TUBOY automatic tube screen printer


The TUBOY is a fully automatic cosmetic tube and cylinder screen printing machine that offers increased productivity and unrivalled value for the money. The TUBOY features automatic handling of rigid or flexible plastic tubes and is available in 1 to 4 color versions. The TUBOY is driven by a WEISS brand TC series mechanical rotary indexing table that features a barrel cam. The UV screen printing inks are automatically cured with high powered UV lamps positioned after each printing station. After loading of the flex or rigid tubes there is a pre-flame treating station and de-ionizing/ cleaning station to ensure quality printing results with fewer defects. Furthermore the TUBOY automatic UV tube screen printing system can be equipped with an optical stepper motor driven re-registration device to allow for re-printing of tubes that have already been printed (typically used to print in register onto offset printed tubes).

*Color to color registration is typically found to be ±0.25mm (.0098”) due to tolerances in tube diameters (I.D.)
