ITW Trans Tech has introduced the RedStar MultiCup, a patented closed cup to hold ink for pad printing machines.
A carbide metal ring fits snugly into a recessed groove of the ink-cup liner, letting it ``float'' and form a single, integrated unit. The result: pad printing with a smaller ink reservoir, reducing setup and cleanup time by using disposable cup liners.
The mechanical hold-down MultiCup comes with inside diameters of 60, 90 and 130 millimeters.
RedStar MultiCups are compatible with standard ITW Trans Tech pad printing machines, plates and inks.
ITW Trans Tech, part of Illinois Tool Works Inc., is based in Carol Stream.
