A two-color, sealed-cup pad printer with integral carousel boasts quick setup and reduced printing costs. The new ICN-2200C eight-station system from Inkcups Now Corp., Danvers, Mass., includes precision shot-pinned (positive-lock) tooling registration that is said to ensure close-tolerance part positioning. This single-point tool mount reportedly reduces fixture costs and facilitates fast tool changes. Also helping to speed setups are XYR microadjust plate-holder assemblies and tool-less quick-adjust pad mounts. The touchpad makes it easy to program pad stroke, pad delay, ink mixing, ink pick-up frequency, and part index. Ample compression force allows use of large and hard printing pads.
