Pad Printing Plate Making Video With the Cobalt 300

March 26th, 2010 | Author: Stephen

Have you ever wondered what it looks like to etch a design onto an object with a laser? Well now you can!

Here is a video of the Cobalt 300 in action! A high speed Co2 Laser engraving and plate making machine. The video demonstrates the power of the Co2 laser and the speed of the fast servo driven motor.

Great for anyone in the pad printing industry. You can now etch your plates in house instead of going through a third party (which costs time and money.) Making plates in house can give your company the edge it needs, allowing you to change the images you imprint almost instantly! It only takes 1-2 minutes to etch an image onto a plate opposed to polymer plate making which takes at least 15 minutes.

Easily programmable to do multiple jobs! Start etching your own plates today!

Make that tagless apparel look even better and add depth to an otherwise plain object by adding multiple colors!

This tagless printing video shows the basic principle of multi color printing with the ICN-2500 pad printing machine. The printer uses 3 pads to add more color to tagless garments. Once the ink cups are filled with ink, each pad will be dipping into a different colored ink with only one part of the overall design. You see the pads pressed onto the fixture, where you would position the garment, in order to complete the desired multi-colored design.

The ICN-2500 tagless pad printing machine offers a wide variety of features that allows the user to print the highest quality images with the greatest of ease.

   
Designed for rapid job setup, the ICN-2500 contains a programmable shuttle table and quick-release locking handles on pad and cup assemblies. Multi color tagless printing is just as fast and easy as using a single colored image!

Printer used in this project:
Type: Semi-Automatic Pad Printer
Brand: ICN-2500
Model: Three Color
Standard applications: neck tagless labels, pens, stress balls, other metal and plastic parts…
Unconventional applications: cookies, contact lenses

Tagless T-Shirt Labels in Production!

March 15th, 2010 | Author: Stephen
Tagless label printing is the apparel industry’s newest and hottest trend!

Here is a tag-less video of an actual company that is using the B100 tagless pad printing machine. As the video shows, it is very fast and easy to use in production.

Not only does the pad printing ink dry instantly (which allows for stacking or direct packaging of the fabric), but it also has a “soft hand” texture (no rough surfaces.) The B100 pad printer can generate 1200-2000 prints per hour (depending upon the quality), and best of all tagless printing is cheaper than heat transfer!

Printer used in this project:
Type: Semi-Automatic Pad Printer
Brand: ICN-B100
Model: Single Color
Standard applications: neck tagless labels, pens, stress balls, other metal and plastic parts…
Unconventional applications: cookies, contact lenses

Shapewear is a new trend hitting the apparel industry. Shapewear comes in many forms, it is mostly referred to as underwear/undergarments. Lingerie is also a form of shapewear. With all of these tight fitting clothes, it makes perfect sense to print tagless labels using the ICN-2200 pad printing machine.

Tagless printing on shapewear has many benefits such as:
• No cracking on the label
• No annoying bump where the tag lies
• No Ribbon labels (those annoying labels usually located on the side of the inside of clothes)
• No grin through (reduces visibility on the outside of the clothing where the tag is)

You can always look great and feel comfortable at the same time, especially with tagless printing!
