Pad printing machine stands out – future integration of screen printing technology into the trend

Pad printing machine was introduced to China in the 1980s, and has developed rapidly in recent years due to its ability to print on small areas, concave and convex surfaces, which has very obvious advantages, thus making up for the shortcomings of screen printing. Pad printing machine is a kind of printing equipment, suitable for plastic, toys, glass, metal, ceramics, electronics, IC seal and so on. Pad printing is an indirect concave adhesive head printing technology, has become a major method of printing and decorating the surface of various objects.

With the further opening of China’s market, a large number of foreign-funded enterprises mainly in the traditional industries of electronics, plastics, gifts, toys, etc. have entered China one after another, and the decorative methods mainly based on pad printing and screen printing technology have been developed extraordinarily. According to incomplete statistics, pad printing and screen printing technology in the above industries have reached 27%, 64%, 51% and 66% respectively. Nowadays, there are more and more manufacturers who use pad printing machines to print commodity descriptions, trademarks and other drawings. So, why exactly they are willing to choose pad printing machine, and pad printing machine competitiveness and where?

In fact, pad printing machine does have many similar printing equipment does not have the advantage.

First of all, a pad printing machine can do up to 12 sets of colors called multicolor overprinting, you can print 12 colors by only one machine, so that both improve the efficiency and save money, even if it is just built small manufacturers can afford this part of the cost, compared to similar products screen printing machine multicolor overprinting appears to be a high price.

Secondly, compared to the characteristics of screen printing machine, pad printing machine ink layer is very thin, which means that it is easy to leave traces on the surface of any product, whether it is flat, curved or wavy, can be a perfect replica of the printed pattern, but the screen printing machine in this regard appears to be very complicated, flat screen printing machine can only print flat, if you want to print curved and wavy surfaces will have to apply the other curved surface screen printing machine.

In addition, pad printing machine has a very good color performance and printing adaptability, although the screen printing technology printed graphics three-dimensional sense of strong, with the hand can feel the unevenness of the real sense, but if you want to compare the types of products printed, pad printing machine can definitely be called universal, whether it’s plastic or metal, whether it’s sporting goods or glass products, for the pad printing machine is a piece of cake. It is this high-performance pad printing machine, low price point is fully adapted to this highly developed material society, has become the first choice of contemporary manufacturers.

At present, the pad printing process of the pad printing machine is also constantly upgraded and improved. Ink is crucial for pad printing technology. Nowadays, the emergence of closed ink can be regarded as a new development in pad printing machine and pad printing technology. It is energy-efficient and environmentally friendly, as it saves on the amount of ink, while at the same time workers enjoy a more hygienic and comfortable environment. It also saves time and labor, due to the long-term stable viscosity of the ink, making it free from the trouble of cleaning cartridges and squeegees after printing. The use of closed ink is more than suitable for mass production operations. It integrates more factors in the use of staff, making further improvements in productivity and quality.

The pad printing process is also moving into newer areas. In order to be more efficiently put into production, pad printing technology is gradually being completed with inline production, which organically combines the pad printing machine with the entire production and operation to form a complete and unified link. At present pad printing technology is gradually moving towards the automation of printing, high-precision systems not only through the quality of printing that is accurate, but also to adapt to the needs of mass production. In addition, pad printing technology is gradually forming an integrated part of the production environment, product consumption and maintenance.

The combination of pad printing machine technology and screen printing technology together open up new horizons in the printing market. From the traditional labor-intensive, gradually to technology-intensive, which is adapted to the world development of a trend.
