Ribbons for Bar Code Printers
There are three basic ribbon types; wax, wax-resin and resin. The characteristics of each ribbon is as follows:
Wax Ribbons – Most widely used for shipping, distribution and product identification labels. Different formulations are available depending on specific requirements. Wax ribbons are formulated in general purpose and low melting point for high speed printing.
Wax-Resin Ribbons – For labels which require increased scratch and smudge resistance. When used in combination with synthetic label stock, this ribbon will produce a label that is resistant to moisture and ultra-violet light. This type of label can stand up to exposure to rain, sun and cold. We provide wax-resin ribbons for flat head and near edge printers as well as in line printers.
Resin Ribbons – Most scratch and smudge resistant. Ideal for applications that require images to stand up to continuous use in factories and distribution centers. Certain formulations are steam press resistant and others are washable and dry-cleanable, used for Care Labelling.
Ribbon Widths – Ribbons must be ordered in specific widths. The width you use depends on the width of your label. If the ribbon is much wider than the label, you will be wasting money. On the other hand, if the ribbon is smaller than the label you use, you will be in danger of damaging the print-head of your printer.
Ribbon Length – It is desirable to use the longest ribbon your printer will accept so that you have to re-load less. Each printer has a recommended ribbon length, however, if you are not sure which length it is, we can suggest the proper ribbon for your printer.
