We provide plastic printing services for industrial applications. We print cost-effective screenings, logos, or markings to large batches, as well as to proto series and short batches. Our experts are happy to help you in selecting the suitable printing method.
Versatile plastic printing methods
Our printing services include screen printing, digital printing with large format printer, and laser marking. Screen printing allows large batches to be processed quickly, while large format printing bends into smaller proto batches without tooling costs. Laser marking is the perfect solution when printing requires variable information such as a batch or serial numbers.
Our plastic printing services produce high-quality printings based on specific customer requirements. For example, the quality of screen printing and printable materials are monitored with an integrated machine vision system.
Plastic printing methods offer benefits to various industrial applications. For example, machine or vehicle glazing is finalized with screening, which helps glazing to be assembled in the cabs. Also, screening protects window glazing adhesive from UV radiation. Screen printing is a cost-effective method to produce screening to large glazing batches.
Yacht and gondola glazing also gain benefits from printing techniques. Flat surfaces can be utilized for branding purposes. In addition, medical devices have high requirements and involve various markings and numberings. Screen printing also offers advantages for this purpose. Similarly, elevators and ice hockey arenas receive the benefits of screen printing or digital printing.
Plastic printing technologies
Screen printing is a highly specialized printing technique for flat plastic surfaces. This printing technique is compatible with various plastic materials, and we can customize the colours to make your design to stand out. It helps to create a unique identity for a particular element. Screen printing on a plastic material will be waterproof, steam proof, neat, and will no peel off or fade.
The screen printing method is fast and relatively affordable for large batches. We have professional screen printing capacity for various applications. The automated screen printing line increases the cost-efficiency of the printing process. The quality of screen printing is ensured through the machine vision and quality control system. The machine vision controls both the quality of plastic sheets and screen printing.
Raw materials: PC, PMMA, PETG Sheet sizes: from 500 x 800 mm to 2,050 x 3,050 mm Thickness: 2-30 mm Applications: automotive industry, work machine windows, screening
Digital printing is a fast plastic printing method. Digital printing enables the printing individual of logos, texts, or markings for industrial applications. We use the Ricoh Pro T7210 large format printer for digital printing. The printer uses ultraviolet lights to dry or cure ink to the sheet as it is printed.
The platform is suitable for applications that require, in addition to a wide range of substrates, a flexible ink with excellent adhesive properties. UV cured inks are weather resistant and provide increased resistance to fading. For instance, windshields of vehicles are a great application to utilize the printing services. Digital printing is also a suitable method for testing product development prototypes.
Raw materials: PC, PMMA, PETG Sheet sizes: from 100 x 100 mm to 2,050 x 3,050 mm. Thickness: 0.2-110 mm Applications: ice hockey rinks, logos and pictures, screening
Laser marking offers a quick and cost-effective method for marking plastic products with consecutive numbering. Full traceability of materials is a growing customer requirement. For example, the pharmaceutical industry requires the traceability of materials. Marking plastic products by laser allows the material to be traced easily.
Plastic products can be identified with an image, text, logo, QR code or barcode, for example. In addition, laser marking is an excellent way to mark the ECE R43 approval mark on vehicle or machine windows. The method achieves a durable marking on a plastic surface and changing or demanding conditions do not impair the permanence of it.
Raw materials: PC, PMMA, PETG Sheet sizes: up to 1200 x 2400 mm Thickness: up to 20 mm Applications: food industry, pharmaceutical industry, vehicle or machine windows
Plastic printing materials
Polycarbonate, acrylic and PETG, from world leading manufacturers, are suitable transparent semi-finished plastic materials for our printing methods.
PC - Polycarbonate
PC is a suitable material for screen printing, digital printing as well as laser marking. It is a particularly useful raw material when impact resistance and transparency are required. Polycarbonate sheets are commonly used in automotive components, medical devices, and protective gear. Products made from PC include for example safety goggles and glazing for forest machines, tractors, and yachts.
PMMA or acrylic, is an amorphous thermoplastic, which is available in cast or extruded qualities. PMMA is a suitable material for screen printing, digital printing, and laser marking. Acrylic can be used in ice hockey arenas, noise barriers, medical devices, and windshields of boats and yachts, for example. Being highly weather‑resistant, acrylic is well suited to outdoor applications.
PETG is an amorphous copolyester and its best qualities include a high impact strength, a good fire rating and resistance to low temperatures. PETG sheets are easy to silk screen print, making the material suitable for different printing techniques. Ideal applications for PETG are displays, or flat and formed machine coverings, for example. The material is also available as bio-compatible version.
