Pad Printers: GTO Semi Automatic Range
Choice, flexibility, design excellence
Pad printers are wonderfully versatile and can be used to decorate or mark a wide range of products. Items as diverse as industrial components, promotional give-aways such as golf balls, clock and watch faces, electronic components, and the decorative heels of ladies shoes are all printed using this versatile technique.
The reason why pad printing is so adaptable, is that the process is not constrained to flat surfaces or specific substrates – you can literally pad print onto almost anything.
A pad printer utilises a soft silicone pad to transfer an image onto a product. This soft pad adapts to the product that is being printed to ensure a perfect print is obtained every time.
The biggest benefit of the GTO range of semi automatic pad printing systems is the availability of models with print areas much larger than traditional pad printers. This allows manufacturers to utilise this convenient print method in lieu of screen printing in many instances.
The models to look out for if your print area is quite big, are the the “slider” versions.
Single Colour Systems
Table top or freestanding, each model uses a closed cup inking system, some of which have been designed to slide from left to right to allow large image areas to be printed. Small format rotary tables can also be supplied to increase production volumes and speed.
Two Colour Systems
Two colour pad printers are either bench mounted or freestanding. Two types of closed cup systems are also offered and in-line indexing shuttles or moveable transfer pads allow for flexibility in printing larger products or multiple colours.
Four & Five Colour Systems
These machines are designed for high production, multi colour printing and incorporate advanced in-line shuttles, transfer carre conveyors, front to back inking systems and advanced electronic functionality.
Plate Making Systems
We offer a water washable pad printing polymer plate that can be used on open or closed cup inking systems. In addition, a range of advanced vacuum bed UV units allow the production of plates quickly, easily and cost effectively.
Pad printing consumables and plate making systems?
In addition to the machine, and as an optional extra, everything that is needed to begin printing after delivery of the system can be included with a taylor made consumables supply package – all you need to provide are the items that need printing and some time to learn how to use the machine. A true turn-key solution for any business with after sales support that is second to none!
Do you need an exposure unit to produce polymer pad printing plates? Dalesway can supply a range of exposure units that are perfect for use with the GTO range of semi automatic pad printing systems.
