Clean-up of pad printing machine tools, parts & accessories has never been easy and has always been most labor intensive… this is until Osmeco of Switzerland changed this laborious & dirty task into an automatic (hands-off) and green cleaning process to quickly and thoroughly clean your ink cups and printing plates in just 10 minutes! Just load the cups into the basket, push the start button and walk away. The job is now 100% automatic and earth-friendly. The newly updated ecoCLEANER 540AC & 740AC series of pad printing parts washing machines are truly revolutionary, as these systems use a water based cleaning agent & a natural filtering technology to separate ink from the cleaning agent. Continually the dirty cleaning agent is filtered, reclaimed and recycled and is used over and over again – year after year (greatly reducing your consumption of “cleaning chemicals” and hazardous waste). New in 2012 is the “AC” on the 540 &740 name; which means “Auto-Changing” of the filtering medium aka the Adsorber paste. No longer do you need to periodically change out the Adsorber paste – this is now done automatically. You simply pour fresh Adsorber Paste into the filling chamber and the machine discards the waste into a SS bin/ drawer. These ecoCLEANER pad printing parts washing systems are dramatically changing how industrial printing companies wash/ clean up ink from their pad printing machinery/ parts.

Rely on DECO TECH as your team of All-American pad printing experts. Give us a call discuss how the ecoCLEANER can save you money on consumables, labor and time… With the ecoCLEANER you can get your people back on press and printing, where you make money.

HEAT TRANSFER DECALS

DECO TECH has the expertise & supplier connections to get you set up with the "right" heat transfer decals. By "right" we mean that we offer the following types; screen printed, gravure printed or digitally printed heat transfer decals. And which printing method is best for you is highly dependent upon your annual volume and your artwork/ design needs. We work with most of the leading heat transfer decal manufacturing companies in the industry and we can provide you with the right solution at the right price to fit your budget. If you have short runs & need variable information or multiple part numbers in small quantities, then digital printed heat transfer decals would be a great option for you. If you have mid-sized runs (500k and up), then screen printed heat transfer decals are probably the right choice, and if you have very high volume production runs (20 million or more) then high-resolution roto-gravure printed decals may be the best solution and price point for your heat transfer decaling needs. Each of these 3 printing methods have their own set of unique characteristics and here at DECO TECH we work closely with you to ensure that we put you into the right decorating method/ technology for your specific needs. Work with DECO TECH and we will get you going in the right direction!
