Screen Printing

Besides its artistic use, industrial screen print has a wide range of application for manufacturing in small or larger runs. The technique is especially used when other printing methods are impossible to use because of special print substrates, formats or special requirements of the printing color. No other print technology provides as many color effects practically on every material.

Examples
signboards, displays, front panels, plastic housings, varnished housings, optical components etc.

Screen Printing Shema - Bildmaterial der Matthias Wetzel INDUSTRIEBESCHRIFTUNGEN GmbH

Screen printing is a technique where a wiper similar tool, a rubber squeegee, presses ink through a finely woven, textile fabric on the material. This fabric, either made from plastics or metal, is called "screen". The thread size mainly defines the coating size, in most cases screens with 10 to 190 threads each centimeter are used. To separate the area to be printed from the area not to be printed, the screen is prepared photomechanically similar to a stencil. Only the meshes at the areas, where the ink should be added on the print substrate, remains open.

The screen-print technique offers an application for even as well as curved surfaces of various materials, e.g. products from paper, plastics, fabrics, ceramics, metall, and glass.

Pad Printing

Pad printing is a printing method based on sillicone rubber that allows one to transfer patterns, symbols, descriptions etc. on uneven items or various materials without a loss in quality.

 

Examples
optical components (apertures), housings, panels, cylinders, keyboards etc.

 

This intaglio method is suitable for the imprinting of items of different shapes. The surface condition (shagreened, structured and the like) is almost irrelevant. The layout is transfered on a photosensitive plate. The print image forms cavities on the printing plate (cliché). It is flooded with ink and pulled off by a scraper cutter. with a print-image and inked. Surplus ink is stripped off by a metal blade and ink stays only within the etchings.

The silicon-tampon runs over the cliché, soaking up the ink from the slots. Afterwards the print is transfered to the respective material or part.

Digital Printing

  • Digitaldruck

  • Digitaldruck

  • Digitaldruck

This technique is realized by a special 4-color-laser printer and applies for formats up to DIN A3. With a maximum resolution of 1200 x 1200 dpi, we can guarantee high-resolution pronts of extraordinary quality. The automatic color identification produces pin sharp printouts.This technology guarantees the reproducibility for possibly later following print runs.

Afterwards the labels are customized according to your requests.

Examples
PE sheet labels are available in several basic colors.
Printing is possible within the complete CMYK or RGB colorspace.

Technology
Using the Digital Printing Technique, a PE sheet is produced from layout datafile specified in color, font, font size, label size etc. with the help of a laser printer with special color toners.
