Circuit Breakers

Trans Tech has experience applying branding, safety, voltage measurement, indicators, and other decoration on switches and circuit breakers. We can print on two levels (top and bottom of switch) with a single pass – generating significant time savings.

Typical Applications Include:

  • Switches (1 pole, 3, pole, 5 pole)
  • Circuit Breaker Housing, Cases and Connectors
Plugs & Switches

Trans Tech has experience printing safety and function indicators, branding, compliance certifications, serial numbers, model information, and other elements on plugs and switches.  As a global provider- we are familiar with plug variations in each country and we are capable of designing high-speed automation systems to support the decorating speed these applications often require.

Typical Applications Include:

  • Plugs (wide variety of different shapes and sizes unique to each country or region)
  • Switches (of all kinds including indicators, dimmers and more)
