What makes the Orion pad print machine stand out?

What makes the Orion 130 stand out from other pad printing systems in three key areas:

  • Flexibility
  • Print Quality
  • Efficiency 


The Orion 130 is one of the most flexible pad printers available in the market today.

Multiple Cup Sizes


The system allows users to mix and match different ink cup sizes. A single system can run 60-, 90- and 130-millimeter cups simultaneously. This allows the Orion 130 to produce images of varied sizes.

Decoration Versatility

The decoration versatility offered by the Orion 130 is impressive. Users can print multiple images, multiple colors, or multiple sides of a single part- all with a single system



Print Quality


The Orion 130 also delivers superior print quality.

Multicolor, Photographic Quality Decoration

The Orion pad print machine can print in up to 5 different colors. When using CMYK plus W colors, photography-quality decoration is possible.

The high-quality visual impact of Orion decoration does not require specialty pad printing pads. The Orion is designed to provide superior compression with standard pads.

Application of Long or Large Images

Another Orion feature that provides striking visual impact is the optional cup slide. The cup slide allows users to print images up to 3.5 times longer than is possible with traditional pad printers. Images as long as 460mm can be printed from a single printing plate. This is ideal for applications (like catheters, appliance back panels, and electrical components) that require decoration on longer surfaces.


Consistency for Long Runs

Superior image quality is also made possible thanks to the Orion´s ability to run large thick steel printing plates with multiple images. These thick steel printing plates are extremely durable and able to consistently provide high-quality decoration on long production runs.

Precision Alignment

X/Y pad couplers allow users to quickly achieve precision positioning alignment. No need to waste time or expense on misprints.


Faster Changeovers

Thanks to TransTech´s unique Express Pads- pad changes to are up 80% faster and ink changes are up to 86% faster with Orion compared to alternative pad printer equipment.

The ability to fit multiple images or a single long image on a single extended printing plate enables both quicker print alignment and faster changeovers.

User-Friendly Interface

The user-friendly, intuitive digital interface enhances the system´s efficiency


Efficient Integration

Finally, the Orion 130 also provides highly efficient integration of supporting elements. Items like servo or pneumatic shuttles, IR or UV curing ovens, and pre-and post-treatment systems can all be seamlessly integrated with a single controller for true turnkey performance.



Superior Flexibility, Image Quality, and Efficiency make the Orion 130 an attractive pad print decorating system for a wide range of products.
