Ribbons for near edge printers


Does your thermal label printer use near edge print technology? To achieve higher print speeds, the near edge print head is angled up to 45 degrees, with the heating elements located at the edge of the printhead. Therefore near edge ribbons must contain a release/primer layer, which allows the ink to quickly transfer to the substrate and creates a sharper image on the substrate. This unique ribbon chemistry limits ribbon selection to wax/resin or resin thermal transfer ribbon formulations. Manufacturers of near edge printers include, Avery Dennison, Bell Mark, Toshiba, Markem and Video Jet.
