Ribbons

Good reasons to choose cab ribbons

TransferfolienIn thermal transfer mode, a special ribbon is heated by the print head selectively. The color layer of the ribbon melts and transfers onto the surface of the label:

  • Depending from the application and the label material, cab provides the three ribbon qualities wax, resin-wax and resin.
  • cab ribbons have a special back coating to better dissipate residual heat, avoid static electrification and friction. This improves the quality of the imprint and extends the lifecycle of the print head.
  • cab provides more than 20 types of ribbon for any application. Adapted specifically to cab printers, these ribbons offer a consistent high quality.

Wax ribbons

Wax ribbons

make sense particularly when printing on paper, because wax melts very well into the label material. With a low print energy, printing results with high contrast and good density can be achieved. Suitable for print speeds up to 300 mm/s

Color: black
Ink side: inside
Core diameter: 1"

Resin/wax ribbons

Resin/wax ribbons

make flexible in case of universal printing on smooth paper or plastics. The density is as good as with pure wax ribbons, however, they are more resistant to smear and scratching.

Color: black
Ink side: inside
Core diameter: 1"

Resin ribbons

Resin ribbons

have a perfect design for rough surroundings, when plastic labels are printed. This is mainly due to their ruggedness: Synthetic resin is scratch and smear proof and resistant to chemicals and oils. No high print energy is needed. Suitable for high printable resolutions up to 600 dpi

Color: black
Ink side: inside
Core diameter: 1"

Types resistant to washing and ironing on request

for highly resoluted printing with print speeds up to 250 mm/s. Fully smear- and scratch-proof. UL listed. For further features see resin ribbons above of this page.
