Thermal transfer technology

Thermal transfer technology combines a thermal printhead and a polyester ribbon coated with ink on one side. Heat transfers the ink from the ribbon onto the packaging film that is marked as it passes under the thermal printhead. The thermal printhead is made up of a row of independent tiny resistors mounted on a  ceramic support. These resistors are then activated based on the characters to be printed, melting the ink on the ribbon and “transferring” the selected characters to the packaging film.


A wide range of approved high quality thermal transfer ribbons for both flat and near edge printheads. All stored in our temperature controlled warehouse an Al Quoz Dubai U.A.E.


Flexible packaging like flow-wrappers, bags, tray seals, pouches, sachets, vacuum packs or labels. Such as ULMA machines supplied by Al Thika Packaging.
