SCREEN PRINTING


Three top quality bits of machinery from Dave Roper D


ave Roper is the sole supplier of M&R textile screen printing equipment in the UK. Detailed below are three of the latest products available.


K-950 Automatic shirt folder Stryker Automatic oval press


Strykerʼs 10-station base module can be expanded in six-station increments up to 52 stations, and the press is capable of index speeds up to 900 pieces per hour. All but end stations can support printheads so Stryker can be tailored to almost any production requirement. Strikerʼs maximum standard image area is 60x84cm (24x33in), but it can print images up to 100x84cm (39x33in) in alternating print heads. Special standard features include the Maintenance Minder alert system, a Laser Locator System, the exclusive Squeegee Dam system, the Ink Dip ink retrieval system, and the squeegee/floodbar park feature.


Amscomatic's K-950 is a sophisticated high-speed automatic folding system designed to precisely fold a wide variety of garments and other textile items. M&Rʼs patented bottom pulling dual-belt transport system carries garments on a moving belt instead of the stationary plate used on competing systems, making it easy to fold garments printed with high density or gel inks. The entire garment transport system uses a timing belt drive, which runs quieter and requires less long-term maintenance than chain and sprocket drives. K-950ʼs touchscreen interface, mounted on a swiveling arm, controls all operating parameters. Job Recall can store and retrieve up to 99 fold settings for quick changeover.


i-Image STE and STE II


Computer-to-screen (CTS) imaging and exposure systems


M&Rʼs i-Image STE is the worldʼs first all-in-one CTS imaging and UV LED exposure system (patents pending), and it was Pre-Press Product of the Year at SGIA 2014. CTS images are superior to traditional film positives, and LEDs run cooler, save energy costs, reduce screen exposure time, and speed up production. On the inward pass, i-Image STE quickly


generates opaque images on screens. On the outward pass, the scanning UV LED light source exposes the emulsion, producing screens that can be taken directly to washout. i-Image STE II adds a secondary UV LED light source after the inward pass for ultra-fast exposures on dual-cure and other slower-exposing emulsions.
