ITW Trans Tech Presents Worldwide Release of the Syncro Pad Printing Platform
ITW Trans Tech, a worldwide leader in product decorating systems including pad printing, piezo electric digital inkjet, and consumables has released its Syncro pad printing platform. The Syncro is the latest in a line of cutting edge product decorating systems released from the company.
Carol Stream, IL - ITW Trans Tech has released its latest pad printing platform, the Syncro. This is an electromechanical servo driven platform with class leading features. This machine was conceived over several years of intense design studies and is one of the most advanced pad printers on the market. Syncro features a large set of advanced features allowing it to be used as a stand-alone as well as fully integrated automation printer.
A list of key features is as follows:
o 3600 cycles/hour
o ExpressPad(TM) pad system
o ActiveDoctoring(TM) ink cup hold down system
o Servo driven actuators
o Teach and Save job storage settings
o Profiled motion on cliché index axis improves doctoring performance
o SpaceFrame(TM) system
o ExpressLiner(TM) system
o Long stroke capability for printing below base of machine
o Variable stroke adjustment for part and pad compression flexibility
o Increased throat depth for larger parts
o Operator friendly touch screen interface
o QuickRun and Advanced modes for increased customization
o Fully integrated and self-contained tape-off unit
Benefits of the Syncro(TM) are numerous. The ExpressPad(TM) pad system is a significant new innovation in pad printing, offering a big advancement in operator convenience along with shorter set up times.
ActiveDoctoring(TM) allows for increased doctoring performance as well as decreased wear on the cliché plate.
Servo technology allows for many machine adjustments not normally found on pad printers. A key benefit of this technology is the capability to variably adjust the stroke of the pad. The stroke is adjustable such that products can be printed underneath the machine base. This adjustability, coupled with the increased machine throat depth, allows flexibility to accommodate a wider range of products and part sizes not normally found on conventional pad printers.
Syncro incorporates a unique easy program set up feature with "Teach and Save" job storage for fast make-ready and convenient job repeats. Print parameters can easily be recalled for repeat jobs for decreased setup times.
Designed to use the well proven SpaceFrame(TM) and ExpressLiner(TM) ink cup systems, operating the Syncro(TM) improves production efficiency by enabling faster set-ups and changeovers on multiple pad printing jobs.
A fully integrated and self-contained tape-off device is also an option on this equipment. The tape-off device design, with no overhang on the sides of the machine, allows for simplified integration into automated systems and a smaller footprint.
The Syncro(TM) will replace the companies outgoing Sealcup(TM) line of pad printers.
