Having long been a trusted partner in the rubber belt and hose market, Computype has expanded its product portfolio yet again to help its global customer base achieve efficiencies when marking rubber, whilst maintaining high quality and speed.
The latest product development is that of the TransMark Pro 100, an enhanced thermal transfer print station that enables high quality color printing of films for the later identification of rubber products. Several unique features stand out to make the TransMark Pro 100 an appealing solution to the niche market that manufactures rubber/belt products. Innovations include the option to print in a variety of colors, and the advanced ribbon tension control which ensures barcodes, numbers, and logos are printed clearly and consistently from batch start to end. Meanwhile, thermal transfer print technology offers high speed, durable print output that holds up to harsh environments, and already has a proven adoption rate in the rubber industry.
Led by Computype’s internal Automated Engineering Solutions team, the inspiration to innovate came from its strong and loyal customer base. “We’re deeply embedded with our customers” said Simon Boddy, Global Product Manager for Computype’s Tire and Rubber Division “and are very much in tune with day to day intricacies that would help get their work done better, smarter, and faster. The advancements in the TransMark Pro 100 offer exactly that: flexibility, simplicity, and consistency. Plus, it’s always rewarding when customer feedback is implemented into the next generation of technology; that’s’ how we know we’re doing our jobs right.”
A constant innovator and thought leader in the global rubber marketplace, Computype announced earlier this year that Mike Sanislo was named Vice President of RFID Systems. Mike is currently dedicated to discovering how dynamic data management can increase value and streamline operations for tire and rubber customers. Computype has been at the forefront of product identification and labeling systems for over 40 years.
