Optimal solution identification by ITW TransTech
How do we discover the optimal solution for YOUR application?
Our formula for success is straightforward:
Optimal solution Identification is precision needs analysis plus technology mapping.
Precision Needs Analysis

Trans Tech’s applications team is highly skilled in precisely analyzing a wide range of factors in order to present the best possible technology approach for a particular product decorating challenge.

We take into account:

  • Substrate characteristics (geometry, surface features, etc)
  • Image size and complexity (level of detail, number of colors)
  • Production environment
  • Safety requirements
  • Required production volumes

  • Compliance/validation requirements (including the possible need for an integrated vision system)
  • Customer engineering skill level
  • Need for pre-and post-treatments
  • Application performance requirements and environment

Technology Mapping

Armed with a thorough understanding of your needs, our team swings into action matching them to available technologies. We consider a number of factors including:

  • Artwork generation or tweaking
  • Pad options
  • Printing plate requirements
  • Ink requirements

  • Pre- and post-treatment
  • Pad printer characteristics
  • Automation needs

Putting it together…Optimal Solution Identification

Having completed a precision needs analysis and technology mapping, Trans Tech can confidently present (often in SolidWorks™) the optimal pad printing solution for your unique application.

Optimizing Your Existing Projects

Workflow & Performance Audits

Our Optimal Solution Identification service is ideal not only for new projects but also for conducting workflow and performance audits on EXISTING pad printing lines.


Customers often underestimate the amount of savings that can be generated with a workflow and performance audit on existing lines.


Even if your system has run well for years, it is very possible that new innovations have emerged since your install. The experts at Trans Tech can help you retrofit your existing printing operation to include the very latest in pad printing technology.  Strategic retrofits can generate significant cost savings and help ensure systems run longer.
