What is the difference between ribbon and ribbon?
The ribbon can be divided into flat pressure type and side pressure type. It is mainly for the type of label printers in the market. Generally, most brands use flat pressure type print heads. Flat pressure type ribbons are used. A few Japanese brand printers use side pressure. Type print head uses side-pressure ribbon. The outstanding carbon ribbon can maintain the print head, and the effect produced can be accurately attached to the paper, not easy to disperse, and not easy to fall off. Carbon ribbons can be classified into the following three types simply:
That is, wax and carbon black (assuming black ribbon) as the primary materials, as the product of the coating materials. Wax-based ribbon is the most economical and cheap ribbon. It is mainly used for printing on general paper. When using wax-based ribbon, it is necessary to pay attention to the cooperation with paper. Wax-based ribbon is suitable for raw materials with slightly uneven appearance and feel. It is not suitable for materials with lubricating appearance such as PET raw materials. Wax-based ribbons account for about 70% of the market share, and are commonly used for printing large paper labels such as wheat heads.
If the printed materials need to be resistant to solvents, high temperature, etc., for chemical product packaging, it may be necessary for high temperature resistance, for electrical heating parts, or it may be necessary to print on special PET and other chemical products. Resin ribbons can meet the above requirements because of the resin composition. However, this kind of ribbons are generally expensive, but the printing effect is still necessary to match the paper/printing medium to achieve the best printing level.
Mixed base ribbon
That is, a product that uses wax and resin mixture as the primary material as the coating material. The mixed share is changed according to the demand. It is mainly used for materials that are more lubricated in appearance. Generally, products with stricter appearance requirements are more suitable for use, such as the label of ordinary expensive products, which reflects the combination of the strengths of the above two types of ribbons. And made.
