Open Inkwell Pad Printing Machine versus Closed Cup Pad Printing Machine
Benefits of Open-Inkwell over Closed-Cup Machine
Bigger Print Area
The print area of an open system is generally much larger than with a sealed system because there are no major limitations as to how wide a doctor blade or plate can be made. Long images on plastic housings (i.e. televisions, computer monitors, vacuum cleaner parts) are usually pad printed with an open well machine.
Spares are cheaper
Doctor blades are much cheaper than Closed-cup. more designs can be accommodated in Pad Printing Plate thereby reducing Cost per print
Easy Color Registration or Adjustments
Color adjustments are made quite easily with an open system, especially when the color needs to be modified on the fly. Color Registration in case of Multi-Color printing is also very fast. Closed systems present problems with color adjustment because they only have a small access hole for adding ink or thinner. Looking at the ink to adjust color is simply impossible
First Choice for Contract Printers
Bigger Print Area, 4 to 6 Color Machine availability and cheaper spare makes brings down Cost per Print therefore it makes it a best possible Choice for Contract Printers
Benefits of Closed-Cup over Open Inkwell Machine
Ease of Operation
Closed-Cup Pad Printing Machine’s only moving part is the sealed ink-cup which does the doctoring operations. and can be managed easily. Highly trained operators are hard to come by in these times therefore it makes the first choice for new customers who have just started Pad Printing
No Ink Evaporation / No pungent Odor
As the INK used is poured in a sealed cup it doesn’t come into contact with Air therefore there is no Evaporation and no pungent Odor moreover it reduces your INK requirement. This makes a lot of difference if you are using EXPENSIVE inks
Smaller Footprint / Low Machine Noise
Closed-cup machine uses less moving parts compared to Open Inkwell machines therefore can be placed in cramped places.
Less Setup time
As there is just closed cup to manage over the plate it makes it much easier and faster to change plates thus reducing downtime.
