How do you select the right ribbon for your Thermal Transfer printer? First, it is important to understand the different types of ribbons.
Wax Ribbons are the most common ribbons. Printing with a wax ribbon is normally done at the lower end of the heat-setting on the printer. The easy transfer of the ink onto the substrate ensures a hassle-free printing process. Wax Ribbons are mostly used on flat-head printers and typical applications include labels for shipping, warehouse, and shelves.
Wax-Resin Ribbons are the most versatile in application. These ribbons are typically used on food and beverage packaging as well as automotive and outdoor applications. Wax-Resin Ribbons are the preferred choice when it comes to inline printing at high speed, because of the quick release of the ink. A great choice for printing on flexible substrates. Printing with this type of ribbon is done at medium heat-setting on the printer and the ribbons are available for both flat-head and near-edge printers.
Resin Ribbons are used for the most durable applications – for example for the printing of pharmaceutical items, outdoor applications and engine parts. Printing with Resin Ribbons requires a higher heat-setting on the printer to activate the binder that fixes the ink to the substrate. This type is available for both flat-head and near-edge printers.
