The microPrint MODUL 110 is the smallest unit in the MODUL Series of pad printing machines. Any MODUL machine can be ordered as a standalone print head(s) or we can integrate these into single or multi-color pad printing automations. Multiple MODUL pad printing heads can be combined into one centralized system which can be operated over a single PLC and a single touch screen display. In this configuration all of the multiple heads are controlled from one location and settings that are saved from a single MODUL, can be moved or copied to the next adjacent MODUL in the chain. Also all job parameters can be stored and easily recalled. Each MODUL 110 pad printing head can be outfitted with either 56, 70mm or 86mm (2.2”, 2.75" or 3.38") diameter magnetic ink cups and like all the other MODUL series machines in the line-up, the MODUL 110 is fully programmable from the touch screen and you can program the machine to pick up various artworks on the cliché at different locations on the cliché. The MODUL Series of pad printing machines are fast (linear motor technology), flexible, one-color pad printing machines. The pad and cliché positions (X/Y/Z) can be easily programmed via the user-friendly touchscreen and the print sequence can be easily defined with simple-to-learn graphic icons. Furthermore you can pick up the ink from the cliché multiple times to allow for more opaque prints in each cycle – this is commonly used when printing large white background images on a dark substrate. You can also pick up multiple images from the same cliché and print those in multiple/ programmable locations. All MODUL Series pad printers are equipped with an Ethernet interface. The machine parameters can be saved with PC software or automatically over an internal SPS control onto your local server. Remote access allows us to rectify any problems directly and to upload software updates onto the machine as required. As an option, the MODUL Series pad printing modules can be accessed with real-time Ethernet (e.g. EtherCAT) which gives your plant more control to select machine/ job programs and transfer them to various production cells, and with this option you have additional control signals and operating parameters that can be accessed from management’s desktop computer or laptop. As a further option, all MODUL Series units can be upgraded with a barcode scanner with which the appropriate printing sequence can be selected. This feature reduces setup times and simplifies work steps. All standalone MODUL Series machines are equipped with two interface ports for adding automation accessories. This makes it much easier for the customer to mount his own automation components. Several options are available such as: sensors to recognize the parts are present, vacuum units with monitoring systems, pneumatic retainers or pneumatic shuttles and part rotating units.
