Labeling Glossary: Spool

To load a thermal transfer printer, you must place the supply cores onto spools, which then fit into the various printer assemblies. The vinyl tape fits loosely onto a stationary spool, usually a rounded plastic bar. Ribbon is loaded onto spring-loaded spools, for a tight fit. Ribbon spools have a notched flange, which links into a motor-driven precision assembly. Spools are generally made from high-impact pastics.
