How does pad printing work?

This curved surface printing technique involves an indirect imprint (silicone pad). The process of pad printing applies a printing technique in which a two-dimensional image is transferred to a three-dimensional - 3D object. This procedure is done through the printing forms, commonly engraving plates. This curved surface printing technology is done with the help of silicone pads that are applied to the printing surface. Initially, the color is applied by roller to the printing form, then the excess is taken off with the knife, to get the paint, which is located in the recesses, taken by silicone pad and apply to the surface intended for printing.

Thanks to physical and chemical changes of the printing form it's possible to make a printed image that silicone pad presses onto. When the pad subsequently lowered onto the printing object the same image is left on the surface for printing. With the help of special properties such as flexibility and adaptability to the surface, the image can be transferred to a variety of surfaces and shapes and so printing on round, circular or cylindrical objects is possible.

Pad Printing Ink

Even though the pad printer itself is the greatest item of equipment, the tiniest consumable: ink, is the most crucial. Every ink is special in composition thus shifting its adhesion to substrates.

It's thus very important to pick the suitable ink lubricant for your unique needs.
