STAR has just increased our capacity with the introduction of our latest piece of equipment, the Kent G-Turbo 90 S/2 pad printer. This is an industrial machine with two independent pads capable of printing in two colors. It has a solid granite armature for maximum stability and is specially rated as a “green” machine for maximum conservation and recycling of ink.
What is a pad printer, you ask? A special metal die is made for your print application, and this die transfers ink from the print head to your finished part. It’s fast, reliable and nearly fool-proof. It differs significantly from silk screening in that it’s more forgiving of curved or rounded surfaces, thus increasing its flexibility for many applications.
Just one of the small but important ways that we’re always trying to improve our services for your next finishing project.
