Unlike other generalist coding technologies, Thermal Transfer Overprinting, or TTO, has been engineered to work specifically on flexible substrates including flexible packaging materials and labels. TTO is a digital printing technology that overcomes many of the deficiencies if analog printing solutions like hot stamp/hot foil and roller coders.
Thermal Transfer Overprinting is widely used in the following products as the ideal coding solution:
In terms of machinery, our TTO ribbons have been employed in the following types of packaging machinery.
Vertical Form, Fill and Seal machines used to package snacks, candy, powders and hardware:
Horizontal Form, Fill and Seal machines, known as ‘Flowrappers’ used to package food products and general packaging:
Thermoform and Tray-sealing machines used to package Cheese, Fruit and Processed Meats:
Thermal Transfer Overprinting is capable of responding to virtually all flexible packaging applications. This includes runnning at slow, moderate or high printing speeds and coding small, simple messages or large format codes with a lot of variable data. Whatever your flexible packaging application, Transam can offer your production line an efficient solution with a low cost of ownership.
