RIBBON TYPES & APPLICATIONS FOR THE AEROSPACE INDUSTRY
Printing resistant to hostile environments
Whether during production or use, mechanical parts are subjected to very high and extremely varied constraints: grease/oil, heat, abrasion, vibration, solvents, humidity, exterior conditions such as UV exposure etc.
Printed matter is subjected to various forms of attack capable of causing damage to the point of being unable to read the part’s identification and traceability information. An erased barcode can cause complications throughout the product life cycle: manufacture, servicing, warranty and recycling.
Supplyline either directly or through our partners supply a number of OEM, Tier I / Tier II & Tier III suppliers and manufacturers.
These include companies like Boeing and Airbus and also Tier II and Tier III suppliers like Bombardier among others.
We supply many more companies like these in this industry but due to the sensitive nature of these companies and our relationship with them we would only discuss these companies directly with serious end user enquiries which we would welcome. If you want to find out why so many Aerospace companies trust and deal with Supplyline ID please get in touch.
Inkanto ribbons for marking mechanical parts
Thermal Transfer print technology makes no compromises: capable of marking individual parts, of printing all types of barcodes (vertical, horizontal, 2D, datamatrix, etc) as well as logos and texts, and finally of offering an ink with the required resistance level for the part’s particular environment of use.
The AXR® range of Thermal Transfer ribbons from inkanto is the best solution for the demands of high print durability. The Resin-based ink AXR®7+ offers printing of very high durability and excellent legibility, even for small characters and barcodes. It is compatible with all types of coated paper and synthetic print media.
Where a higher level of resistance is required, notably to solvents, the AXR®8 and AXR®9 resin-based products are the alternatives recommended for synthetic labels.
Printing resistant to solvents and abrasion
- Enable parts traceability throughout their life cycle.
Aerospace & Transportation from ITW
Automotive, trucks, buses, airplanes, motorcycles, and recreational vehicles all use hundreds of thermal transfer ribbon/label combinations for just-in-time manufacturing, tracking and identification of each new vehicle. Applications for thermal transfer ribbons in the transportation market include: component labels, emission labels, parts tracking, certification labels, warranty labels, serial number plate labels, recall information, agency UL or CSA labels, aftermarket replacement parts and much more. Each application requires a specific ribbon/label combination that is durable enough to last the life of the vehicle and withstand a number of extreme conditions that it will be exposed to including: salt spray, brake fluid, battery acid, grease, high temperatures while also meeting a number of OEM label requirements.
