Global print industry OEM Inkcups (Danvers, MA) has announced the release of three new pad printers. The ICN-120, ICN-200 and 2200-DLI expand the company’s current pad printer portfolio to produce larger images on longer goods with extended stroke capabilities.
The ICN-120 is a one-colour pad printer that provides increased flexibility with product decorating and labeling due to larger-area image reproduction – with an extended stroke of eight inches for greater printable area reach. Ideal for the apparel, industrial and safety equipment industries, common applications include: hooded sweatshirts (design location of left chest and neck); apparel sleeves; medical items including sharps disposal containers; denim jean pockets; and tall drinkware such as protein shakers and tumblers. The machine’s 120 mm ink-cup size can print an image up to 4.3 inches in diameter. The ICN-120 also offers an optional pad-cleaning device as an add-on.
The new ICN-200 produces large one-colour prints on injection-moulded plastics, industrial parts and appliances. This industrial pad printer is ideal for one-colour logos, graphics and labels on larger parts up to 11.7 inches tall. In addition to printing large graphics, this machine’s plate accommodates multiple images for smaller parts. The ICN-200 utilizes a 200 mm ink cup, 11.8-inch pad stroke length and can print an image size of up to 7.48 inches in diameter. Typical applications include: plastic containers (recycle bin); kitchenware (plastic and metal paper towel dispensers); food storage containers; satellite dishes, and appliance panels.
Inkcups’ 2200-DLI Pad Printer is ideal for decorating long, hard goods or small two-up items, allowing multiple image print locations on the same part. The 2200-DLI prints one-colour, 2-up on footwear insoles, promotional products and electronics, including Bluetooth speakers. It also enables printing of multiple images on a single part, such as lacrosse or hockey sticks. It has a 90-mm ink cup with a 6-inch pad stroke length, and can print an image of 2.76 x 8.66 inches on parts up to 10.2 inches tall.
All three new pad printers are delivered as a turnkey package that includes the company’s InkcupCare warranty and service coverage. Inkcups also offers multiple pad printing inks, solvents and other consumables and supplies – along with application testing and sample prints on request.
