Wide format printers are expensive and difficult to repair and service. It is very easy for an inexperienced engineer to accidentally break a plotter or order up an incorrect part.
Our printer engineers have been repairing wide format plotter printers since the mid-1990s. Our plotter printer engineers are trained to repair both plotter and wide format printers manufactured by the major brands including H-P, Epson, Canon and Ricoh.
If you have a problem then speak to us and we will listen and then we will quote you. We give fixed prices so you know exactly what you will pay before the engineer arrives – there will be no nasty surprised when you get the bill.
Same day and next business day callouts are available on request.

Are you sure that you’re ordering the right belt? If unsure then we can make sure you get the right one and also fit it for your correctly.
Poor Print Quality
Like all inkjet printers the ink delivery systems or the printhead can fail. Problems like this can be expensive to repair so it may be worth upgrading. Speak to us about the best option for your business.
If your printer is displaying a strange unknown error message then let us know and we can identify it – we have access to all the manuals.
If your printer is making a strange clunking or grinding noise then it could be indicative of a serious problem. Give us a call and we can investigate it for you.
This is one of the most frustrating problems out there – you send a print job to the printer but nothing comes out. Our engineers can generally solve problems like this in one visit unless there is a physical problem with the network port.
Plotters will benefit from regular service and maintenance visits. Contact us to prevent some of these common problems for ever occurring.
Why Organisations Choose to Use PPL Plotter Engineers?
Our engineers have on average over 15 years experience of fixing wide format printers and plotters. Our customers know that they are getting plotter engineers who know what to look for, how to fix it and above all are helpful. They will take the time to explain to you what went wrong and how it was repaired or what needs to happen next. Before leaving they will service the machine and clean it and point out anything that is likely to cause it to fail in the near future.
If a part is needed then they will report it to our helpdesk and you will be contacted with a cost for the part.
All of our engineers have had manufacturing training and we get pricing support from them so that if you do need a part then you know that not only are you going to be getting the right parts but also that you will also be getting them at the very best price.
