They have a POS system, touch screen front counter, touch screen in prep area for call in with POS receipt printer in prep area (doesn't have a problem with flour). I think you're thinking another touch display over the prep area. Would require me to start an entirely new business.
The current POS prints the order, they see it, tear off and stick in the clip over prep.
You haven't explained quite what your business is. You have described why desktop all-in-one printers are unsuitable for use in kitchens.
There are "kitchen printers" on the market. These look like "POS receipt printer" using paper rolls and thermal or impact print mechanisms.
Google finds lots of these.
Could there be problems with thermal paper in prep areas? Presumably any supplier of POS equipment could supply such things.
It seems that, as a minimum, you need to get away from sheet-fed printers.
Getting away from paper entirely seems to be to be a better idea for all sorts of reasons, including reliability (no paper to run out, backup) and hygiene (no need to touch screens or printers while handling food).
