Inkcups Now, Corp. (Danvers, MA) the leading supplier of industrial printing solutions has introduced a new single-color pad printing machine to the market.

The B100-PC (pad cleaner) includes an automatic pad cleaning system that ensures a clear print, every time. Ideal for apparel and industrial production facilities where there is much sediment in the environment and regular pad cleaning is necessary.

The B100-PC has an advanced adhesive mechanism that extends behind the print area. The automatic pad cleaning mechanism is programmed to clean after every 5, 10, 20 or 50 prints. After the pad prints on a substrate, it then will move over the cleaning mechanism in which the pad presses onto the adhesive and removes any excess ink or debris.

As with every pad printer, the B100-PC utilizes Inkcups’ patented Versacup® pad printing ink cups assembly (two-sided ceramic ring included) and tool-less setup, the B100-PC offers a quick and easy changeover. Unlike other pad printers, the B100-PC is manufactured for industrial, heavy-duty performance. Gain complete control over variable inking and print frequency in order to increase print opacity.

The benefits of utilizing this type of pad printer include:

  1. Remove environmental debris from the pad
    • In some production facilities, mainly apparel factories, there is a lot of excess “sediment” in the air. Since it is everywhere, it can also make its way to the pad thus leaving impressions of this external debris on your substrate. Using the pad cleaning function, your pad is cleaned after every print.
  2. Remove silicone ink from the silicone pad
    • Silicone ink sticks to a silicone product after it is cured but some ink will still stick to the pad pre-curing. If you do not clean the pad, new ink will be applied on top of this ink and cause a misprint. Currently, pad printing techs will clean the pad after a few cycles, but a pad cleaning pad printer can automate this whole process. You can program it to clean the pad after a number of prints or after every print.
