Pad printing and silk screen printing

Application of marking

We use two methods:

  • Tampon printing

Used pad printing machines WINON 123A.

Pad printing is widely used to mark a variety of plastic, wood, glass or leather items. The most popular is pad printing in the manufacture of branded souvenir products, for example, pad printing on bottles, pens, ashtrays, Christmas tree decorations, and so on.

The main difference of this method from other printing options, in particular, silk-screen printing, is the minimum size of the applied image. The dimensions in this case are limited to 80 by 60 mm, which corresponds to the size of a special tampon or cliche. And in cases of uneven surfaces, for example, on handles, clichés are used even smaller in size to avoid deformation of the image. In particular, the height of the picture to be applied to the pen should not be more than 0.7 mm.

Pad printing can be used on finely textured surfaces such as cork, leather or wood, as well as on smooth impervious materials such as plastic, glass and metal. Modern technologies make it possible to apply very clear images with a line thickness of only 0.3-0.4 mm on a wide variety of textures and shapes. High clarity in pad printing is achieved due to the fact that the paint is applied with a dense tampon made of vulcanized rubber, which is very tightly pressed to the surface.

  • Silkscreen

The silk-screen (screen printing) method is used:

A machine for applying special paint to a surface by forcing it with a squeegee through a mesh stencil, on which the required pattern is formed by mesh cells open for pressing. The method provides high productivity and is economical in mass production conditions. Image reproduction accuracy ± 0.1 mm.

The automatic KENT SP 400 machine allows to obtain multicolor printing with complex registration on the format up to A3. The productivity of the machine is ~ 1000 runs / hour. The thickness of the ink layer on the print is determined by the thickness of the printing plate and can reach several tens of microns (in classical types of printing - up to 5 - 7 microns).

  • Netcography

The grid printing method allows you to apply images to products (with the ability to use in aggressive environments) made of metal, plastic, fabric, paper, glass:

  • multicolored images on devices and devices;
  • manufacturing of front panels of devices (combined with a keyboard and indication;
  • multicolor images on packaging (from paper to polyethylene);
  • production of representative products (folders, souvenirs);
  • production of nameplates, plates, indexes, product marking (from one-color to self-luminous);
  • production of stickers for various purposes.
