Cup Printing Lamps
Cups, pails and tubes are well suited for decoration using UV inks. This technique lends itself to both high and low volume applications. Methods include pad and screen printing as well as reverse letterpress.
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. Gallium iodide doped lamps are used in applications requiring white ink.
Popular names include Polytype, Van Dam, Metal Box and Kase Equipment. A new generation of Chinese equipment has appeared on the horizon. Not to worry, TCS Technologies can clone most Chinese lamps with higher quality, American made product.
