Videojet launches New Ultra Grade Ribbon for Thermal Transfer Overprinters

Wednesday, Jul 15, 2015

Videojet Technologies Inc., a world-leading manufacturer of coding, printing and marking products, as well as fluids and accessories for the product identification industry, has introduced an Ultra Grade black ribbon for the Videojet DataFlex® and 6X00 series of thermal transfer overprinter (TTO) products. These industry-proven printers are ideal for marking variable information such as date, time, batch code, ingredients, logos and marketing information onto flexible film packaging, labels and glossy cards.

The new Ultra Grade black ribbon comes in lengths up to 1200 meters for extended run times with fewer ribbon changes, helping increase throughput of coded products per roll of ribbon. This new supply offering from Videojet also delivers improved print quality at high speeds and in both high and low temperature environments, compared to the standard Videojet black ribbon. The Ultra Grade black ribbon is available in a variety of widths and provides excellent contrast, rub and scratch resistance, and heat resistance for optimal performance in a wide range of application settings.

“The new Ultra Grade ribbon for Videojet TTO products offers enhanced sensitivity and compatibility with various substrates such as coated papers, metallic foils and poly films,” said Heidi Wright, Business Unit Manager for Supplies at Videojet. “This high-performing ribbon can be used for a number of flexible packaging applications, and is another example of how Videojet continuously focuses on delivering products that meet and often exceed manufacturers’ printing requirements.”

The Ultra Grade black ribbon is the latest product offering in the Videojet line of thermal transfer ribbons. Featuring advanced backcoat technology, all Videojet ribbons help ensure outstanding print quality and extended printhead life. These ribbons are engineered for optimal use in Videojet TTO printers, which are widely utilized throughout the snack food, bakery and confectionery markets, and demonstrate excellent performance for a variety of applications, including bagged snacks, fresh and frozen vegetables, meat and poultry, dried fruit and candy.
