Markem-Imaje SmartDate Xtra thermal transfer ribbon
Markem-Imaje has introduced a thermal transfer ribbon for its SmartDate coders. Extra-resistant, flexible and cost effective, the ribbon is designed to improve thermal transfer printing on flexible packaging and increase production efficiency.
The ribbon is 25% more resistant than other standard market brands, according to the company. Prints are durable and don’t rub off regardless of application, wet or cold, dry or humid, or during transportation.
The ribbon is designed to offer extra flexibility — allowing for durable print on most flexible packaging substrates, even the most difficult plastic films and film coatings, and at high speeds, without compromising on legibility. Customers will only need one ribbon grade for most of their current and future packaging needs, reducing errors and inventory-related expenses.
The ribbon is made on an ultra-thin film that provides 83% added roll length compared with standard 600 m ribbons. Customers require fewer line stoppages and benefit from higher production line performance while increasing production throughput by over 90% (based on a standard application). Using ribbon also extends printhead lifetime since it requires less energy to transfer the ink onto the film. Fewer thermal printhead changes will ultimately reduce costs and improve overall productivity.
Available in black and a variety of widths, the ribbon allows for coding of text, logos, high-density graphics and barcodes (including 1D and 2D) at 300 dpi.
The ribbon is compliant with health and food regulations, including RoHS, CP65 and Reach, making it safe for food contact applications.
