Thermal Transfer & Direct Thermal Overprinting

Allen Coding Systems were one of the original developers of thermal printers and thermal transfer technology, and have never stopped investing in R&D making the brand so successful and extracting the maximum in performance from the technology.

Thermal printers with widths from 53mm to a massive 213mm in a single head format, to multi head systems of up to 10 printheads across all available from a single source supplier means a standardised production floor and simply less headaches. Allen are the only supplier to have mastered all formats of thermal transfer printing.

Integration with host capital equipment is made simple with all manner of mounting systems and communication protocols. Vertical and horizontal flow wrappers, label applicators, carton erectors are just some of the systems where Allen Thermal Transfer Printers can be mounted.

State of the Art – Unique print head technology means longer life and better performance even in the most rugged of environments.

Ribbon Control and Save – Programmable to the smallest of margins, this feature ensures consumable ribbon is not wasted between prints and you only use what you need to.

Superior Connectivity – Serial, Ethernet, USB or control on board. Information can be easily extracted from ERP systems and downloaded directly to the printer. The options for control are endless.

Quick Ribbon Change – The patented Quick Release Spent Ribbon system may sound complicated, but in fact it’s a very simple change over system that ensure maximum machine up time.
