Customer Reviews

Tim Stough, Printing MangerConductive TechnologiesYork PA, USA
As manufacturers/printers of a very diverse product line, membrane switches, overlays, conductive circuits, pressure sensitive labels and medical sensors, we were in need of a curing line that would be as versatile as our product line. This unit would need to be capable of a wide range of temperatures, be highly reliable, maintain the temperature setting within a tolerance of +/- 5 degrees F, have enough airflow to remove all solvents for a thorough cure and, of course, all of this at a reasonable cost. After very thorough research the Guardian from M&R was chosen.

After several years of experience with these dryers we have found them to exceed our expectations. Great equipment at a fair price, with four Guardians currently in house and one on the way, I do believe we are convinced of the Guardian’s capabilities.
