Thermal Transfer Printers

There are two types of thermal printers: Thermal Transfer Printers and Direct Thermal Printers

Thermal transfer printers use a digital thermal printing method that produces durable, long-lasting printed images on a wide variety of media by applying heat & melting a coating of thermal transfer ribbon onto the printed material.

With the ability to accept a wide range of heat sensitive media including paper, polyester, and polypropylene materials, these devices can print durable wristbands, asset tags, specialised labels, barcodes, tickets, and more. This thermal transfer technology process, method or technique is used for all long life/long-term markings like asset tags, inventory labels, durable labels, outdoor, freezer applications, and more.

The alternative direct thermal printers print without ink, toner, or ribbon and as such are noted for their simplicity.

BIXOLON’s range of 2” and 4” desktop label printers offer either thermal transfer printing to produce labels of high-quality for printed tickets, wristbands, and more.
