Thermal Transfer technology utilizes a thermal printhead consisting of individual ceramic resistors that are selectively heated to transfer the desired image from a coated ribbon directly onto the substrate.
Highly reliable technology that requires near zero-maintenance
Thermal Transfer technology utilizes a thermal printhead consisting of individual ceramic resistors that are selectively heated to transfer the desired image from a coated ribbon directly onto the substrate. TTO technology is highly reliable—in the unlikely event of a problem, simply changing the print head gets the printer running again.
Control Print’s unique TTO design eliminates motors, which further reduces chances of a breakdown.
Benefits of this ribbon-based technology include
Highly reliable solution with minimal downtime
Near-zero maintenance requirements
Simple to operate
No mess: ribbon ink is solid and transfers instantly upon printing
Suitable for long shutdowns and intermittent operations
Large print area suitable for generic coding applications
TTO printers offer a large print area, up to 107 x 100 mm using a large print head. Large print area TTO ideal for generic coding or other application requiring printing of large amount of information, such as ingredients labels.
Generic coding allows you to print product information on “generic” packages, drastically cutting the different packages needed to store and distribute.
Generic coding simplifies packaging-related storage and reduces waste
Companies with a variety of products often find themselves in the middle of a storage nightmare. Each SKU variant requires different packaging, all of which needs to be ordered and stored.
In addition frequent changes in SKU due to marketing requirements often causes wastage of pre-printed packaging.
With the TTO, you can print all the variable information on “generic” packages that contain branding and other rarely-changing information.
High-quality prints for premium look
The TTO offers print resolution up to 300dpi, delivering high quality prints that compliment your products.
Crisp looking logos and symbols
Ideal for printing a lot of information in small spaces
Highly readable bar and datamatrix codes
Simple technology that's easy to use – even without technical training
TTO uses simple, effective engineering and design. There are no intimidating electronics or hydraulics. Most problems can be solved by changing either the print head or the ribbon—operations that don’t require trained engineers. As a result, operators are comfortable using the machine.
Touchscreen with intuitive user-interface for easy operations
The TTO is equipped with a large touchscreen and visual user interface, making things even easier for new users. The icon-based interface will be immediately familiar to anyone who has used a smartphone.
Range of food-safe ribbons for all printing needs
We carry a range of food-packaging-safe ribbons for the wide variety of printing needs within the industry.
Suitable for most coding requirements
For applications where print adhesion is crucial
For high adhesion applications that also require higher line speeds
User level control eliminates coding errors
Coding errors are never more than one typo away. In fast-moving production lines a simple operator error can lead to hundreds of rejects.
Centralized message creation
User level control technology removes message creation from the factory floor, eliminating the vast majority of coding errors. Messages are created and validated by authorized personnel on a central computer. The operator only has to choose the message from the message database and start the job.
User level control can further restrict access to service functions to trained service personnel. This prevents untrained users from accidentally causing problems.
Moving message creation away from the factory floor eliminates the most common source of coding errors
Easy line integration
The TTO is easy to set up and integrates into almost any production line.
