The variation in tension between ‘start’ and ‘end’ of the
ribbon is related to the size of the rolls.
What is it…?

Active ribbon tension control
System
Large unused ribbon
Small used
ribbon roll
How does it work…?
 By keeping even tension on ribbon at all
times from start to end of the ribbon
Large used roll
Benefits
 Less ribbon wrinkle
 Simpler to change ribbons
 No setup or adjustment required
 Less user training
 Lower operational costs
ARCP automatically balances this tension to give better
print quality and no ribbon wrinkle
