The Allen MLi-TE is a multiple head thermal transfer print system that utilizes a unified, configurable design that only requires one controller and one consumable for up to 12-lanes of print. Unique, serialized print messages consisting of expiration date, lot, serialized batch and QR codes can be utilized across each individual lane of print. The 12-head system is capable of printing up to 800 messages per minute, allowing for maximum throughput.
The Allen MLi-TE is a more economical and user-friendly alternative to traversing CIJ and TTO machines, pairing seamlessly with form-fill-seal stick pack and sachet machines.


  • Prints up to 800 messages per minute (12-head system) by utilizing multiple thermal printheads and a high speed shuttling carriage
  • Single modular streamlined design with minimal cabling allows for easy integration with other machines
  • Simple, centralized message creation for individual and batch messages across all lanes of print
  • Clean and efficient single consumable for the entire system reduces downtime and complexity
  • Multiple standard configurations allow you to scale the system to the unique application requirements
  • Prints high quality barcodes, text and graphics on porous and non-porous surfaces
  • Print areas up to 2.20” (56 mm) wide and 1.5” (40 mm) or 3.5” (90mm) in length
