Sporting Goods Marking Equipment

Print on Sporting Goods

Pad or digital printing is an excellent solution for printing on sporting goods, particularly in light of the frequent curved surfaces such as soccer balls or football helmets, because the pad can wrap itself as much as 180° around a small object. Photo-quality images can be achieved with a five color servo pad printer equipped with a linear shuttle. The servo systems allow for precise image control and the PC-based software allows management production monitoring and troubleshooting. Custom fixturing can be designed to rotate the items for multiple side printing. Several conveyor systems to choose from (linear shuttle, elliptical conveyor, rotary table) to increase volume printing.

Example Applications:
  • Baseballs
  • Footballs
  • Soccer balls
  • Golf balls
  • Ping pong balls
  • Helmets
  • Wooden bats
  • Ski boots
  • Skateboard wheels
