Independent squeegee & floodbar speed adjustments, adjustable rear screen holders, pneumatic squeegee/floodbar locks with tool-free angle adjustment, squeegee air regulators with pressure gauges on each printhead, independently-set angle and calibrated pressure adjustments, and independent print, reset, and print/flood speed controls on each printhead further simplify setup.
Also standard are a tool-free pallet locator system and digital squeegee/floodbar speed displays that enable easy, accurate speed adjustments at a glance. Central Off-Contact permits fast adjustment of all stations simultaneously. M&R’s Revolver Print Program™ automatically operates individual printheads in programmed sequence and allows multiple flashing without losing a printing position. Optional features include M&R’s Optical No-Shirt Detector, which minimizes the misprints and press stoppage that result from improper shirt loading.
