Heat Transfer Labeling Equipment/Machines

Tronics’ fastest growing technology is by far the industry leading innovations found in our heat transfer decorating/labeling equipment. Heat transfer decorating combines the convenience of pressure sensitive labeling by changing over using a roll of labels with the high gloss, photo quality, and durable finish of offset printing.

The Benefits – Cost Savings without Product Packaging Compromise

Tronics has experience with tying these labeling systems in with other equipment upstream to form integrated turnkey systems, even in-line with injection molding equipment. Integration with injection molding machinery is a huge benefit eliminating the additional costs of having to use multiple people to decorate, handling product multiple times from the molder, to warehouse, to offset printer, and not having load and unload the offset printer with multiple people. Finally, another benefit is that there is not any clean up involved when using rolls of heat transfer labels.

Heat Transfer Label Systems for A Changing Market

With the explosion in warehouse shopping such as SAMS Club, Home Depot, Lowes, etc... the average consumer is buying more bulk product than ever before which means that competition on the store shelf no longer applies to smaller retail container packaging only. Tronics’ heat transfer decorating (HTD) technology has helped give our customers that offer products in large containers a competitive edge with a fantastic looking product package.
