Markem-Imaje announces the release of its new 1100 meter thermal transfer 3820 ribbons, designed for compatibility with both the SmartDate 3 and SmartDate 5 thermal transfer overprinters.
The new 1100 ribbons offer 500 extra meters when compared to their predecessors, the 3810 (600 m long ribbons), offering 45 percent more uptime and avoiding frequent ribbon changes. Besides, thanks to a more efficient manufacturing process, the 3820 have a ten percent smaller CO2 footprint compared to the 3810 and produce 20 percent less waste by having less packaging and 50 percent fewer plastic cores.
RoHS compliant, the new thermal transfer ribbons further add to the efficiency of the SmartDate technology. Offering the highest quality printing at the fastest speeds, the SmartDate leads the industry in thermal transfer printing.
