“Thermoprint” is a thermal transfer electronic printer suitable to write texts, bar codes, dates, logos etc. directly and automatically on plastic films, paper films and flexible polycoupled.
It is electronic because it prints variable data from a keyboard in real time and by a digital technology.
It is a thermal transfer device because it utilizes for printing a dry ink ribbon. This ribbon, heated by the print head, transfers ink directly to the film with texts and pre-set graphics.
It is particularly recommended for horizontal or vertical packaging machines and particularly for thermoforming machines with intermittent moving films, for large printing areas. Film, during printing operations, must be still.“Thermoprint“ 359 can work only in the intermittent mode. In this model a sliding device translates on film under printing.
This sliding device includes the printing little head and the ribbon container group. When printing starts the little head drops, the sliding device moves in parallel or orthogonal or differently angulated to the film direction, according to the preset run.
