What is 2-Side Thermal Technology?

2-Side-Thermal (2ST™) Technology is direct thermal printing technology that utilises dual thermal printheads within a single printer to print effective variable information simultaneously on both sides of specially treated thermal paper rolls and labels.

Our Adapt2ST range provides exceptional print results when printed on the Toshiba Tec DB-EA4D 2ST™ printer. The DB-EA4D comes with free software that is compatible with most systems. 2ST™ printing technology is ideal for applications which require dual output and is an efficient alternative to single sided solutions.

2ST™ materials must only be purchased from an NCR 2ST™ licensed manufacturer.
