The pad printing machine first appeared in Europe, and the “pad” was used to transfer the pattern on the plate, so it was called “Pad printer.” It was actually an indirect printing method. Pad is an intermediate carrier made of silicone rubber. It should be called a plastic head printing machine. However, this method of literal translation is not enough image, and Hong Kong practitioners first translate it into a pad printing machine.
The pad printing head is very soft and easily deformed, so the pad printing machine is very suitable for injection molding products with complicated shapes. At present, there are more than 30 factories in China that produce pad printing machines. The more famous brands are KENT, WINON, Etc.
