Pad Print Decoration on Medical Products

It is common to find pad print decoration on medical products. This is because pad printing is well-suited to provide the highly repeatable, highly precise decoration that medical brands and their suppliers require.

What is pad print decoration?
Pad Printing Color Matching

Pad Printing is a product decorating process that transfers single or multi-color 2-dimensional images onto nearly any 3-dimensional object. The pad printing process utilizes a silicone ink cup to transfer ink onto a printing plate. When the ink dries, the resulting decoration is exceptionally durable. Pad Printing provides precise decoration that is durable and highly repeatable for mass production.

What pad print decoration requirements are essential for the medical industry?

Like in most markets, medical companies require repeatable, high-quality decoration. Due to the nature of medical devices, medical brands and the OEMs and suppliers that support them often also require extreme decoration precision, compliance support, and superior print durability. Because of the rigorous nature of approval processes, they also need highly durable decoration equipment (to avoid having to repeat the approval process with new machinery)
