East Dorset, VT, United States, 2007/10/04 - The latest in-line solution from Pad Print Machinery of Vermont features horizontal pad thrust, plus the flexibility to accept multiple sizes of inkcups and clichés.
The servo-driven XE-07 and its pneumatic pad-drive counterpart – the XP-07 – are the newest additions to the growing line of pad printing machines designed for automated manufacturing environments.
“Automation in secondary processes, such as product marking, is a growing trend in an increasingly competitive economy,” said Pad Print Machinery of Vermont President Julian Joffe. “Engineering and automation solutions are proven ways to dramatically improve a manufacturer’s bottom line.”
The XE/XP-07 is ideal for horizontal in-line printing of parts that need to stand vertically, and can also be modified to print from below onto the bottom of parts being conveyed over the printer. Two XE/XP-07s can also be configured to print on opposite sides of bottles or other items simultaneously.
The XE/XP-07 pad printing machine is adjustable for use with multiple sizes of inkcups and clichés, plus features a horizontal pad stroke adjustable between 45 and 90 degrees. The machine has the option of being modified to print beyond 90 degrees by special order.
The standard Model XE/XP-07 is built to accept a 60mm, 90mm, 130mm or 160mm sealed inkcup with minimal modifications: simply replace the inkcup, adjust a lever, swap in a larger or smaller cliché and print a 50mm to 150mm diameter image.
The pad stroke is variable to 8 inches and the high-speed brushless servo-motor can operate at a maximum speed of 2,500 cycles per hour on the XE-07 and 1,000 cycles per hour on the XP-07. The XE/XP-07 comes standard as a one-color, single pad machine, but can be modified for printing up to four colors, or with four pads printing a single color.
