Logos, product names, instructions, indicators and a countless variety of graphic information can be applied to flat plastic surfaces by hot stamping. “Tipping” is another common process where the part has raised letters with a flat surface and a flat die deposits the dry ink only to those surfaces.
Because the part is fixtured below the hot stamping die, the image is applied at a precise location on every part.
Design & Tooling
Dies can be made from suitable camera ready art which is mounted to the hot stamper by a dovetail mounting plate to allow easy change-over. Fixturing includes fine leveling adjustment to ensure even contact.
Hot stampers range from simple hand operated presses to multi-ton systems with automated part feeding to speed throughput.
