This option provides the best code clarity and allows not only text or numbers, but also logos and barcodes to be applied to the label. It is the most expensive option we offer.
A thermal transfer Coder also uses ribbon and has a 2" by 2" area that can be utilized. Codes are actually developed on a PC and saved to a thumbdrive. The thumbrive is inserted into the coder and the user can then select from a list the code that is currently running. Dates and times can be programmed to pick up the new date automatically from an internal clock. Codes can be turned vertically or horizontally, and work on any label material.
The unit is more expensive and so is the ribbon, but the flexibility and quality are much greater with this option.
