SteriPack offers customized printing services for the final finishing of your medical device or medical packaging products.
Hot Stamp Printing can be used to create a highly detailed finish on relatively hard plastic surfaces. A tailor made heated die transfers the printing contents from a carbon ribbon and embosses this into the product surface. Small details can be precision printed directly on the product surface and this offers a long lasting robust surface print which is resistant to abrasive contact.
Hot Stamping is especially recommended for:
- Precision printing (even with small details)
- Long lasting print resistant to abrasive contact
- Relatively hard plastic surfaces
- Surfaces that can be exposed to heat
- Suitable of short and long print runs
Pad printing is sometimes more commonly referred to as Tampo Printing and uses a silicone stamp to transfer the ink directly on the product surface which subsequently cures at room temperature. Pad Printing is most commonly used for:
- Curved and complex shapes
- Print content of relatively low need for precision
- Multi-colour print
- Soft surfaces where hot stamp printing cannot be applied
- Surfaces which cannot be exposed to excessive heat
- Suitable especially for longer print runs (small also possible)
- Lower set up and print plate costs
