It is able to print text, graphics and images on the surface of irregularly shaped objects and is now becoming an important special type of printing. For example, the characters and patterns on the surface of the mobile phone use this printing method, and the surface printing of many electronic products such as computer keyboards, instruments, meters, etc., are all completed by pad printing.
Pad printing process is very simple, using steel (or copper, thermoplastic plastic) gravure, the use of silicon rubber material curved surface printing head, the ink on the gravure to the surface of the printing head, and then to The desired surface of the object can be pressed to print characters, patterns, etc.

The type of pad printing machine is a special printing technology that has just been introduced to China in the 1980s.

In the early 1990s, with the further liberalization of the Chinese market, a large number of foreign-funded enterprises with traditional industries such as electronics, plastics, gifts, toys, etc. entered the Chinese market one after another. Pad printing technology and screen printing technology were used as the main decoration methods. Extraordinary development, according to incomplete statistics, the use of pad printing technology and screen printing technology in the above industries reached 27%, 64%, 51%, 66% respectively. Pad printing refers to the irregular surface of the substrate (such as instruments, electrical parts, toys, etc.), the use of copper or steel intaglio, through silicon rubber into a hemisphere-shaped printing head, press the ink to the layout Transfer to the substrate to complete the transfer printing method.
