Thermal transfer overprinters are a cost-effective way to improve the speed and efficiency of your operations while enhancing your brand experience. These printers are capable of handling low-volume production lines as well as high-volume coding applications, both in continuous and intermittent modes. TTO printers can print various types of messages, including barcodes or QR codes, text, images, logos and even marketing messages.
Thermal transfer coders are used in a wide range of coding and marking applications, including healthcare, retail, food and drink manufacturing and other industries. The chemicals used to create the heatare safe, non-toxic and recyclable. The thermal printer head technology gives print resolution, ideal for printing on plastic labels. These versatile coding machines are also capable of printing on a wide range of substrates (card, plastic film labels) with different finishes (gloss/matte). They can also handle a range of products from thin materials, such as paper labels, to thick, such as cards.
Thermal transfer printing produces highly readable,labels and decals. The process uses a ribbon that transfers an image to the substrate (typically paper) using heat, pressure and a metal printhead with specially formulated ink. The image is formed by forcing energy into the metal ribbon and onto the surface of the substrate, which then becomes part of the printed image. The metal ribbon can also be used to print different colored images on one substrate. Thermal transfer printing is excellent for high-speed applications because it can be easily programmed to create consistent prints.
