Clean Start® : A Game Changer for Thermal Transfer Printers?


In the fast-paced world of manufacturing, the demand for efficient and reliable printing solutions has never been higher. In response to these needs, ARMOR-IIMAK, a global leader in thermal transfer printer ribbons, has enriched their offer with an innovative solution — Clean Start — that NOW comes with all inkanto ribbons.


Making Clean Start available on a worldwide basis puts a bigger focus on the importance of cleaning the printhead. It is a specifically designed and patented material attached between the leader tape and the inked film. This will help remove debris and residues before starting the next print batch.


Optimized Printer Performance

One of the major advantages of Clean Start is its ability to maintain the performance of thermal transfer printers. Over time, residue from regular printing can build up on the printhead, causing degradation in print quality and eventually leading to hardware failure.

Clean Start is designed to combat this problem by providing an efficient and easy-to-use cleaning system that keeps your printhead in top condition. Since every inkanto ribbon now comes with Clean Start, every time a new ribbon is installed, automatic cleaning of the printhead is done.


This simple, yet effective, approach helps maintain the printer’s optimal performance, reducing downtime and increasing productivity.


Extended Printhead Life

Regular cleaning of your printer’s printhead not only ensures high-quality prints but also extends the life of your hardware. The printhead being the most expensive part of the printer, preventive and regular cleaning will expand the printhead’s lifetime and reduce costs. A clean printhead experiences less wear and tear, reducing the frequency of costly printhead replacements.


Ease of Use with Inkanto thermal transfer printer ribbons

In addition to its performance-enhancing benefits, Clean Star is also designed with end-user convenience in mind. Since the cleaning mechanism is integrated into the inkanto ribbon, the cleaning process is automatic and requires no additional effort from the user. This feature eliminates the need for separate cleaning routines and makes the maintenance of thermal printers as hassle-free as possible.


Overall, the integration of Clean Start with inkanto ribbons presents a multitude of benefits for businesses of all sizes. It not only improves printer performance and extends hardware life, but also simplifies maintenance routines and reduces additional costs. All these factors contribute to improved operational efficiency, which is a key determinant of success in today’s competitive business landscape.
