Techspan’s industrial printings systems division handles thermal transfer ribbon, hot and cold stamping foils and TSC label printers. The company has been converting thermal transfer ribbon and coding foil since 1999, when an SME Quadro 400 high speed slitting machine was installed. Now the company is a major converter of thermal transfer ribbon in New Zealand, supplying ribbon from Ricoh Japan, NCR USA and Iimak USA, as well as suppliers in Germany, France and Taiwan. Black ribbon is supplied in all grades: wax, wax resin and resin for flat head printers (Zebra, Datamax, Meto, Sato, TSC and Intermec… to name a few) and near edge printers (Toshiba, Avery, Markem-Imaje, Easyprint, Domino and Link). Techspan stocks more than 50 coloured ribbons for flat head printers in wax resin and resin grades, including metallic gold, silver, red and blue colours. It has the ability to slit ribbon to any width and length, and on cardboard or plastic cores to accommodate any printer type. The range includes ribbons for desk top and industrial label printers, as well as ribbon for thermal transfer over printers (TTO). The full range of TSC label printers is now available on a dedicated e-commerce website recently launched by Techspan as its New Zealand representatives. TSC has been manufacturing label printers since 1991; has supplied more than four million printers into the market; and is one of the top five label printer manufacturers worldwide, with a market share of more than a third in the USA and Asia, and 40% in India. All newly released printers are available on the website, such as the TE-200 series desk-top printers which are not only very economical but come with some impressive specifications. The MH-240 series (an industrial label printer, set to replace the TTP-2410 series) again boasts high specifications including a user-friendly, full-colour touch screen, high print speed, and auto-sensing printheads so you can change your printer from 200 to 300 or 600 dpi with the change of the printhead… making it super economical. The MX-240pro series, which is an extra heavy-duty printer, is capable of print speeds up to 452mm per second, and printheads for all printer types and a range of blank label stock are also available. With a strong focus on being a reliable foil supplier, Techspan carries an extensive range of hot and cold stamping foils suitable for embellishing a wide range of products - with wine labels being one of the most wellknown. Foils are available in metallic, holographic, pigment and security. A new catalogue is now available on request. “Over the past 18 years, we have supplied hundreds of printers and thermal ribbons to companies in New Zealand and Australia. These customers have received reliable supply and service at competitive prices and we thank them for their custom and loyalty,” the company says. “There are good savings to be made in label consumables and, as a converter, Techspan is very confident we can save you even more money, possibly a substantial amount.” Contact Craig, Warren or Jon at Techspan for further information.
