Pneumatic Express

Flexibility Meets Industry Leading Reliability

The flexibility that has always made pneumatic printers an attractive option is now available in a system that is more user-friendly and efficient than ever.

 Patented, innovative new features allow the Pneumatic Express to combine industry-leading durability and reliability with unprecedented time and cost savings.

The best features from leading North American (Trans Tech) and German (Morlock) pad printers have been brought together to elevate pad printing to the next level.
