Save on Pad Printing Supplies

Quality consumables generate measurable time and cost savings

When selecting a piece of pad printing equipment- you likely spend a good amount of time comparing systems to ensure you end up with quality decoration. Have you spent much time though considering how much of a difference innovative pad printing supplies can make in successful product decoration?

Flashy Figures

Often times, flashy figures are used to highlight the benefits of various pad printing consumables. For example, Trans Tech´s innovative ExpressPads and ExpressLiners can generate up to 25% cost savings and 85% time savings.

Well, that sounds great, right?  But what do these statistics really mean? How do flashy numbers translate into measurable real world improvements?

Beyond Flashy Figures

We can demonstrate this in much more tangible terms. We´ll start by looking at time savings.

Pad Printing Supplies Generate Time Savings

Thanks to our specially designed ink cups and liners, ink changes are up to 85% faster on Trans Tech pad printers than on competitive systems.

Let´s put that in context. Let´s imagine your line runs 24 hours a day, five days per week at a speed of 3,600 parts per hour. In this case- you could save over three hours per week or 169 hours per year. That would allow you to decorate 5,850 additional parts per week. That´s over 300,000 additional parts per year per machine!

What if you don´t need any additional parts? Just consider how valuable it would be for your team to stay focused on your core business for an additional 169 hours/year.


Pad Printing Supplies Generate Cost Savings

This goes beyond time savings. The right pad printing supplies can create significant cost savings as well.

A changeover with Trans Tech´s patented Express Liners could cost $1.63 compared to just over $3 for a changeover with conventional ink cups. If your line was running three shifts a day, five days a week and completing one changeover per shift  – this would generate over  a thousand dollars savings per year per ink cup.


Quality Systems & Innovative Supplies

Quality pad printing systems deliver repeatable, precision decoration on products. Innovative supplies provide tangible time and cost savings to ensure your product decoration is optimized for long term success.

At Trans Tech, we provide both superior pad printing systems and innovative, patented consumables with built-in efficiency boosting features.
