Identification Printing Systems

What is Thermal Transfer Printing?  Thermal Transfer Printing is a method using a thermal print head what applies heat to the surface of material being marked, using a ribbon to produce very durable and long lasting impressions/images or bar codes on a large variety of materials.  So whether it's low, medium or high volume printing HellermannTyton has the perfect solution for all your printing needs.  Single sided or double sided printing can be done on a choice of printers.

What types of ribbon are available for Thermal Transfer Printers?  HellermannTyton offer a wide range of ribbons specifically designed to maximise print performance for the recommended material.
