Thermal transfer printing

How does thermal transfer printing work?

In thermal transfer printing, heat (= thermal) is used to transfer wax from the thermal transfer ribbon (= transfer) to the label. The ink is transferred via the thermal print bar (= print head). In many cases, modern thermal printers print both: direct thermal printing and thermal transfer printing. The big advantage of thermal transfer printing is that also non-thermosensitive materials, i.e. common non-thermosensitive materials such as polyester, PP, PET, PE and papers, can be printed for serial number labels, food labels, beer and wine labels (lot and consumption period) and others.
