Ribbons for Thermal Transfer Printers:


Thermal transfer printers (TTO printers) use ribbons as the carrier for ink. The ribbon is made up of 3 main parts:

  1. Back coating to reduce friction against the printhead
  2. Carrier film to support the ink layer
  3. Ink layer made of wax/ resin depending on substrate to be printed

A thermal transfer printhead contains small heaters which heat up under control and transfer thermal energy to the ribbon. This causes the ink to melt, leave the carrier and be deposited on the substrate.
