TTO Printing for Flexible Packaging
Produce crisp and durable printing for your flexible packaging films and self-adhesive labels with Thermal Transfer Overprinters (TTO) from Matthews.
By allowing you to print easily onto generic film packaging, TTOs are an extremely cost-effective printing solution – especially for snack foods, confectionary and fresh produce.
If you need high-density barcodes and labels with longevity, a Thermal Transfer Overprinter is an excellent option. TTOs can print everything from simple date codes and batch codes to logos, product descriptions, ingredients lists, nutritional panels and fully compliant barcodes.
Advantages of thermal transfer printing
Thermal Transfer Overprinters use a high-resolution thermal printhead, which melts a wax and/or resin-based ink from a very thin thermal transfer ribbon (or “foil”) coating onto the surface of your product.
Efficient printing: TTO printers are designed for reduced downtime and maximised ribbon economy keep your business running smoothly.
High quality print results: The smooth, waxy surface of the thermal transfer ribbon creates less friction when applying your code onto the product, making it ideal for high-speed production lines
Long print-head life: Print-head life is frequently doubled with thermal transfer compared to direct thermal barcode printing
High-resistance codes: A thermal transfer barcode is highly resistant to any chemicals, humidity, UV rays, abrasion and climatic changes that your packaging may encounter on its journey through the supply chain.
