Bottle Printing Lamps

Bottle Printing Lamps

Numerous plastic parts are decorated using ultraviolet inks/coatings. These include all non-absorbent substrates common to the market including PE, PP, ABS, PS, PET and PVC. All types of plastic components can be printed/decorated with UV including those produced by injection, extrusion and blow molding. Items include cups, lids, buckets, caps, tubes, bottles, pails and tops. Specific products include toothpaste tubes, margarine tubs, cosmetic containers, pens, markers, yogurt & sour cream cups, eyeglass lenses and drink bottles.

For low volume pail, bucket and bottle printing, process is screen-printing or pad printing. Curing is carried out in an offline UV conveyor/dryer. For high volume lid and plastic cup printing, application is by dry offset printing. This is also known as reverse letterpress.​​ High volume curing is​​ accomplished on machine.

The most popular lamp for cup/bottle printing is the standard mercury (Hg) lamp. It is long lived, lower cost and performs well over a wide range of coatings.

TCS Technologies’ UV curing lamps are directly interchangeable with most UV printing equipment including American M&M, Metal Box, Polytype, Van Dam, Kase Equipment, Isimat, Newman Equipment,​​ Osmo, and UV Top along with a host of Chinese manufacturers.
