Fixtures & Tooling

Automotive A/C Vent Bezel

Here is a two-up fixture that we designed for pad printing BMW air conditioning vent panels. This fixture is custom fabricated and the print area is fully supported to allow for perfect registration of the graphics that are printed.

Wheel Cover Fixture

This is a custom machined aluminum fixture that we designed for printing the wheel covers on Chevrolet passenger cars. This is pad printing the gold "bow-tie" icon that Chevy is famous for. This fixture is designed so that the operator can only load it in the proper orientation to print on the raised graphic.

Automotive Bezel Fixture

This is a fixture that we built for pad transfer printing onto the Toyota Sienna van and this fixture is outfitted with an optical sensor to insure proper part loading and can automatically detect between two different part configurations. The pad printing machine was specially programmed to allow for this automatic detection on this automotive bezel.

Medical Device Fixture on two-position Rotary Table

These fixtures were CNC machined to hold two of the same medical devices and both fixtures feature automatic part rotation (180°). The parts are printed on both the front and back with single color pad printing inks from Printcolor.

Nesting Fixture with Robotic Grippers

This is a two-up nesting fixture that was designed by Deco Tech for printing onto cosmetic caps. This fixture is ported to allow for vacuum hold-down of the caps and these 8 fixtures were CNC machined and mounted to a rotary table system. The two-up grippers were also CNC machined and all parts are hard anodized for long-life and easy press clean up.

Specialty Fixture with Adjustability

This unique fixture was designed to allow for pad-printing onto injection molded goggle frames in several locations. The entire fixture can be precision rotated and angled to allow printing in four different locations. This fixture was also outfitted with a vacuum system to accurately hold down the goggles in the fixture without movement.

8 Station Vertical Rotary Indexer

This unique vertical rotary table system is designed for pad printing miniature graphics onto small electronic parts. This fixture automatically rotates and the top part is printed each cycle a part is automatically ejected into a bulk bin.
