Thermal Transfer Ribbon Production 18 years

Techspan Converting Thermal Transfer Ribbon for 18 years –  

Techspan Industrial Printing Systems Limited is part of the Techspan Group of companies and we will be celebrating 40 years of trading in January 2019. We are proud to be 100% New Zealand owned and operated and are currently the only converter of Stamping Foil and Thermal Transfer Ribbon that is able to make this claim.

Techspan employs 14 full time staff with warehouses in Auckland, Sydney and Brisbane. We have a reputation as a supplier of quality products and services, we have built our company on this philosophy and believe this is a major contributor to our longevity.

Techspan Trading NZ Limited’s focus is on Engel injection moulding machines and ancillaries, plastic welding equipment and ultrasonic cleaning systems, which are all European products of the highest quality.

The 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 we are a major converter of thermal transfer ribbon in New Zealand, supplying ribbon from Ricoh Japan, NCR USA, 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, Link).

We stock over 50 coloured ribbons for flat head printers in wax resin and resin grades, including metallic gold, silver, red and blue colours. We have the ability to slit ribbon to any width and length and on cardboard or plastic cores to accommodate any printer type.

Our range includes ribbons for desk topindustrial label printers , mobile 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 web site recently launched by Techspan as their New Zealand representatives.

TSC have been manufacturing label printers since 1991 and have supplied over 4 million printers into the market and are one of the Top 5 label printer manufactures worldwide with a market share over 33% in the USA and Asia and 40% in India.

All newly released printers are available on the web site 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, auto sensing printheads so you can change your printer from 200 to 300 or 600 dpi with the change of the printhead, also super economical. The MX-240pro series which is an extra heavy-duty printer is capable of print speeds up to 452mm per second.

Printheads for all printer types and a range of blank label stock is 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 a wide range for the embellishment of many products with wine labels being one of the most well-known. Foils are available in metallic, holographic, pigment and security. A new catalogue is now available on request.

Over the past 18 years Techspan has supplied many 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. 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.
