Videojet Launches New Rough Texture Ribbon for Thermal Transfer Overprinters

New ribbon is designed to provide excellent print quality and adhesion on rough packaging materials

Chicago — Jan 26, 2018 – Videojet Technologies, a global leader in coding, marking and variable data printing solutions, has introduced a new Rough Texture black ribbon compatible with Videojet DataFlex® and Videojet 6200 series of thermal transfer overprinter (TTO) products. The ribbon features excellent adhesion and contrast when printing on rough surfaces such as Tyvek®, uncoated labels, paper tickets, Kraft paper and hang tags.

The new Rough Texture ribbon provides sharp print quality at high speeds, along with resistance to smudging and abrasion for code readability. It is formulated for superior light resistance, helping it to withstand environments where high light levels can fade prints produced with other ribbons. Like all Videojet TTO ribbons, this Rough Texture ribbon features advanced backcoat technology to help ensure excellent print quality and extended printhead life. This Videojet ribbon offering provides superior performance in many applications such as medical pouches and labels.

Videojet Rough Texture ribbon can be used to print logos, text, real-time dates and codes, including 2D Data Matrix and GS1-128 bar codes, directly on packaging materials. The ribbon is available in a standard size of 55mm wide by 1000 meters long to help increase productivity through longer run times and fewer ribbon changes compared to shorter ribbons. Additional ribbon widths are also available.

"Videojet works with manufacturers to identify new, growing and challenging applications that require unique solutions,” said Sherry Washburn, Business Unit Manager, Supplies at Videojet. “This ribbon is tailored to meet a growing need in the packaged foods, pharmaceuticals and medical device industries. Videojet is pleased to offer this solution that expands our TTO capabilities.”
