Thermal Transfer & Direct Thermal Overprinting

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

Thermal transfer overprinters with widths from 53mm to a massive 300mm 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.

The thermal overprinter range starts with the XL5000 Series printing an area of 53mm x 80mm (intermittent) & 53mm x 300mm (continuous), extends to the NGT Series starting at the 2 inches, then progressing to 4, 6 and 8 inch wide unit.  Gone are the days of using two printers on one product, with the MLi Series multiple head print system up to 810mm wide variable print can be included on the front and back of your product.
