As an industry leader in screen printing, M&R is focused on implementing and integrating all viable technologies to further the garment decorating industry—and the Maverick is just one of the innovative products leading the way.
Featuring a dual-shuttling platform that allows independent pallet shuttling based on the operator’s needs, the Maverick utilizes a process where images can be printed one-off or as multiple copies, and produced in an array of shirt color combinations. The Maverick’s proprietary RIP software provides the ability to adjust many different print parameters and sequences.
Two digitally-controlled heat presses use industrial air cylinders that provide consistent pressure to flatten fibers and heat the garment surface prior to printing. To further aid in accelerating the printing process, quartz tube heaters on each side of the printhead assembly speed underbase flashing, which provides a stable surface for better colored ink droplet support, improving overall print clarity and color brilliance.
The quick-indexing pallets provide more time to load/unload while maintaining high throughput, more accuracy and reliability. These pallets secure the garments in place, eliminating the need for spray tack. Standard pallet sizes are 40.6 x 50.8 cm (16" x 20") with a closed-cell rubber coating to grip garments, ensuring the best registration possible.
The Maverick is designed and manufactured for industrial-level printing demands, with a fully-welded steel chassis, dual-bearing printhead gantry rails and a highly-reliable magnetic encoder. Easy-access panels and interior lighting make print monitoring and maintenance a breeze. The ink supply cabinet houses eight 5-liter main tanks. Two tanks utilize in-tank agitators to keep the white ink from settling out, while an entire ink re-circulation system keeps all inks at peak performance by cycling them from the main tanks through the printheads and back.
