Flexible Packaging Ribbon- IIMAK

IIMAK manufactures high-quality, high-speed thermal ribbon

Flexible Packaging requires high-speed application of specialty thermal transfer ribbon material, printed directly on packages. Thermal transfer overprinting typically imprints date, price, lot number, or barcodes directly onto flexible packaging and requires a thermal ribbon that can meet the speed and quality demands of the food packaging industry.

IIMAK is a leading USA based manufacturer of near-edge wax-resin and resin ribbons developed specifically for the flexible packaging market and a proud partner of Barcode Factory.

In flexible packaging printing, speed matters and the IIMAK line of flexible packaging ribbons feature a specially formulated release layer that creates a quick release of the ink to the packaging material ensuring crisp, fully legible, dark imprints at speeds of 40 inches per second.

IIMAK manufacturers these thermal transfer ribbons to be used in overprinter machines such as: Markham, Matthews, VideoJet, Domino marking, Open Date, Allen Coding, Ice
