Pads

With pad printing stamps both the size, hardness and shape of the stamp are decisive for the quality of your result. That is why at Lopritec, you can find pad printing stamps in all shapes, sizes and levels of hardness in both the antistatic blue and the classic red variant. 

The advantage of antistatic pads is that they don't get contaminated as fast and they last much longer (over twice as long) than the classic red variant.

Ink

It goes without saying that it is important to use the right ink to get a beautiful printing result that will last. You don't just want a beautiful color, you also want a wear-resistant result.

The material you want to print on is the  most important factor when choosing the ink, but also the intended use of your product is very important. For example, does the ink have to be mechanically wear-resistant? Or chemically resistant? Maybe you would like edible ink? 

Safety and the environment are very important to us. That is why we keep the use of hazardous substances to an absolute minimum; without compromising on the quality of the printing.

In this way, we create a range of inks that offers a solution for every problem.

Printing plate

The printing plate is a decisive component in the pad printing process. This is the plate in which your image is etched, so it goes without saying that it is at the basis of a good result. 

There are three main types of printing plates available: 

  1. polymer printing plates for small print runs;
  2. thin-steel printing plates for medium to large print runs;
  3. thick steel printing plates for large print runs. 

The choice of ink is also important for the depth of the etched print image. 

We are happy to help you determine the ideal printing plate. 

Foliedrukfolie

Film

The suitable film for hot stamping depends mainly on the material to be printed, the print image itself and the adhesion requirements. The nice thing about hot stamping is that playing with the film allows you to obtain a whole range of special effects, such as holographic effects, matt effects, shiny effects and even 3D effects. 

It goes without saying that the choice of film is one of the most important choices to be made with hot stamping. That is why we do not commit ourselves to just one film supplier. We find out which film is the most suitable and deliver custom rolls

Both the diameter of the core and the width and length of the film can be made-to-measure. This way, we reduce waste and optimise your process.

Hot stamping stamps

Wheareas in pad printing the image is etched out in the printing plate, in hot stamping the print image is transferred through the stamp. Each print image therefore needs its own stamp, and it goes without saying that the stamp has a direct influence on the print quality.

In general there are three types of stamps: 

  1. silicone stamps;
  2. 3D silicone stamps for non-flat products;
  3. brass stamps. 

We are always looking for the most suitable solution for your project. Our experience allows us to develop the most cost efficient and quality stamp, according to your needs. 

make-readies

Make-readies

Make-readies are tools specific for hot stamping. These include heat-conducting fasteners for the stamp and flexible bands that absorb irregularities in the product. 

Depending on the product to be printed, the compressive force of your machine and the design of the print image, we can figure out which make-ready is the most suitable for you. 

Here, too, our experience allows us to find the best solution for your project.

Pre-treatment equipment

With some materials it is very difficult to attain a good adhesion. These are mainly polypropylene (PP), polyethylene (PE) and polyethylene terephthalate (PET)

Here too, Lopritec has the solution ready in the form of a corona, gas ignition or plasma. The type of material and the adhesion requirements are the most important factors for determining the type of pre-treatment.  

A tailor-made standalone pre-treatment installation is also an option
