Thermal transfer technology makes it possible to modify variable data for each printing operation in real time without interrupting the production chain and minimising the data editing and ribbon replacement time.
HIGH QUALITY AND STRENGTH
The thermal transfer printing process produces high-resolution, sharp and clean printing results which are resistant to deterioration caused by scratching, rubbing, frequency washing, exterior elements such as oil, petrol and alcohol.
The use of thermal transfer technology means being able to print products in all situations, either stationary or moving. The surfaces are modified in real time to align the printer acting on the surface.
EASE OF USE
The device implements an integrated electronic unit and touchscreen for adjusting printing parameters or editing data retrieved directly from the memory of the device, from a USB flash drive or a connected computer.
EASE OF INSTALLATION
Eidos printers are designed to be easily integrated in all production and packaging lines. They implement proprietary firmware for interfacing with the central server and other printers.
In addition to increasing productivity, thermal transfer technology avoids the use of liquid ink that have a high environment impact and the need for drying and minimises the space needed for stocks in the warehouse.
THREE PRODUCT FAMILIES
THE ADVANTAGES OF THERMAL TRANSFER
VS THE INKJET PRINTING METHOD
With respect to inkjet printing, thermal transfer technology guarantees better readability and image quality with fast and easy maintenance. No UV lights or liquid inks which are difficult to dispose of are used.
VS THE PAD PRINTING METHOD
With respect to pad printing, thermal transfer technology does not require the use of mechanical plates and consequently increases flexibility in case of batch changes and date variations. Furthermore, no mechanical parts such as the pad or the like need to be replaced.
VS THE LASER PRINTING METHOD
With respect to laser printing, thermal transfer technology guarantees faster printing, better readability and lower installation costs. No fume extractor is needed. No need to clean or frequently recharge the laser source.
