Detailed Equipment Information
Saturn Platinum II™ sets the standard for high tolerance printing in a compact press, with a level of control and quality normally found only in large, expensive presses. It’s ideal for applications where absolute precision is critical, delivering exceptional results on circuit boards, nameplates, panels, backlit graphics, flexible membrane switches, glass, ceramics, and four-color halftone printing. Saturn Platinum II uses separate motors for lift/lower and print/flood. The variable-frequency AC electric drive motors are brushless and maintenance-free. Saturn Platinum II’s heavy-duty, chatter-free design and flat metal-alloy vacuum bed provide the rigidity and stability necessary for high-quality prints and long press life.
Saturn Platinum II’s user-friendly control panel simplifies operation by using icons to identify press functions. Squeegee traverse speed and floodbar traverse speed can be set separately. Saturn Platinum II also features M&R’s SoftVac™ whisper-quiet, high-volume vacuum system. Vacuum and blowback are each independent and adjustable. The digital keypad with alphanumeric display simplifies programming, and micro-registration with visual guides makes setup and adjustment fast and simple. Standard features include automatically synchronized, cam-driven peel, which provides flat-flood capability; adjustable front and rear print stroke sensors; double-print capability; pneumatic screen clamps; and pneumatic squeegee/floodbar locks. Designed and constructed with M&R’s Plug & Takeoff™ technology, Saturn Platinum II is prewired for takeoff equipment with power, air and communications (customer specifies right-side or left-side takeoff at time of purchase), so setting up a takeoff unit is as simple as plugging it into the press.
Options include tool-free four-corner off-contact; separate independent foot pedals for hands-free single-cycle printing and for vacuum control of hard-to-feed substrates; and M&R’s dripless squeegee attachment, which prevents ink from dripping into the image area during the flooding process. Sentry™, M&R’s fully adjustable gripper-style takeoff, adapts to virtually any substrate. Saturn Platinum II is the ultimate combination of speed, efficiency, flexibility, and print quality in a small-format press.
