Manual Pad Printing Machine

PS-21 C      Closed Cup Pad Printing Machine

PS-21C is a “Closed cup system”. This essentially means that the ink is stored inside an inverted “Cup”. The cup is then held to the metal backed cliché by a powerful magnet (contained inside the cup). The power of the magnet can be increased or decreased by simply turning the knurled dial, based on top of the cup.

The power of the magnet helps to create a good seal between the cup and the cliché. This ensures that no air can get into the cup, hence to the ink. This, in turn, help to reduce any solvents evaporating from the ink too quickly and also helps to keep the ink at a constant temperature.

Having used both, the open and closed systems, we definitely give the “thumbs up” to the closed cup system (especially for beginners or inexperienced printers).

With the closed cup, there is also very little effort required when pulling the handle forwards or backwards as the cup glides very smoothly over the cliché. The cup also incorporates a “Ceramic ring” (With the open ink system a “Doctor Blade” is used instead) which helps to “scrape” away excess ink and thus keeps the entire process clean and mess-free. Ceramic rings are only often found on machines costing thousands of pounds more - but we bring you modern technology as standard and without the normal high costs associated with it.

This image shows the cliché (and cliché holding device) removed from the machine and the closed cup being separated from the cliché. Note how the ink is neatly contained inside the cup with no mess being created.
