Simplifying the ordering and fast delivery of wide-format printer spares and ancillary items which don’t require an engineer’s visit, Tech8 has announced an on-line purchasing facility so that user-replaceable parts can be sourced quickly and efficiently. This new resource follows the growing trend for secure web-based shopping and features a comprehensive catalogue of everyday and less common, yet essential, items.
Tech8’s clearly laid-out on-line store is simple to navigate, with a menu displaying the choice of products available. For additional ease of use when defining categories, a search engine is able to locate an item name or code, and all available items are attractively priced with most being available ex-stock.
Typical products include print-heads, manifolds and caps, pinch rollers, refillable ink cartridges, main boards and power units. Along with a comprehensive selection of wide-format ink-jet printer elements, the comprehensive catalogue also includes cleaning and maintenance items, wiper blades and cabling.
Unless they are generic, all of the spare parts specify relevant compatibility with their printer models to avoid a user purchasing the wrong element. Mos t commonly u sed items are dispatched within 24 hours and delivery is available throughout the UK, all of Europe and the rest of the world, with payment options being in sterling, Euros and US dollars.
“Now that wide-format printer users are becoming increasingly knowledgeable about their machines it makes sense to offer them a single source from which to buy most of their everyday spares,” comments Tom Plunkett, technical director of Tech8. “Additionally, these businesses can save time and money by using on-line shopping, with the additional knowledge that the items they are purchasing are of high quality, keenly priced and sourced from responsible manufacturers.”
Purchases are added to a shopping cart, and payment is via secure server which accepts PayPal and most major debit and credit cards. Tech8’s web area for spare parts and their ordering can be reached via its main site at www.tech8.eu which also outlines the comprehensive warranty options available from the company.
