Using a manual pad printing machine means you need to drag and press the printing pad by yourself, and this kind of machine has a lower pad printing machine price but will cost more time to print. Automatic pad printing machines also need people to replace the object. You can finish the replacement process by a human, or use a conveyor belt to finish the full automation.

What is auto print machine?

The auto print machine uses ink and a screen to print patterns on the flat surface. Usually, auto print machine needs screens to finish this printing process, and once the screen made, it can be used many times.
