Author:Ivan Zhang

1.Output Film

According to the digital artworks provided by the customer,the films are output by an imagesetter.Also,you can ask expert the prepress bureau to make films for you, and most of films for pad printing process is positive. 

2.Coating Emulsion

Coating FUJI emulsion by turning coating machine, dipping coating machine or spraying coating machine.


Put the pad plate covered with emulsion into a drying closet at the temperature 120℃ for 5-10 minutes.

4. Exposure

Put the pad plate coated emulsion covered with a film on the glass table of UV exposure machine, setting exposure time ,and start the  UV exposure machine.

5. Developing

Dip the pad plate into the jar full of FUJI developer liquid for several minutes till hidden image on the surface of emulsion is developed. Then blow it and remove water by compress air gun.

6.Etching by Hand

Use one brush dipped with etching liquid and brush the hidden image 3-5 times so that hidden image is completely displayed. Some plants don't have a etching machine, please continuously take a brush to brush for 30-50 seconds. Because of etching operation only by hand, correct depth of pad plate mostly relis on the operator's experience.

7.Etching by a Machine

For the precision etching and half-tone images,must use a spraying etching machine. Pad plate is put into an etching machine and is fixed by the magnet installed on the frame within PVC etching box. Set etching time and start the etching machine till the machine stop automatically.

8.Blowing and Drying

Take a compress air gun to blow the pad plate and make sure withou etching liquid onto the pad plate.

9.Measure Depth

Standard depth is about 19-23 micron. Actual depth must be comply with the customer request. More etching time,more deep. Measure accurate depth with a depth measure meter.


Remove emulsion on the pad plate by Banana solvent.Clean it by clothes,then spray anti- rustiness onto it and put it into PA plastics bag. Pad plate has been completed.
