A pad printing ink box is designed to feed ink to a printing plate. It moves periodically over the engraved surface of the printing plate. The ink box part which touches the printing plate is an ink box ring the edges of which rake up excess ink from the etching. Hence, the volume of ink transferred to the silicone transfer pad depends on the etching depth of the printing plate. Keller can provide all possible types of pad printing ink boxes. All ink boxes are built on custom order, per specific customer’s project parameters.
