
The Plotter is a type of computer device used to print vector graphic images and pictures of relatively big sizes compared to printers. The Plotters was used in CAD computer-aided design, which was removed from conventional printers. Usually, Plotter utilizes pen, pencil, and marker for drawing without using toner. The modern plotters can be used as a component or device of a computer system or a standalone device. Basically, a plotter consists of a head with several color pens that are continuously moving on the drawing paper to print a pre-designed image entered as input on the computer system. Generally, the tool of plotter is divided into two parts i.e., Drum Plotter and Tabletop/ Flatbed Plotter.
Types of plotters – plotters that are most commonly used in various fields are as follows:
Pen Plotter
Pen plotter is mostly used by working with media with a variety of pens or several pens including colored pens. This plotter is basically used for printing on paper or printing in transparent plastic. But generally, these kinds of plotters generate a streak while drawing on paper or on clear plastic that continues on the whole output.
Drum Plotter
This is the old technology of the plotter. It uses a drum where the paper is fixed. As the drum rotates the paper also rotates as well as the pen creates the image. The printer can use more than one pen for multicolor graphics.
Flatbed plotter
In this plotter technology, the paper is placed on a flat surface instead of a rotating drum like on drum plotters. The paper is fixed on the bed and only the pens move to create the print. The bed for the plotter is big which means it can print bigger size images than the drum. Flatbeds are also designed to use multi-pens hence more colors for the graphic. Due to having multiple pens, they can draw complex diagrams very fast.
Inkjet plotters
They print similarly to inkjet printers where the ink comes from the nozzle and is sprayed on the printing material. Inkjet plotters are relatively cheap among all the other plotters. They can also be used for a variety of applications. This makes them ideal for most users. There are 2 main types of inkjet plotters namely piezoelectric and thermal. Piezoelectric used electric charges to apply ink onto the paper while thermal use heat.
Electrostatic Plotter
An electrostatic plotter produces faster image by charging the paper with high voltage. This voltage attracts toner, which is then melted on the paper with heat. This type of plotter is fast, but the quality is generally considered to be poor when compared to pen plotters.
