TTO is the preferred method to print on foil/ribbon/flexible packing. Other options, like inkjet or laser, are possible. NOVEXX Solutions offers a wide range for direct printing via TTO. Explore the XTO intermittent or continuous and its several versions in our overview brochure.
When a heating element is activated and its head is heated, the ink layer melts in the foil and is transferred to the film. Its smooth surface ensures exact color imprinting and achieves precise print quality. Within the industry, the term TTO is used here. this is a printing process that the XTO ie/ce also has and is often used in the pharmaceutical and food industries.
