TTP 4000

Thermal Transfer Printer

Overview

The TTP 4000 is a programmable thermal transfer printer for high precision wire marking and meets even the most demanding quality requirements. Its innovative printing process allows automatic processing of cables with an outer diameter from 2 – 15 mm (0.08“ – 0.6“) with outstanding results. The thermal transfer printing process of the TTP 4000 opens up a whole range of wire marking possibilities: from text to barcodes and graphics, such as logos – all in excellent resolution for maximum readability.

  • Marking of cables with text, barcodes and graphics (e.g. logos)
  • Circumferential marking possible
  • Can be operated as stand-alone benchtop unit or be integrated in automatic processing lines
  • Simple programming

Function

The TTP 4000 combines two main processes in a single unit to achieve high quality abrasion-resistant printing results. In the first step, a transfer foil with the elements to be printed (text / graphics) is prepared. Subsequently those elements are printed on the cable in a hot stamp marking process. A special roller mechanism allows marking 360° around the cable. One of the benefits of circumferential marking is a significantly better readability as font sizes can be increased compared to conventional printing methods. Cables can also be marked on both sides if needed.

Simple Programming

  • Full integration with Cayman PC software
  • Simple import of graphics (PCX)
  • Entry of all parameters via panel, external keyboard or laptop possible
