Hot Foil Printers

Hot foil printing is an effective way of over printing changeable information such as barcodes, batch numbers and use by dates.  Our range of hpdSYSTEM machines allow you to print in various orientations and as the print dries instantly you don’t need to allow for drying time.  We offer three models of hot foil printer; hpdSYSTEM vario, hpdSYSTEM nano, hpdSYSTEM mango. The vario is a user-friendly yet feature rich unit that has been designed for individual product coding.  If space is limited then the nano miniature unit is an excellent choice and is easily integrated with your existing packaging and labelling equipment. The mango has been designed for printing on large print areas.  

Thermal Transfer

Thermal printing is fantastic for high quality, variable data printing offering a print resolution of 300dpi.  Thermal printing technology works by energizing and subsequently heating elements within the print head. It’s this action that diffuses the colour pigments from the ribbon and enables transference to the print material. We offer a choice of three different models of thermal transfer printers to suit the majority of applications.  The ttPRINT inline offers a choice of print widths, as does the ttPRINT multiline, which also allows for varying print lengths giving a print area of up to 128 x 630mm.  The ttPRINT xs is a compact unit with a print area of 53 x 40mm.

betaJET verso Thermal Inkjet Printer

The betaJET verso thermal inkjet printer is a zero-maintenance option for high-speed printing on both porous and non-porous surfaces. It offers fast, consistent printing with excellent code quality. As with the alphaJET continuous inkjet range, the betaJET verso thermal inkjet has an easy to use touchscreen interface and is built to withstand demanding production environments. Please visit our website for more details.

Laser Systems

If you are mindful of lessening your company’s impact on the environment then the non requirement of consumables makes laser systems extremely appealing and has the subsequent advantage of being a cost-effective solution.  PrintSafe are pleased to offer five different laser systems from the iCON LaserSYSTEM that is designed for small character coding and the K-100 CO2 LaserSYSTEM, which provides consistently high markings, to the F-9000 Fibre-LaserSYSTEM and D-5000 Nd-YAG-LaserSYSTEM, which both print directly to metal or plastic materials.  For full details of each model please see our website.

Refurbished & Hire Equipment

If you require an offline coding system that will allow you to accommodate seasonal or one-off fluctuations in capacity then speak to PrintSafe.  Our equipment hire service means you don’t have to invest in costly equipment but can still meet the demands of increased throughput when needed.  Our short-term rentals are also a great way to realise potential cost savings before committing to purchase our systems outright.  You can hire date coding and labelling systems with a choice of hot foil, ink jet or tt printers.  

After Sales - Inks, Foils, Ribbons & Replacement Parts
