Thermal Transfer Printers (SmartDate Series)

How it works...

Thermal transfer technology combines a thermal printhead and a polyester ribbon coated with ink on one side. Heat transfers the ink from the ribbon onto the packaging film that is marked as it passes under the thermal printhead. The thermal printhead is made up of a row of independent tiny resistors mounted on a ceramic support. These resistors are then activated based on the characters to be printed, melting the ink on the ribbon and “transferring” the selected characters to the packaging film.

Can't thank him enough!

The service is excellent, having received a desperate phone call late one night, Tony travelled overnight, with a loan coder to be on our doorstep at 6am the following morning and get us out of trouble. Can’t thank him enough!
