We did pad printing for quite awhile and then went to a laser machine and went to all back lit instruments. We have the Pad Printer we used then. What kind are you looking for. This one is a sealed cup, two color with shuttle, semi automatic, exposure unit, 22 piece assortment of pads, etc. This may be more than you need right now though.
As for the faces, you will need a vacuum to hold them when printing or they will lift up when the pad retracts. You will also probably need a screen finish on the plate for any large solid areas but if the letters/numbers are very small, you can get by without the screen.
Have a BLESSED day.
God Bless you

my wife and I have just started a pad printing business. We purchased a one color sealed cup auto machine. Can you please give us some advise from your exprience as to what should we expect. What are the pros and cons of this business.
Is there anything we should be aware of as beginners.

P.S. Any technical or any other issues i.e with suppliers..................ect.

Thanks in advance for your help in this regard.

I have a used 4 color Autoroll machine in good condition that was purchased from Fossil Watch in 1997 when they decided to outsource the incentives and specialty dials. It is a rock solid machine for printing dials. If you're interested, reply with your phone number and I'll call you to discuss.
