Expanding Applications on the Thermal Transfer Printing
Abstract:Thermal transfer printing technology has been applied primary for ticket printing, label, PC' Peripherals and so on.
However, the thermal transfer printer is capable of transferring wide variety inks on the ribbon directly onto the printing material. The foil gold/silver, opaque white and other functional ribbons are available for replacement of the ordinary flexo or gravure printing process in short-run applications. Also, the Retransfer Printing Process using Retransfer Sheet has started using for the printing on variety of hard materials such as such as CD and plastic card. The thermal transfer printing has entered the next generation of technical research for the expanding applications.

For more than 25 years, NIP has been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in non-impact and digital printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems, including drop-on-demand ink jet, wide format ink jet, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based electrophotographic printers, production digital printing systems, and thermal printing systems, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields.
Since 2005, NIP has been held in conjunction with the Digital Fabrication Conference.
