Thermal Transfer Printers Make High Quality Printing Easier

by markem on February 3, 2012


At Markem-Imaje Philadelphia, our SmartDate Series of thermal transfer printers makes clear, high-quality printing on tray seals, pouches, vacuum packs, labels and other flexible packaging surfaces easier than ever – and super fast. Anyone in the production/manufacturing industries, particularly the food and mechanical engineering markets, knows that printing on these substrates can be challenging, to say the least. You demand exceptional printing, and the fastest print speed possible. The more reliable your thermal transfer coder, the less time your lines are down – which means less lost revenue.

More important than that; however, is satisfying your customers. Grocery and retail stores don’t want to sell items with labels and packaging that cannot be easily read. Who can blame them? There is really no use in coding products with “best before” dates and other product data (ingredients, nutritional value, etc.) if no one can read it. With Markem-Imaje, you have several options to choose from within our line of thermal transfer printers, including:

  • SmartDate X40 – Planet-conscious design, long-term cost control and greater uptime on the line. Reduces power consumption by as much as 50%. 1100m ribbon improves cost per print and reduces changeovers. Print speeds up to 600 mm/s. This is THE thermal transfer coder for those who are environmentally conscious.
  • SmartDate 5/128 – Wide format printing, ideal for nutritional statements, ingredient lists and multi-packs. With twice the variable print format capacity, you won’t need additional printers on your line. Change ingredients and rely on fast, accurate coding thanks to an intuitive touch screen.
  • SmartDate 5 – Food, pharmaceutical and personal care industries will benefit – accurate ingredient details and barcodes. WYSIWYG print preview on color-touch screen means no mistakes! Acceleration/deceleration for extreme substrates are no longer a challenge.
  • 8018 – Are you looking to replace manual hot foil technology with real-time digital coding? Improve profitability and your corporate image! Clean codes, reduced ribbon waste, and elimination of costly product recalls.

Markem-Imaje is proud to be a world leader in print technology; helping production/manufacturing industries save money, reduce downtime, control the impact that products have on their customers’ environment and provide exceptionally clear, reliable coding and marking on a wide array of substrates and products. If you’re in the market for a thermal transfer printer that is far superior to others on the market, trust Markem-Imaje.
