Highly-Efficient Two Color Printing

Innovative design enables Morlock MTE systems to complete both ink pick up and print in a single cycle. The system also efficiently alternates between print and cleaning. This design makes MTE up to 15% faster than alternative pad printers.

Individually controlled print heads are capable of printing at two different depths on the same piece. Printing sequence adjustments are simple making the system user-friendly.

Morlock provides three versions of the MTE- the MTE Quick,  MTE 125 and the MTE Long Slide.  The MTE 125 provides larger printing areas as well as superior printing force. The MTE Long Slide prints images up to 300x90mm.
