Medical Pad Printing Capabilities Overview

CI Medical’s 35 years of experience has allowed us to develop the medical pad printing capabilities needed to achieve superior printing on complex medical devices. This includes medical ink adhesion with plasma gas pretreatment and medical plastic printing. We operate our state-of-the-art, computerized pad printing equipment in a 20,000-square-foot environmentally-controlled production facility.

Medical Pad Printing Innovation & Technology 

On-site plasma gas pretreatment, specialty medical grade inks and experienced ingenuity enable CI Medical to print on "unprintable" substrates such as:

  • FEP (Fluorinated Ethylene Propylene)
  • PTFE (Polytetrafluoroethylene)
  • Silicone
  • Polyurethane
  • PP (Polypropylene)
  • PE (Polyethylene)
  • Delrin

With CI Medicals state-of-the-art equipment we can print on medical device components of various sizes and shapes. Our multi-color printing capabilities and automatic pad cleaning between cycles ensure precise, consistent markings on difficult medical device components such as catheters, medical grade heat shrink and medical grade fabrics.

By developing new tools, designing new equipment and devising innovative printing techniques, we are actively advancing the technology of our medical pad printing capabilities.

Our engineers continually work with customers to solve common medical pad printing challenges while increasing production efficiency and speed through proprietary modifications in equipment.

As a result, medical device (OEMs) can now expect the highest degree of precision in the printed image, guaranteed consistency between lots, faster turnaround times and higher yields, thus more attractive yields.

Prototype Through Volume Production

CI Medical’s niche volume market ranges from the prototype stage of new product development through full production into the millions. Working with design engineers at the embryonic stages of a new product, we provide a full range of creative problem solving medical pad printing techniques. Our solutions have resulted in significant value-added opportunities for our customers.

ISO Certified Standards

In accordance with ISO requirements, CI Medical maintains quality systems throughout the medical pad printing production process to ensure consistency of handling, lot control integrity, product traceability and quality system maintenance. Detailed documentation and seasoned QC professionals ensure strict compliance to our customer specifications and tolerances.
