As a kind of printing consumables, label ribbons have different classifications according to different materials, different sizes, and different models to meet different usage needs. Then in actual use,


How should we distinguish the label ribbon?


First,Classification according to printer model
(1) B series label ribbon: suitable for Brother brand label printers.
(2) C series label ribbon: suitable for Casio brand label printers.
(3) D series label ribbon: suitable for Delta (DYMO) brand label printers.
(4) E series label ribbon: suitable for Epson and KingJim brand label printers.


Second, according to the material classification
In addition to the well-known PVC and PET, label ribbons also have different materials such as hot stamping cloth, self-adhesive cloth, ribbon, magnet, stainless steel, aluminum alloy, etc. Different materials have their own advantages and functions.
(1) PVC
Also known as polyvinyl chloride, the material is quite rigid and has good chemical resistance. It is the world's largest production of general-purpose plastics. It is widely used. The improved PVC also has stronger stability.
(2) PET
The molecular structure of PET is highly symmetrical and has a certain crystal orientation ability, so that it has good tensile strength, stiffness and hardness, and PET has good optical properties and weather resistance.
(3) Ribbon
Ribbon label ribbon, also called satin ribbon label ribbon, has a texture that feels like silk, soft material, smooth surface, thicker than ordinary ribbons, and has different background colors. It can print text, pictures and other elements on the ribbon.
(4) Hot stamping cloth
The cloth hot stamping label ribbon is a special fiber material uncoated label ribbon. The texture is a thin transparent film, which is very soft to the touch. It can adhere to cotton, linen, polyester cotton, Fabrics made of chemical fiber and silk can be washed or dry-cleaned without falling off.
(5) Magnet
The front of the magnetic label is the item information indicating surface, which can be edited according to the user at will. The back is a sheet block magnet, which can be adsorbed on document shelves, bookshelves, shelves and other places. Commonly used in shopping malls, document rooms, libraries, warehouses and other places.


Three, according to the label attribute classification
At present, Aimo has the most comprehensive types of compatible label ribbon products in China, including: standard film label, standard non-film label, cable label, F-type label, fluorescent label, confidential label, ribbon label, pattern label, strong adhesive Labels, cloth hot stamping labels, frosted labels, high-speed printing labels, heat shrinkable tube labels, magnetic labels, embossed labels, etc., can be distinguished according to their characteristics.
(1) Standard Laminated Label Ribbon 
The surface of the standard film-coated label ribbon has a strong protective film, which makes the content of the label not easily interfered by the external environment. It has good corrosion resistance, abrasion resistance, waterproof, high and low temperature resistance, and non-fading characteristics, and can be attached to Most surfaces, including glass, stainless steel, plastic, resin, acrylic, polypropylene, coated wood, etc., and even some rough and irregular surfaces.
(2) Cable label ribbon 
This kind of ribbon is more suitable for marking on cylindrical or curved surfaces, and can be wrapped and flagged to mark various wires, cables, optical fibers, pipes, test tubes, curved or cylindrical surfaces.
(3) Strong adhesive label ribbon
Its viscosity is twice that of standard film-coated label ribbons, and it is suitable for a wider range of materials (some rough, non-smooth, and textured surfaces) and more extreme environments, such as metal or plastic surfaces (computer cases, monitors, etc.) , Engineering plastics, shelves, etc.
(4) High-speed and high-precision label ribbon
High-speed and high-precision label ribbons can be used on PT-9700PC/9800PCN. The maximum speed can reach 80mm/sec, and the maximum precision can reach 360X720dpi. It is mainly used in the need to print a large number of labels in a short time, such as the production line of the manufacturing industry or the need to print logos with graphics or logos to optimize the jagged edge of the text.
(5) Cloth hot stamping label ribbon
This is a special fiber material non-laminated label. After printing, you can use an electric iron to stick the label on the cotton fabric at high temperature. It can be washed or dry-cleaned 30 times. The ironing temperature is adjusted to 160-180 degrees Celsius. When ironing, the label is covered with a thin cloth, and the text on the folding ironing is clearer, and it also avoids ironing the fabric or fading due to high temperature. It is best to keep the ironing time at 10-15 seconds to ensure a firm paste.
(6) Wax paper missing label ribbon
It is a special ribbon that leaves permanent image marks on the metal surface after ionization by special equipment. Its unique charm lies in the easy realization of marking on the metal surface without any pigments or dyes, and it is suitable for small batch and various types of manufacturers to mark on the metal surface.
(7) Heat shrinkable tube label ribbon
It has the functions of high temperature shrinkage, soft flame retardant, insulation and corrosion resistance. When in use, pass the cable through the heat shrinkable tube. After heating with a heat gun or blower, the heat shrinkable tube will shrink and wrap the cable. It is widely used in insulation protection of various wiring harnesses, solder joints, inductances, rust prevention and corrosion prevention of metal pipes and rods, and identification.
