The TransMark on-demand solution from Computype provides a far more ‘production-friendly’ modern print solution for rubber product manufacturers. It’s the result of many years partnering with organisations in the tyre and rubber sector – a fast, flexible, and multi—colour thermal transfer print option that’s engineered to fit with industry processes and automated systems.
The unique TransMark system allows straightforward colour printing on rubber – making strong branding a reality on everything from belts to hoses. Colours and designs can be easily changed, applying real-time information is flexible and simple. As a result, overhead, labour costs and inventory are reduced.
TransMark’s thermal transfer technology enables variable on-demand printing – information, designs, and colours are easily changeable. The technology is based on a simple ribbon and media kit, so you only print what you need, when you need it. There’s no requirement for storing stocks of pre-printed films, no waste when designs change, and no hazardous chemicals to manage.

Computype has been working with the tyre and rubber industry for over 40 years worldwide. We understand the processes you employ and challenges you face. This combined with our innovative mindset and collaborative approach enable us to produce effective solutions like TransMark.
Rubber is a challenging material to print on – a conventional method such as screen printing is time and labour intensive, and comes with health and safety issues due to the hazardous chemicals the process requires.
Working closely with partners in belt and rubber manufacturing, Computype has created TransMark. Colour printing for rubber products, designed and developed to meet the specific challenges and demands of the industry.
With TransMark you can now meet the call for quality brand reproduction on rubber, in a variety of colours with no compromise on readability.

Now you can apply and change real-time product information to your belts quickly and easily, allowing your production to be more efficient and agile.
On-demand thermal transfer printing also eradicates the need for solvents and hazardous clean-up operations associated with screen print.

Manufacturers of engine timing belts, conveyor belts, ATV belts, fan belts, and airsprings are all discovering the advantages of TransMark print-on-demand.
Cut costs, gain agility
With TransMark there’s no need to buy and store large quantities of pre-printed film, so you reduce overheads and free-up storage space. There’s also no waste when designs change.
