Dial Printing Machine "Click" to Login or Register 
posted
Copper dial plates are first fired with white enamel then placed on this machineto be printed. First,enamel of the desired color is placed on the engraved master dial plate, the excess removed with a straight edge, the overhead spindle with rubber-like pad at end is lowered and pressed on the master dial thereby picking up the wet enamel from the engraved master dial,next the sliding table that holds the master dial and the blank dial moved to the appropriate position so spindle can be lowered to print dial. This method was faster and much cheaper than hand painted dials.
