Thermal transfer overprinting


Domino’s Vx-Series range of Thermal Transfer Overprint (TTO) coders can print variable data, bar codes and images at 300 dpi quality onto flexible packaging films and labels for a wide range of manufacturing and packaging applications in the food, pharmaceutical and industrial sectors. 

Vx-Series Models

The V-Series range comprises 2 models (Vx50i, Vx150i) to suit your specific coding needs. Added value has been delivered through i-Tech, Domino's Intelligent Technology.

V-Series offers you reduced Total cost of ownership (TCO) though reduced downtime, reduced consumable use, as well as impoved operational simplicity and coding capability.

These benefits ensure V-Series is the perfect choice whether you are a manufacturer or packaging machinery OEM.


Specific benefits to OEMs include:

  • Customised integration design services providing bespoke brackets and electronic systems integration,
  • Advanced product features simplifying installation and set up of each printer (Compact size, no compressed air, automatic printhead alignment, printer / packaging machine GUI integration),
  • Simple fit and forget - management of all printer support needs from a global network,
  • Dedicated product and integration training,
  • Ongoing commercial support,
  • Customer trials and demonstrations,
  • Exhibitions, open days, marketing support.

How it works?

Printing is achieved by placing a thermal ribbon between a heated printhead and the substrate to be marked. With the three items in contact, the printhead is moved over the length of both the ribbon and the substrate. Heat from the printhead is passed through the ribbon, causing ink to melt and be released from its underside. The ink adheres to the substrate and then cools rapidly, resulting in a permanent print.

Thermal transfer overprinters can operate in two modes depending upon how the printhead is moved relative to the ribbon and substrate. These are intermittent and continuous modes.

All Domino's printers are capable of printing in both modes:

Continuous mode
In continuous mode the substrate is moved continuously. The printhead is stationary and prints while the substrate is moving.

Intermittent mode
In this printing mode the substrate is moved intermittently. The printhead is moved over the substrate by the printer while the substrate is stationary.

Key benefits

Domino Thermal Transfer (TTO) printers can print variable text (in any, easy to read, true type font), graphics, bar codes and 2 D codes on packaging films, foils and labels to enable pack specific identification and decoration. They offer a wide range of additional benefits:

  • Lowest Total Cost of Ownership - through i-Tech features offering reduced ribbon consumption and minimised downtime,
  • Simple, error free operation - through QuickStep, our industry leading User interface,
  • Simple integration - allows quick and efficient installation or replacement of existing TTO coders,
  • Versatile Performance - allows a perfect match your application.
