Apex Spark Plug Insulator PrinterSubsequently to the loading station is a pre-cleaning station where the insulators are pre-cleaned using air and vacuum. This is followed by a pre-heat station where the insulator is heated prior to its entrance into the print station. In the print station, the appropriate graphics are printed circumferentially around the insulator in up to four colors, utilizing the standard dry offset printing process.
Following the print station is a flame curing station where the insulator is flame cured before entering into a clear coating or glazing station. In the clear coat or glaze station, a uniform thickness of clear coat is applied via a spray unit prior to the product being indexed into a pre-cure station. The glaze will then be pre-cured prior to exiting the product into either a bin or an exit conveyor unit.
The system can be designed to suit particular line speed requirements.
