Pad Print

Pad Printing is a versatile printing technique commonly used for transferring 2D images onto 3D surfaces. In this process, a silicone pad picks up ink from an etched plate and transfers it onto the target object.

The precision and flexibility of Pad Printing make it suitable for intricate designs and small-scale production.

Steps for Pad Printing:
  1. Design Preparation: Customers provide the desired design, typically a digital vector graphic file, to ensure clarity and precision.
  2. Plate Preparation: Using chemical etching or laser engraving, transfer the design onto a flat plate. The plate is a flat surface where the pattern is etched.
  3. Ink Preparation: Select ink suitable for the printing material and design, ensuring accurate colors.
  4. Ink Transfer: Apply ink to the plate and use a silicone pad to transfer the ink from the plate to the target object.
  5. Positioning and Alignment: Precise positioning and alignment ensure the pattern is accurately printed in the specified location on the target object.
  6. Printing: Use the silicone pad to transfer the ink onto the surface of the target object, completing the printing process.
  7. Curing and Processing: Depending on the ink type used, perform appropriate curing or processing to ensure durability and adhesion of the printed pattern.
  8. Quality Inspection: Inspect the printed items to ensure the quality of the pattern meets the requirements.
