The E2-TR is a fully automatic, multi-colour Ribbon Printing System. Running at
speeds of up to 7,200 impressions per hour, the E2-TR is commonly used to hot
stamp award ribbons, gift and packaging ribbon, rosette components and many other styles of narrow web textiles and
The E2-TR has a 3" X 10" impression area, a 1" ~ 32" maximum ribbon pull, and a
3" x 3" maximum cutting area.
central CAM mechanism supplies mechanical power to the entire machine. Smooth
and precise, all bearings and parts are purposefully oversized to ensure long
life and durability. The E2-TR generates up to 5 tons of pressure, more than
sufficient power to produce dazzling foil stamped ribbons.
all-electric machine, the E2-TR uses an electric motor as its power source, not
pneumatics like most other hot stamping machines. This means that
with the E2-TR, you don't need a high-end air compressor, plus you eliminate
100% of the many inherent issues of pneumatic equipment. Furthermore, the
E2-TR runs cleanly and quietly, making it suitable for use in a home or office setting.
Foils as thin as 1" feed well, and multiple rolls of different coloured foils
can be fed simultaneously. This means that the E2-TR is able to stamp the
ribbon with multiple colours of foil, in one pass.
ribbons are perceived to have a higher value than conventional, single colour
ribbons. Despite this perception, the truth is that multi-colour prints can be
produced for about the same cost.
Whether converted into higher margins, or
used as a competitive advantage in a tight marketplace, multi-colour printing is
a customer pleasing, profit generating sales tool.
In the middle of every roll of ribbon is a hole or "core".
When mounting the ribbon roll on the machine for printing, a spindle passes
through the core to support the roll. Since many of our clients source
their ribbon from different suppliers, it is common to have several core sizes
and in turn several corresponding spindle sizes.
Common sizes are : 3/8" , 1/2" , 5/8", 1",
Spindles are easily changed by unlocking a single bolt, sliding the
spindle off its' hub, and then replacing it with the correctly sized spindle.
The base version of the E2 runs at 3,600 ribbons per hour. This is a very
comfortable speed for the machine, and you can expect to run flat out on most
applications. The base version is well suited to smaller ribbon companies,
rosette specialists, wedding ribbon suppliers, and mid-volume specialty-gift companies.
The speed upgrade doubles the E2-TR's top speed to 7,200 impressions per hour.
This additional production capacity is well-suited to volume producers of
continuous ribbons as well as award ribbon companies with volumes of medium to
