Technical Information

Technical InformationThe barcode input system is indispensable for the management of physical distribution and production. General has developed high quality thermal transfer ribbons with their own technology, using an integrated management system that covers every process. These ribbons have made it possible to print on various materials, including synthetic paper, PET film and nylon taffeta etc. In addition, these ribbons are characterized by resistance to heat, abrasion, solvents etc, and therefore meet a wide range of demands. Furthermore, General fully supports original systems that have been developed to suit individual applications. General products are used in a wide range of industries, including not only manufacturing and retail, but also information-related enterprises.
