PSI Ribbon PP806 S / RC97

  • Fabric  color  black
  • Print performance  30 million characters.
  • Article Ref:  8709 002 39701

The cartridge tape PSi S / RC97 is a printer accessory for the PP 40x family of printers. This is subject to continuous quality control in the different stages of production (plastic injection, ink production, fabric impregnation and assembly of all cassette components), as well as our own quality assurance.

Therefore, the PSi printer and the S / RC98 cartridge ribbon combine very well with each other in terms of mechanical properties. The belt unit, as well as the corresponding braking and pulling forces of the belt together with the ribbon guide in front of the print head, guarantee the full function of the printer and, therefore, its useful life.

The color for the impregnation of the fabric corresponds to a particular mixture, which satisfies the requirements of document integrity, fertility and quality of writing, on the one hand, as well as lubricity, low degree of contamination and low wear of the print head. Therefore, PSi controls these specific properties in a continuous series of tests and guarantees them for the end user.

The colors of suppliers or third party fillings represent, therefore, an unpredictable risk to the function of our printers, which can lead to an increase in repair costs.
