Screen Printing on Cylinders

Cylinders are a shape, but that shape makes it ideal for storing air, liquid or simply be part of an assembly. You may be printing a wide gasoline cylinder for storage or an oxygen tank. Both cylinders require opaque identification for user safety. This may lead to a larger print area than typical cylindrical products.


Cylinders also come in various shapes and sizes. Your products' size or desired print requirements may seem daunting, but the engineering team at SA has been working and perfecting cylinder printing for over 30 years. Please contact us today to provide you time tested solutions.

The Model F1-DC is the industry standard for screen printing on your cylinders. Regardless of the diameter or length, the Model F1-DC is versatile enough to print it all. If your cylinder is irregular on the top and bottom, the tooling would be designed to handle both ends of the product during the print cycle print rotation.


The versatility of the Model F1-DC allows you to easily change from one cylindrical product (with different size/shape) to another in less than a minute. We took the complexity out of screen printing, so anyone can use the machine with minimal training.


The image on your cylinder will be both opaque and crisp. You will not find blurry images you would with pad printing, that can't even wrap around your product. Regardless of how large the diameter of your product is, you can print it. Our engineering department has decades of experience at your disposal. Call today to speak with an application engineer.
