MULTIVAC thermal transfer printer (TTO)

  • Effortless operation utilizing a graphic user interface
  • Hygiene design
  • Quick ribbon change 
  • Automatic loading of print layouts
  • Minimal downtime
  • Long ribbon length
  • Low operating costs

MULTIVAC TTO printers are compatible with MULTIVAC labelling and marking systems from HMI 2/3 onwards, and they are suitable for printing on labels, films and trays.

Output of the MULTIVAC TTO thermal transfer printers

Thermal transfer printing is a digital printing process, in which individual elements of a thermal printhead heat up. This causes the pigment of the thermal transfer ribbon, which is coated with synthetic resin / wax, to melt and be transferred to a label or a packaging film.
Thermal transfer printers achieve a resolution of up to 300 dpi and, in addition to texts and variable data, they can also print barcodes, logos and graphics of the highest quality.

MULTIVAC TTO printers combine the following benefits for you:

Simple operation and cleaning

  • Very simple operation by means of the graphic user interface

  • Hygiene design

  • Quick ribbon change

High cost-effectiveness

  • Automatic loading of print layouts

  • Minimal downtime

  • Long ribbon length

  • Low operating costs


MULTIVAC thermal inkjet printer (TIJ)

  • Low-maintenance and efficient
  • Zero downtime printing with two printing heads
  • low servicing requirements since there is no need for cleaning intervals
  • Short drying time of the inks
  • Secure saving of recipes and the associated print data
  • Solvent- and water-based MULTIVAC inks from one source for perfect printing results

MULTIVAC thermal inkjet printers are suitable for the direct printing of film on thermoforming packaging machines and traysealers, as well as for the printing of labels on labelling systems. They can be operated flexibly and simply via the control terminal of a MULTIVAC packaging machine or MULTIVAC labelling or marking system. Up to four printing heads per controller can be arranged side by side, so that a maximum print height of 50.8 mm is achieved.

The MULTIVAC TIJ thermal inkjet printers combine many benefits for you:

Low-maintenance and efficient

  • Zero downtime printing with 2 printing heads (ZDT)

  • Low servicing requirements, since there is no need for cleaning intervals

  • Automatic parking position prevents the print cartridges from drying out

  • Short drying time of the inks

  • IP65 protective cover for the printer and print cartridge

Operating reliability and efficiency

  • Operation is completely integrated in the HMI 2/3 for maximum efficiency
    Operating reliability and efficiency

  • Automatic loading of print layouts with the recipe, so that potential input errors are avoided

  • Guaranteed use of the correct printer cartridges, since the data is saved in the recipe

  • Pixel reduction/trimming for QR and Data Matrix codes

MULTIVAC stamp printers (STP)

  • Low-cost marking solution
  • Simple operation
  • Quick change of ink cartridges
  • Rapid change of type and printing blocks
  • Suitable consumable material from one source

MULTIVAC stamp printers are used on direct web printers. They are a particularly cost-effective solution for printing simple print layouts, such as use-by date, batch number or logo. In the case of multi-row applications on thermoforming packaging machines, the direct web printers are equipped with one or two extension arms.

Performance features of the MULTIVAC STP 20 stamp printing system

Stamp printers are mechanical printers, which mark the print image with the aid of a
plug is created. The stamp is equipped with flexible type or printing blocks, and it is coloured via an ink cartridge with printing ink based on alcohol. The ink cartridges must be stored airtight to protect them against drying out.

MULTIVAC printing technology

The MULTIVAC STP 20 stamp printing system offers them many advantages:

Operation and servicing

  • Simple operation

  • Quick change of ink cartridge

  • Quick change of type and printing blocks

Economy

  • Low-cost marking solution

  • Suitable consumable material from one source

Success stories

Automated label and print inspection in the food industry
Rising demands in food labelling increase the complexity of information that has to be printed on labels. As the throughput of packaging lines continues to increase, it is no longer possible for the human eye to inspect label print thoroughly. Although present legislation does not yet stipulate the use of visual inspection systems for checking labels, investment in automatic inspection systems can be very beneficial for many reasons.
