The sealed ink cup system offers several advantages for pad printing:
1.Controlled Ink Consumption: The sealed ink cup prevents excessive ink evaporation and reduces ink waste, resulting in efficient ink usage and cost savings.
2.Cleaner Printing Process: The doctor blade removes excess ink from the cliché’s surface, ensuring that only the desired design carries the ink. This leads to cleaner and more precise prints, with minimal smudging or bleeding.
3.Reduced Odor and Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs): The sealed ink cup system helps contain ink fumes and reduces the release of VOCs, improving the working environment and minimizing the impact on air quality.
4.Quick Color Changes: The sealed ink cup is relatively easy to clean and allows for faster color changes during printing. This is advantageous when switching between different ink colors or designs.
5.Longer Ink Life: By sealing the ink cup, the exposure of the ink to air is minimized, resulting in longer ink life and reduced chances of ink drying out or becoming contaminated.
The sealed ink cup system is a popular choice for pad printing applications due to its efficiency, accuracy, and ability to produce high-quality prints.
