7. SUPPLY SPECIFICATIONS

ENGLISH VERSION EO1-33047

7.2 Ribbon

(11) Print Position Accuracy

When using RFID tag embedded media, the print position accuracy may exceed the guaranteed tolerance of ±1 mm in all issue modes.

It is required to check the print position accuracy for each media type.

(12) Paper Jam Error

Depending on the type of glue or the flexibility of labels, a label may come unstuck in front of the sensor unit, which cause a paper jam. Particularly, the frequency of paper jam could become higher on the condition of low operating temperature or use of short-pitchlabels.

It is required to check the media feed using the media to be used under the actual operating environment.

7.2 Ribbon

Please make sure that the ribbon being used is approved by TOSHIBA TEC. The warranty does not apply to any problem caused by using non-approvedribbons.

For information regarding TOSHIBA TEC approved ribbon, please contact a TOSHIBA TEC service representative.

NOTES:

1.To ensure print quality and print head life use only TOSHIBA TEC specified ribbons.

2.Too much difference in width between media and ribbon may cause ribbon wrinkles. To avoid ribbon wrinkles use a ribbon for proper media width shown in the above table. Do not use a ribbon that is narrower than media.

3.When discarding ribbons, please follow the local rule.

7.3 Recommended Media and Ribbon Types

7.3 Recommended Media and Ribbon Types

Media type

Description

Vellum paper and labels

General use for low cost applications.

Coated paper

Matt coated paper

 

General use including applications that require small letters and/or symbols.

 

Glossy coated paper

 

Used where a high-gradefinish is required

Plastic films

Synthetic film (Polypropylene, etc.)

 

This water-proofandsolvent-resistantmaterial has high physical strength

 

and low-temperatureresistance, but poor heat resistance (dependant upon

 

material). This material can be used for labels stuck to recyclable

 

containers, so it can be recycled in the same process.

 

PET film

 

This water-proofandsolvent-resistantmaterial has high physical strength,

 

and low-temperatureresistance as well as heat resistance. This material is

 

used for many applications, especially where high durability is required.

 

Mode/serial plate labels, caution labels, etc.

 

Polyimide

 

This material gives the best performance on heat resistance (greater than

 

PET film). It is often used for PCB labels as it can withstand passage

 

through a solder bath.

Ribbon type

Description

Vellum wax ribbon

This ribbon is mainly used for vellum paper and labels. It has a

 

very high ink density to cope with uneven printing surface

Standard wax ribbon

Good match for coated paper (Matt coat and glossy coat).

Smear-lessribbon (Wax resin ribbon)

Good match for coated paper. The printed image will resist water

 

and light rubbing.

Scratch and solvent resistance ribbon

Very good match for plastic films (synthetic paper, PET,

 

polyimide, etc.)

 

Scratch and solvent resistance

 

Heat resistance with PET and polyimide.

7.4 Care/Handling of Media and Ribbon

7.4 Care/Handling of Media and Ribbon

CAUTION!

Be sure to carefully review and understand the Supply Manual. Use only media and ribbons that meet specified requirements. Use of non-specifiedmedia and ribbons may shorten the head life and result in problems with bar code readability or print quality. All media and ribbons should be handled with care to avoid any damage to the media, ribbons or printer. Read the guidelines in this section carefully.

Do not store the media or ribbon for longer than the manufacturer’s recommended shelf life.

Store media rolls on the flat end. Do not store them on the curved sides as this might flatten that side causing erratic media advance and poor print quality.

Store the media in plastic bags and always reseal after opening. Unprotected media can get dirty and the extra abrasion from the dust and dirt particles will shorten the print head life.

Store the media and ribbon in a cool, dry place. Avoid areas where they would be exposed to direct sunlight, high temperature, high humidity, dust or gas.

The thermal paper used for direct thermal printing must not have specifications which exceed Na+ 800 ppm, K+ 250 ppm and Cl- 500 ppm.

Some ink used on pre-printedmedia may contain ingredients which shorten the print head’s product life. Do

not use labels pre-printedwith ink which contain hard substances such as carbonic calcium (CaCO3) and kaolin (Al2O3, 2SiO2, 2H2O).

For further information, please contact your local distributor or your media and ribbon manufacturers.
