Thermal Labelling Systems

Thermal Labelling Systems


Lithotech believes in providing a total solution to customers, 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.

Lithotech supplies plain and custom-printed direct thermal and thermal transfer labels in a wide range of sizes with a variety of facestock and adhesive options.

Agri Tags

Lithotech’s Agri Tag produce bag tags are ideal for farmers or manufacturers who send their products to markets or resellers in bags.

These types of products generally have rough handling and are exposed to the elements. Our Agri Tags are manufactured from Flexitag, a smooth flexible plastic material that is durable, weatherproof and very difficult to tear – so there will be no rain-damaged tags or bags without tags.

Printed on an 8-colour press, Agri Tags can be printed on one or both sides and UV varnished for extra protection. Agri Tags can be supplied die-cut to shape, with separation perforations and with a die-cut hole to thread a fastener. Tags can be secured to bags with a fastener or by heat welding.

Tags are supplied on a roll that can be printed with a thermal transfer printer so that the producer can print any variable information in the exact quantity as required.

Agri Tags can be pre-printed on one side, with the back left unprinted for information to be applied via a thermal transfer printer. They can be also be printed on both sides with check boxes on the back.

Applications include:

  • Produce tags
  • Animal feed tags
  • Livestock tags
  • Meat tags
  • Fertiliser tags
  • Sawmill tags
