Thermal Transfer Overprinters (TTO)
Codetronix are the UK’s exclusive supplier of Easyprint Thermal Transfer Printers – the ideal solution when printing onto polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP), paper, labels and other flexible packaging materials. We provide a comprehensive range of high-speed industrial thermal transfer printers for Intermittent and Continuous motion vertical and horizontal packaging machinery, thermoforming machines and labellers.
Industrial Thermal Transfer Printers
Easyprint thermal transfer printers are available in 32mm, 53mm and 128mm printhead widths to help match your printing requirements. They offer a range of cost saving features including ribbon economy, ribbon retraction, column mode and the all-electric operation of the Compact Series. It is a reliable, simple to use and durable technology.
Our industrial thermal transfer printers will always result in a sharp, clear image without compromising print speed or production output, and they eliminate any costs associated with harmful waste or storage of consumables.
How Thermal Transfer Printers Work
There are essentially two types of operation for our thermal transfer printers:
Continuous Mode – In continuous mode the substrate is moved continuously such as on a horizontal form fill seal (HFFS) machine like a flow wrapper. The print head is stationary and prints while the substrate is moving.
Intermittent Mode – In this printing mode the substrate is moved intermittently for example on a vertical form fill seal (VFFS) machine, labeller or tray sealer. The print head is moved over the substrate by the printer while the substrate is stationary.
All Easyprint industrial thermal, transfer printers use the simple to use EasyView graphical user interface. As well as choosing messages it is also possible to create messages line side and a preview of the chosen message design to ensure that the correct code is printed on your product.
An emulator is also available for specific existing software packages on site meaning you do not need to redesign messages.
Industrial Thermal Transfer Printers for Your Production
As a replacement to ‘hot stamp’ technology, our industrial thermal transfer printers are a perfect fit. With a small footprint and easy to use touchscreen interface they will produce very high-quality text, barcodes and graphics. If you need real time codes such as dates, times, lot codes or batch codes on your labels or flexible packaging film we would recommend the Compact32D with our labeller or window bracket.
Printing onto flexible packaging in equipment such as flowwrappers, bagging machines and sachet makers, tray sealers and thermoformers is made easy by utilising a wide range of brackets and frames. The Easyprint thermal transfer printers have been designed to make swapping out your existing printer simple to do – it just fits into an existing bracket with our adaptor plates, minimising installation time. Many fast moving consumer goods sectors use thermal transfer printers, such as beverage (coding onto labels before they are applied), food (snacks, confectionery, meat) and healthcare (dressings).
