Although most silicone pads are used for transferring images from flat cliché plates, there are also special rotary pads which are used to transfer images from rotary drum clichés. These are specified for high-speed, automated systems in which parts, usually round or cylindrical in shape, are decorated. Rotary pads come in two types of silicone rubber, depending on the particular needs of an application.
