Pad printing machine

Pad Printing Machine

Pad printing (also called tampography) is a printing process that can transfer a 2-D image onto a 3-D object. This is accomplished using an indirect offset (gravure) printing process that involves an image being transferred from the cliché via a silicone pad onto a substrate


Pad printing machine is for printing gravure items . for example: 

·Medical devices (surgical instruments, etc.)

·Implantable & in body medical items (catheter tubes, contact lenses, etc.)

·Golf ball logos/graphics

·Hockey Pucks

·Decorative designs/graphics appearing on Hot Wheels or Matchbox toy cars

·Automotive parts (turn signal indicators, panel controls, etc.)

·Letters on computer keyboards and calculator keys

·TV and computer monitors

·Identification labels and serial numbers for many applications




How to get high quality pad printing machine?


A high quality pad printing machine has many factors decide; then, how to choose? Let’s break details step by step?


Today, in china market, there are too many pad printing machine manufacturers, with different rankings, and always confuse the customer to pick the best suitable pad printing machine for them. Grandfon offer you a fast solution to solve this issue:


Step one:

The pad printing machine inside components is extremely important, it is 70% decide whether this pad printing machine is good or not. The main consist parts are: cylinder, solenoid valve, alloy parts precision and assemble experience


For pad printing machine cylinders, the famous brands are FESTO from Germany, SMC from Japan, Airtac from Taiwan (China), Orega from Parker( U.S), Hings (China), no doubt, if the pad printing machine go for FESTO and SMC, they will be the best. But look out for the copy ones. You might not always get the genuine one. But Grandfon will promise the best genuine one.


With the best cylinder, then, the pad printing machine will be the best? The answer is no.


Here is the deal:

Another important factor is the solenoid valve. Solenoid valve is for sensor the pad printing machine moving parts, tell moving parts when need to start and when need to be stop; it need to be working as regular as cylinder. So it needs to be the best too. In market, solenoid valve SMC, FESTO, airtac, SNS are the mature technology, with them; it can ensure your pad printing machine long lasting.

Right now, if you well consider above, you will able to get high quality pad printing machine easily.

How can you actually use this ? to sum up, here comes the best part?

Cylinder – solenoid valve – CNC machined – factory age .
