What is the difference between a pad printer and a screen printer?
Dec 28, 2018

The difference between a pad printer and a screen printer:

1. A screen printer is a machine that prints text and graphics on a flat or regular surface, while a pad printer can be printed on all irregular objects.

2. The structure of the screen printing machine and the pad printing machine are different, and the ink transfer process has obvious differences;

3. The printing area of the screen printing machine is basically unlimited, the cost of the screen printing is low, and it can be reused. The printing area of the pad printing has a certain limit.

4. The color of the two machines is different. The pad printing machine can make up to 12 sets of colors and print the products at one time, which is suitable for investment in general factories. The screen printing machine can also do multi-color overprinting, but the multi-color color registration made by the screen printing machine is very expensive and is not suitable for general factory investment.

5. The principle of screen printing machine and pad printing machine is different. The pad printing machine transfers the pattern engraved on the steel plate to the workpiece through the action of the rubber head, just like the stamp in our daily work. The screen printing machine penetrates the ink from the mesh of the screen through the pressure of the squeegee to form a pattern.
