Product specificity

The world's best selling NearEdge wax-resin ribbon. An industry standard since its launch in 1996, approved by the main manufacturers of Near-Edge printers.

Application
ARMOR PROVIDES DURABLE SOLUTION FOR VITAMIN MANUFACTURER
 

ARMOR obtained a new customer this year who worked with several near-edge printers.
This end-user produces vitamins, and they began purchasing the ARMOR APR600 ribbon to print barcodes, expiration dates, and lot numbers on their products. The end-user needed to print with speed and clarity on white BOPP labels, so they came to the ARMOR distributor for a ribbon that would fit, and they found exactly what they were looking for.
 
This ARMOR APR600 ribbon produces an ink that resists to the smudge and rubing requirements of the application, so the label remains perfectly legible which is a must for health products.
 
The ARMOR APR600 ribbon resulted in a better performance on the Toshiba printers with a clearer, more durable print quality than the ribbon previously used.
 
The customer was extremely satisfied with the result they were able to obtain from this ribbon and continues to use the APR600 for their production needs. The ribbons also benefit from the lifetime warranty offered to every inkanto branded ribbons, another bonus from using ARMOR products.

CODING IN THE DAIRY INDUSTRY
 

The right solution for supply chain management and product identification

A New Zealand dairy producer has chosen inkanto Thermal Transfer wax resin ribbon APR®600 to meet their coding requirements based on print quality, reliability and cost per print. This ribbon is used in a wide range of consumer dairy products, which needs to meet the rigorous food labelling requirements for many different markets around the globe. The labels material is the standard paper label with a slight gloss finish.

Initially using a Direct Thermal application they found that the results weren’t up to standard causing barcode unreadability which resulted in supply chain rejections, along with increasing costs of printer maintenance due to consistent print head replacement.

Switching to inkanto APR®600 Thermal Transfer ribbon solved all of these issues immediately, improving barcode readability, reducing supply chain rejections, and increasing the life of the printers themselves by protecting the print heads from wear. Not to mention that the cost per print was ultimately no greater than when using a direct thermal printing method.

At its main production site, ARMOR recycles 100% of the film wastes generated by the production of ribbons.
