Squid Ink Manufacturing, Inc., Brooklyn Park, Minn., introduced the new SQ-TTO Series of thermal transfer overprinters, which offer consistent, high-resolution print quality for the food and beverage industry.

The TTO printers use thermal printheads paired with thermal transfer ribbon to apply a consistent and reliable mark on products. The SQ-32 and SQ-53 models offer high-speed printing of incredible looking variable text, serial numbers, barcodes and graphics at 300 DPI. The TTO machines also feature arm ribbon control to prevent ribbon breakage, and a 600-meter-length ribbon provides long run times between ribbon changes.

An easy-to-use 7-inch full color touchscreen controller provides a quick and easy way to program, edit and recall messages right at the production line. Multiple messages can be stored on a USB drive and transferred from coder to coder for quick message changes. Plus, these printers can easily mount to intermittent or continuous vertical or horizontal form/fill/seal machines, pouch filling machines or tray-sealing machines.
