These thermal transfer printers allow you to print your technical labels yourself (barcode labels, RFID labels, textiles labels…) according to your needs in a professional way, while obtaining a final label of a quality close to the one we offer ourselves.
From small mobile thermal printers that can be taken into the field to industrial strength thermal printers, you can easily find the right thermal transfer printer for printing a barcode label for example.
Thermal transfer technology is optimal for printing barcodes on labels or thermal transfer ribbons. These thermal printers, unlike inkjet or laser printers, provide better protection for the label print.
The label printers we offer in various forms are SATO printers or CAB printers, a renowned manufacturer and supplier of label printers.
The label printing will be as easy and fast as possible. We can also supply you with the ink ribbons and label rolls that match the thermal transfer printer you have.
If you're looking to buy your first label printer, we recommend you read our article on the top 10 questions to ask yourself before buying a printer.
There are two methods of printing with our label printers:
Depending on the printing options, you can compare our self-adhesive label printers. And if you are not sure which printing option is right for you, we offer printers with a choice of thermal transfer or direct thermal printing.
There are many types of printers, but they can be divided into three categories. Depending on your purpose and environment, it is best to choose a certain model:
This classification obviously applies to printers supplied by SBE Direct:
To better understand the difference between each printer, I suggest you read the following article: How to choose the best label printer? which will allow you to compare all our printers according to several features.
At SBE direct you can choose between our different rolls of polypropylene thermal labels, polyester labels (metallic colour or white labels), destructible labels and VOID labels.
Depending on the size of the labels you choose, you need to choose the right label printer. Not all printers accept all label sizes. Here is a summary table of the widths accepted by our printers:
|Sato CL4NX Plus||104mm|
|CAB MACH 4S||(203dpi) : 104 mm - (300dpi) 108,4 mm – (600dpi) 105,7 mm|
|Cab EOS2 ou EOS5||108 mm pour 203 dpi et 105,7 pour 300dpi|
|Cab SQUIX4||(203dpi) : 104 mm - (300dpi) 108,4 mm – (600dpi) 105,7 mm|
|Cab SQUIX 2||(300 dpi) : 56,9 mm - (600dpi) : 54,1|
Thermal transfer printing requires the installation of ink ribbons in the label printer. The heat melts the ink to deposit it on the self-adhesive label. Our ink ribbons are all internally inked and therefore compatible with all our printers. We recommend that you buy the consumables for your label printer brand, so for SATO printers it is advisable to use SATO ink ribbons to ensure compatibility.
The quality of the ink should be chosen according to the label material. If you have chosen a synthetic label (polypropylene, polyester, etc.), we recommend a resin or higher resin ink. Wax and wax/resin are more suitable for paper labels.
There are specialised textile label printers that require different labels and ink ribbons. SBE offers you to create your own textile labels:
With our RFID thermal transfer label printer, you can now read and encode RFID labels yourself easily and consistently. Print your own advanced smart labels directly from your premises. This RFID label printer gives you the ability to customize your own Ultra High Frequency (UHF) smart labels which equates to wavelengths between 860 and 960Mhz.
