Thermal Labelling Systems

Thermal Labelling Systems


Lithotech believes in providing a total solution to clients, which is why aside from supplying labels, we also supply systems that allow you to print your own labels according to your business needs.

Direct thermal printers image directly onto the paper, while thermal transfer printers use a temperature-sensitive ink ribbon that transfers ink to paper or synthetic label material when heated. Thermal and thermal transfer systems are perfect for labels that are required to be computer-printed with variable information (eg, barcodes) on-site.

Thermal Labelling Systems


Lithotech supplies both direct thermal and thermal transfer labels that can be used in virtually any industry, for numerous applications:

  • Manufacturing (box labels, instruction labels, quality control labels)
  • Retail (scale labels, shelf-edge labels, promotional labels, security labels, jewellery labels)
  • Shipping (port of destination labels, tracking labels, shipping and receiving labels)
  • Warehousing (picking labels, stock-take labels, purchase order and inventory labels)
