Pad printing, the solution for printing on irregular surfaces
Pad printing is probably the most versatile of all printing processes due to its unique ability to print on three-dimensional objects and compound angles.

The pad printing process is based on 5 main components:

Pad : Pads are used to lift ink from the cliché and transfer it to a product.

Cliché : Cliché´s are steel or plastic plates with an etched print image.

Ink : Inks are based on 1 or 2 component ink, depending on their printing application.

Doctoring / Ink cup : Doctoring floods the cliché with ink, then scrapes the surface, leaving only ink in the etched area.

Printing machine : Our printing machines bring all of the above together, with easy to use control panels. Some machines are equipped with multiple pads for multicolor printing.
