Colours –

Red, Green, and Blue (RGB) are the primary colours of light,

 and form white color when, they are mixed.

Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow are the complementary colours of

Ink-Jet Method - RGB Band and form Black when mixed together. This

 concept of CMY color model is widely used in printing technologies.

With Inkjet printing method droplets of ink are forced through a small nozzle and spread on the media. Primarily 3 major types of ink jet printing methods explain the printing process.

a.    Bubble Jet Printing Method

Tiny resistors create heat, and this heat vaporizes ink to create a bubble. As the bubble expands, some of the ink is pushed out of a nozzle onto the paper. When the bubble "pops" (collapses), a vacuum is created. This pulls more ink into the print head from the cartridge. A typical bubble jet print head has 300 or 600 tiny nozzles, and all of them can fire a droplet simultaneously.

b.    Thermal Ink Jet Printing Method

The thermal inkjet printer works by using tiny, electrically heated cartridges of ink. When the ink is heated, a tiny bubble rises to the surface and propels a tiny drop of ink onto printable media such as paper.

c. Piezoelectric Printing Method

This technology uses piezo crystals. A crystal is located at the back of the ink reservoir of each nozzle. The crystal receives a tiny electric charge that causes it to vibrate. When the crystal vibrates inward, it forces a tiny amount of ink out of the nozzle. When it vibrates out, it pulls some more ink into the reservoir to replace the ink sprayed out.

B. Thermal Methods

Thermal Printing method is classified in to two groups based on the use of Ribbon (media) for the printing.

     Thermal Transfer Printing Method (Ribbon is used for printing)

•    Dye Sublimation Printing Method (Ribbon is used for Printing

•    Direct Thermal printing Method (Without Ribbon printing directly)

     Thermal Transfer Printing Method

A thermal printer works from the theory of thermal (heat) transfer. On application of electricity, the elements of the print head get heated and the impact of heat transfers the Ink (Ribbon ink) to the label surface on a print command. The ribbon ink has a very quick drying time so that print image on the label surface appears clear within no time the printing process get over.

     Dye Sublimation Printing Method:

In case of Dye Sublimation printing, the thermal print head gets heated up by application of electricity. The heat energy impact causes the dye in ribbon ink to sublime and the gaseous dye permeates the print media, whether it is photo paper, regular paper, or cloth, and as the atoms lose energy, they come closer together again and return to the liquid and solid states. Only one ribbon is heated at a time, so the process is repeated four times and the finished print job actually has four layers of dye.

      Direct Thermal printing

A direct thermal transfer printer is the older of the two common varieties of thermal printer. On application of electric current, the thermal print head het heated up. In the printing process when the Coated paper (the mixture of Royco dyes and colourants) is pushed through the direct thermal printer head, small dots are marked on the paper which show up as printed matter as an impact of heat. This sort of printer requires no ink, and uses no ribbon

C. Electrographic Printing Method:

In Electro photographic printing method, the required image is written by a beam of light onto a photoconductive drum or band that has a uniform electric charge over its surface. The action of the light beam produces a charge pattern on the photoconductor, which is then developed by applying particles of pigment that are attracted to the image but are repelled by the background. The image is then transferred to paper by pressing the paper against the drum or band and applying an electric field. The toner is fixed to the paper by heat and/or pressure or by passing through a solvent vapor bath.

This type of printer can yield very good print quality, forming its image as a fine matrix of dots. It can thus readily produce graphics and a wide variety of typestyles. This printing method can be distributed into two types:

•    Laser beam Method

•    Electro charge method

      Laser-Beam Method

An electrophotographic printer in which a laser is used as the light source; the laser beam is modulated to produce the image and it is transferred to the media and is fused by a heated roller or by a flash of light.

Lintec Label material classification:

Lintec Label stock have been designed to suit all printing technology described here. The wide range of label stock available both in Paper and film do offer a wider selection criteria for our customers who really look forward for quality with performance.  The perfect combination of label stock and the Print media with the quality product from DNP Japan, retains M&M at an edge over others so far as various AIDC applications and other customized solutions designed and offered by M&M are concerned.
