These LED or laser printing, number plate systems are the most flexible of all our solutions. They can use our entire range of our plate media sizes, which adds up to over a hundred different sizes including shaped. By printing onto film they also offer the chance to inject colour into designs, so suppliers can produce plates that carry their brand. And they support our signs software, which means when upgraded they can make vehicle signs, classic and custom number plates along with road legal.

Make Number Plates for Any Vehicle

Thermal Solutions

Thermal printing means we can offer suppliers number plate systems that are a reliable and robust solution to production. Printer limitations mean they only make a single sized plate and only print using black. But this results in very fast print speeds which enable them to be turned into high volume machines. And printing in one colour means they only have a single ribbon, which makes replacing consumables quick and simple.

Operating Conditions

LED printers are precision machines that require certain environmental conditions are met for the best production results. Both printers and blank media will need placing in a location free from excessive dust or grease and kept away from condensation. Place the printer on a flat, static free surface in a room with a temperature between 10 - 30 °C and a maximum relative humidity of 60% when printing onto film. Thermal printers are more robust machines that operate in a wider range of conditions.

Ensuring adequate clearance around the device for it to be fully opened up should provide enough space for ventilation. They typically use 670W when in normal use so a standard 240VAC mains supply should be sufficient. Operating in conditions out side of these ranges will effect print quality and finish. Please check manufacturer documentation for more exact figures or contact our technical department for assistance.
