Digital pad printing process

The HYBRID 90-2 is a 2-color pad printing machine with integrated cliché production. Thanks to the specially developed ALFALAS Laser Suite software, cliché production - from print image creation to cliché production - can take place directly in the machine. Cliché production is performed using a laser on cliché bands immediately before printing. This means that print motif changes can be carried out in seconds without having to change the cliché. The HYBRID 90-2 digitizes the pad printing process down to the smallest detail and is therefore particularly suitable for very small series.

Laser component

HYBRID 90-2 Vector

The machine illustrates vector-based data. This means that the laser component engraves line graphics on the cliché band.

HYBRID 90-2 INTAGLIO

Edits and renders raster data whose points vary in depth and area. This has the advantages that, for example, grayscale printing is possible and a support raster for the doctoring cup is provided for larger areas.

The HYBRID 90-2 is an electro-pneumatically driven 2-color printing machine with the flexibility of digital cliché production. It is used in the production of very small batches in conjunction with short set-up times. Integrated cliché production is carried out by means of a laser installed in the machine. A specially developed cliché band allows different print images without having to change the cliché - it is simply re-labeled at another position. This is realized by the specially developed laser software ALFALAS Laser Suite. Batch processing of cliché data is also possible. Digital cliché production and the cliché band used in the machine lead to a massive reduction in set-up operations. The HYBRID machine reduces the time and costs for cliché production and storage to a fraction.

The HYBRID 90-2 works according to the proven V-DUO principle with an ink/doctoring cup size of Ø 90 mm. For example, two colors or two different graphics of the same color can be printed in a single run. Laser engraving and print image delivery at one position ensure optimum register accuracy for the individual printing inks. The HYBRID 90-2 is available in two versions: With a vector laser for line engraving and an INTAGLIO laser for raster engraving.

The use of the optional iTAMPOPRINT universal networking and control software opens up great automation possibilities. For example, the ability to connect to an ERP system for seamless data management, or to process external information from camera systems or inspection equipment. In addition, workpiece carriers can also be checked or even controlled by connecting the company’s own iTAMPOPRINT software.
