October 30, 2012 - Designed to increase uptime while subsequently reducing operator errors and environmental impact, 1200 m thermal transfer ribbon for DataFlex® Plus Thermal Transfer Overprinter (TTO) reduces number of requisite ribbon changes to extend run times. Variations include 1,200 m length for DataFlex Plus 53 mm printers and 700 m length for DataFlex Plus 107 mm printers. Thinness of construction lends to environmental sustainability.

Press release date: October 26, 2012

New ribbon length increases uptime, enhances code assurance and improves sustainability

WOOD DALE, Ill. – Videojet Technologies Inc., a world-leading manufacturer of coding, printing and laser marking products, fluids and accessories for the product identification industry, today introduced a 1200m thermal transfer ribbon for the DataFlex Plus Thermal Transfer Overprinter (TTO). The longer length ribbon is designed to provide customers with increased uptime, reduced operator errors and lower environmental impact. With 20 percent more length than the standard 1000m ribbon, the longer length will reduce the number of ribbon changes required, leading to more prints per roll and significantly longer runtimes.

“We developed the new longer length ribbon in response to customer feedback as they look to optimize their high resolution package printing,” said, Chirag Dua, Business Unit Manager - TTO, for Videojet. “With the longer ribbon, customers enjoy reduced line stops, improved uptime and increased output. Additionally, they benefit from placing fewer supply orders and less packaging waste.”

The longer thermal transfer ribbon will be available in a 1200m length for new DataFlex Plus 53mm printers and 700m for new DataFlex Plus 107mm printers. Already available on new printer models, enhanced software allows for use of the longer ribbon and provides other customer benefits. Upgrades are available from Videojet for currently installed DataFlex Plus printers to run the longer ribbon and take advantage of the new features.

Customer benefits include:
• More uptime: With longer length ribbons, a customer printing a 10mm high image at 100ppm will benefit from 19,000 more prints and 3.2 hours of additional runtime per roll of ribbon.
• Enhanced code assurance: Using Intelligent Date Rules found in the system software, supervisors can avoid specific dates (e.g., holidays) from being printed. A USB connection makes it easy to use scanners for increased code accuracy.
• Improved environmental sustainability: With a thinner construction compared to Videojet’s Standard ribbon, the new longer length ribbon creates less ribbon waste. Additionally, both customers and the environment will benefit from fewer ribbon shipments that will result in less packaging waste and potentially reduce CO2 emissions.
