Our standard pad printers can be adapted for many printing applications by adding custom automation, multiple color configurations, conveyor systems, custom software and more. Our mechanical and software engineers will work with you to design the best printer for your application.
One of our recent examples is the KP08 and KE13 “Coin Printers”, specially designed 5-color pad printer for decorating on coins and medals. These printers are equipped with a camera and have a single holder mounted on a 360° rotating fixture. The linear shuttle conveyor positions the coin under the camera and using a programmed template guide, will center the coin to the correct print position. The coin then travels under each of the five color pads for printing. This system eliminates the need for color registration therefore speeding up image changes to a few minutes.
The coin printers are operated via a PC touch screen and can be controlled remotely. Multiple printing programs can be stored and recalled at any time. This printer also has an automatic pad cleaning device and can be programmed during any time of the print cycle.
