Wondering where your profits are going? What solutions are you utilizing for printer ribbons? There are so many different types of ribbons to choose from. If you choose the wrong application or ribbon, it will quickly affect your budget. A thermal transfer printer prints on a substrate (such as paper or other materials) by melting a coating of the ribbon. This creates a glue so it stays on the material.
Another print option is thermal ribbons. There are three main types—wax, wax/resin or pure resin. These are usually in black ink and come in a roll form. The ink formulas are coated on one side of a thin polyester backing. When heat is applied from the printhead, the ink releases from the carrier and sticks to the label or tag.
Rising costs of consumable products in a manufacturing or distribution center are always a budget concern. As a supplier, we are constantly looking for quality products to offer our customers that provide some relief to your bottom line increases.
Quick Pak Inc offers the economical TR4055T ribbon formulation designed for the everyday printing of general label formats. This ribbon is perfect for applications that do not require high print speeds (10 ips+), tiny characters or rotated barcodes. The TR4055T features a blend of waxes and a unique resin that are combined in an ink that flows smoothly at low print energy to give uniform coverage on low-end thermal transfer substrates.
Other ribbon characteristics include:
- Designed to provide excellent performance in everyday applications on the most commonly used
substrates; including coated and uncoated paper and tags
