Pad printing consumables
Pad printing technology Pad printing is an indirect printing process that can transfer an image from a printing plate coated with ink that is moved by a silicone transfer pad to a three-dimensional substrate. A printing plate is a metal gravure designed and fabricated so that the transfer pad takes just the right amount of ink from it. It requires a careful selection of hardness and shape of the silicone transfer pad, a.k.a. the printing pad. Pad printing allows transferring images to substrates that are cylindrical, tapered, globular or irregular in form (e.g. the corners of trim strips). If you want to know more about pad printing, ask about a training session Keller can deliver at its headquarters. By providing a cycle of essential training modules, we support our recurring and prospective customers.
