The range of available decoration machines is wide and covers different types of techniques. A general understanding of these techniques can help manufacturers choose the right method for their application.
Total transfer pad printing enables the decoration of all types of pieces in ceramics, glass or enamel steel thanks to the application of ceramic color, glass enamel, or precious metal. This method has been designed to decorate the central area, edges, or the whole surface of plates and flatware articles with up to eight colors. An offset screen is used to print a pattern on a silicone plate, where it is picked up and transferred to the article by a deformed and heated silicone pad.
