SmartDate Xpert and Xceed Thermal Transfer Ribbons

Recently, Markem-Imaje introduced two of our newest thermal transfer ribbons designed to be used with our SmartDate coders on flexible packaging. The launch of our SmartDate Xpert and Xceed ribbons completes our range of SmartDate X thermal transfer ribbons, a complete family of ribbons that make it possible for customers to make the most of our SmartDate coders. The new Xpert ribbons are designed to stand up in environments that are extremely hot, as well as other environmental conditions many manufacturers find challenging. This ribbon provides a resin base that offers amazing resistance to solvents, oil, and abrasion, and can be used for coding up to 600mm/s with the SmartDate X60. What can manufacturers expect from the SmartDate Xceed thermal transfer ribbons? Exceptional print quality even in production with fast line speeds, again in the most demanding environments. The SmartDate Xceed is available in black and white, and is compatible with corner edge thermal printheads for the highest possible quality codes. Prior to the release of these two new thermal transfer ribbons for use with SmartDate coders, we introduced the SmartDate Xtra ribbons which offer coding that's 25% more durable than codes produced using similar ribbons. Available in 900m and 1,100m lengths, the Xtra ribbons reduce downtime on the production line. All ribbons are certified by our company, providing customers with product and thermal printhead warranties. Essentially, manufacturers who code on flexible packaging materials will enjoy superior solutions when it comes to high density graphics, 2D coding, ultra-sharp text, and logos. For manufacturers who desire exceptional coding on flexible packaging materials, we recommend our line of SmartDate coders, designed to meet the specific needs of a wide array of industries.
