Indent Printing Technology

Taymer’s indent printing technology is ideal for producing permanent marking on cold cable jackets. A typical location for these printers is after the water trough or in a separate rewinding line. Indent printers are very similar to hot foil printers, except indent printers do not use colored tape. Some models can print on top and bottom of the cable as well as metric and footage.

Taymer's Advantages

How it works:

  • To print on cables, the operator sets up the print drum with print inserts and a print head.
  • The print drum will heat up according to a set temperature.
  • As the cable is passing through the printing area, the print drum (with print head and inserts) are rotating at a relative speed.
  • At the point of contact between the print drum and the cable, the hardened steel characters presses into the jacket of the cable.
  • The heat and pressure exerted on the drum provide a lasting print on the cable.
  • As for the print head, it will advance automatically to the next number.
