To decorate plastic parts already during the
injection moulding process we have designed the TAMPONCOLOR® In-Mould-Printer
in co-operation with Technical University
Chemnitz (Institute of materials handling and plastics).
This innovative and modular pad printing system
can be mounted directly on top of an injection moulding machine using the
EURO-MAP interface for signal exchange.
To grant best access to the tool area during
set-up the In-Mould-Printer can be
The pad axis is either pneumatically or - for
higher flexibility – servoelectrically driven and moves
vertically into the injection moulding machine. Then the swivel print head of
the TAMPONCOLOR® In-Mould-Printer turns 90° for a horizontal movement to print
your decoration directly into the tool just before the injection moulding
Therefore a second handling step to get a single
colour printed part is not needed.
Like all TAMPONCOLOR®
pad printing systems, the In-Mould-Printer is configurable to the customer
The machines can be used in many
different applications to print on even, uneven or structured surfaces. Typical
items for printing include fixtures and fittings, car accessories, electronic
components, cases, medical equipment, measuring equipment, tools, etc.
Customers for this technology are found in many different sectors of industry.
