Thermal transfer printing is a method of printing thermal-transfer on paper or on some other materials such as cotton, spandex, felt, silk, ... by melting a layer Cover the Ribbon (ribbon) so that it is printed on the material to be printed.

Operation process of thermal transfer printer

Thermal transfer printing is done by melting the wax in the print head of the printer. Thermal transfer printing uses 3 main components: print head (fixed), carbon ribbon (ink) and printed substrate (substrate is usually paper, synthetic material, card or textile material) .

Three components are combined together to form a shape like a sandwich with ribbon in the between. The thermal -compatible print head, combined with the ribbon's electrical properties and the precise rheology of ribbon, is essential in high quality print image.

Print heads are available in resolutions: 203 dpi, 300 dpi and 600 dpi. Each dot is independently processed, it will heat up immediately when electronic addressing, with customizable temperature.

Thermal transfer printing process

When the elements are heated, it will immediately melt the wax or plastic base on the side of the ribbon facing the substrate, and this process, combined with constant pressure applied by the engine lock the print head, immediately transfer it to the base.

The element will cool down immediately when a dot is disabled. Finally when the substrate exits the printer, it is completely dry and can be used immediately.

The carbon ribbon is on the roll and is attached to the main shaft or roll holder in the printer. Ribbon used to be rewound by rotation axis, forming a tape "used". It is termed a "one-trip" ribbon because once it has been rewound, the used roll is discarded and replaced with a new one.

When printing thermal transfer is ideal
