Our HERMETIC Series
Excellent Standard Machines for Classic Linear Pad Printing with Sealed Ink System
The machines in our HERMETIC series are our tried-and-tested all-rounders, classics of linear pad printing. For decades they have been state-of-the-art, because we are consistently improving them. That's why, today, they are still setting benchmarks for what is possible with linear pad printing. And not just when it comes to precision, but also in terms of flexibility and efficiency. They work, last and pay off.
The electromechanical drive delivers outstanding energy efficiency and quiet operation. Thanks to its cam control it also provides a constant force-travel profile. In other words, the force profile remains precise and stable, regardless of external influences. Once it is set up, the stroke and pressure do not need to be adjusted further. This is true even when swapping to pads of different hardness. What's more, the machine can be moved in inching mode (increments) for precise setting.
Sealed Ink System
The sealed ink system with adjustable pressure of the ink/doctoring cup allows for high clock speeds. It also prevents a change in viscosity owing to evaporation – during breaks in work, for example. This largely eliminates the need for subsequent mixing in of thinners. Moreover, the machines are fitted with the thinner dosing system.
Intelligent Machine Design
The intelligent machine design is ergonomic, easy to maintain and compact. Thanks to excellent accessibility, the print motif can be swapped in seconds, virtually without tools. As well as short process changeover times, this ‘tidy’ construction means that the operator can get a clear view of the mechanical processes at a glance. This is a priceless benefit: the better you understand your machine, the more you can achieve with it. And it will produce better, faster results.
Automatic Pad Cleaning and Ink Residue Pick-Up System
HERMETIC machines can be fitted with an automatic pad cleaning system. This can be used before starting printing, after breaks or on reaching a particular cycle count to remove ink residue and dirt from the pad, quickly and reliably. The module takes up little space, fitting securely within the compact housing.
HERMETIC machines are characterized by their outstanding flexibility. They can be adapted to a wide range of requirements. The substruction can be fitted with x/y cross tables or with rotary indexing plates. There is a choice of doctoring cups: different sizes, dual ink cups and even special doctoring cups for fats and other "non-ink media". The range of pads for HERMETIC machines is almost limitless: there are more than 1000 standard pad types of different sizes, shapes and hardness. And of course, the HERMETIC machines can also be fitted with special pads, custom made by us for you.
