Thermal Printing

Thermal printing is still a huge market for high quality labelling in a large number of industries.

With advanced labelling capabilities, we can thermal print labels fully customisable to your requirements. Thermal transfer printing may be the best option for short runs particularly for simple barcode labels. Some of these labels may also be pre-printed with customer specific information, and then overprinted within a customer’s manufacturing facility.

How do Thermal Printers Work?

R

Direct Thermal Printers

  • use chemically-treated paper that darkens when heated by a thermal print head. Direct thermal printers do not use separate ink, toner, or ribbon supplies. Direct thermal printers are most commonly used to print items such as receipts and shipping labels.
R

Thermal transfer printers

  • use a thermal print head to transfer a solid ink from a ribbon onto a label supply (usually made from vinyl, polyester, nylon, or other thicker materials) to produce a permanent print. Ribbon is usually made from wax, resin, or a combination of the two, and is bonded to the label supply surface with heat and pressure.

What are the Advantages of a Thermal Printer?

There are several reasons to consider an industrial thermal printer for your facility. Here are a few advantages of investing in a thermal printer:

R

Durable

Labels and signs created with thermal printers last longer and stand up to a wider variety of weather conditions than those printed with ink.

R

Versatile

Thermal transfer printers can print documents, labels, and signs that meet various needs, including durable arc flash labels, text- and graphics-based floor marking, and labels meant for extreme conditions such as cold storage.

Thermal Printable Materials

Thermal printing is still a huge market for high quality labelling in a large number of industries. The ability to print simple on demand labels requires quality top coatings and reliable materials. Our range of products in this area are specifically designed for use on thermal printing machine.  Samples can be provided if required.
