M&R Chameleon Manual Screen Printing Press
With its revolutionary two-tier design, unrivaled expandability, and rugged construction, Chameleon is without question the world’s best sampling and manual production press. M&R’s System Integration design allows Chameleon to integrate seamlessly with M&R’s Tri-Loc & Double Tri-Loc Registration System and any M&R automatic textile press to create the most phenomenal registration/sampling/production system available.
With Chameleon’s patented Duo‑Deck™ design four and six-colour models can expand to ten colours. Eight-colour models can expand to fourteen colours, all without expanding the footprint of the press. Chameleon’s expandability also allows manual shops to meet current colour capacity needs with a Chameleon 4, 6, or 8-colour press, secure in the knowledge that they can add future colour capacity by expanding the Chameleon instead of purchasing a new press.
Instead of investing in small, manual-only screen frames that can never be used on automatic presses, Chameleon owners can invest in standard frames designed for automatics. When Chameleon-driven shops step up to automatic printing, they’re not sitting on thousands of pounds worth of frames that have to be replaced. Chameleon even uses the same standard pallets as M&R automatics. Interchangeable frames support increased productivity through manual-press sampling, leaving automatic presses free to perform their speciality: high-speed production.
Chameleon features include a machine-tooled and polished 7.62 cm (3”) centre shaft, heavy-duty tapered roller bearings, extra-large knobs, micro-registration with dual off-contact adjustment, and tool-free spring tension adjustment. M&R’s optional Accu-Stroke™helps users achieve precise repeatability on every print. If you have a Chameleon you don’t just have the most phenomenal manual press ever made, you’ve stepped into the most phenomenal textile printing system ever devised. Chameleon: There’s nothing else like it.
