At LabelExpo 2022, Ricoh is focusing on introducing several new direct thermal and thermal transfer ribbon products, highlighting their new Laser Re-writable labelling system.
New products and technologies at this year’s LabelExpo:
- 150PRx PF: Direct Thermal label designed for pharmaceutical applications such as soap, hand sanitiser, lotion and various cleaning solutions. Along with high chemical resistance, 150PRx is Ricoh Electronics’ first completely phenol-free DT formulation. It is 100% free of all BPA and BPS to ensure safe handling for converters and end users. 150PRx PF application areas include prescription labels, laboratory labels and product ID labels.
- B125CS Thermal Transfer Ribbon: Ricoh’s first ever general-purpose resin thermal transfer ribbon offers high adaptability to a wide range of receiving materials, enabling end users to use one ribbon for a variety of labelling needs. In addition to its adaptability, B125CS also maintains high resolution and sensitivity to achieve printer energy savings without sacrificing crisp letters on the finished image. Application areas include but are not limited to retail, warehousing, manufacturing and medical.
- Clear Direct Thermal Labels: A crystal clear Direct Thermal film designed for food packaging labels and films.
- Laser Rewritable Labelling System: This system utilises a dedicated label that can be rewritten repeatedly at high speed while it is still attached to a returnable box, eliminating the need for label replacement.
Ricoh’s extensive line of Direct Thermal Paper and Synthetic (film) products as well as Thermal Transfer Ribbon products are solution-oriented for variable information printing and barcode labelling applications. The products are specifically designed and well-suited for a variety of applications such as industrial warehouse, food and weigh scale, healthcare and pharmacy, courier, and more.
