M&R Diamondback L Automatic Screen Printing Press
Diamondback L is a 6-color press with a maximum image area of 35 x 28 cm (14” x 11”) that can accept screen frames up to 51 x 61 x 4.5 cm (20” x 24” x 1.75”). Truly unique, it’s perfect for manual shops with limited space looking to break into automatic printing. At the same time, its high-speed servo and 259 cm (8’ 6”) diameter makes it ideal for larger shops interested in a press that requires little space—yet turns out tagless labels, pocket prints, and smaller-format images of exceptional quality. Diamondback L’s heavy-duty casters make it easy to move around the shop—or out of the way when it’s not in use…
DIAMONDBACK SERIES Automatic Screen Printing Presses
The Diamondback Series is M&R’s line of versatile and highly-affordable entry-level presses. Diamondbacks are available with up to 9 printheads and in 8 and 10-station configurations. Maximum image areas range from 35 x 28 cm (14” x 11”) to 51 x 53 cm (20” x 21”). Diamondback presses feature servo-driven indexing to ensure smooth, accurate travel, and pneumatic screen clamps that facilitate rapid screen loading, hold roller frames without special adapters, and deliver excellent stability on a wide variety of screens. Each press has pneumatically-driven printheads; pneumatic squeegee/floodbar clamps with tool-free angle adjustment; pneumatic screen frame clamps; and pneumatic squeegee pressure regulators with pressure gauges on each printhead for exceptional control of print pressure.
Diamondback squeegee/floodbar systems offer independently-set angle and calibrated pressure adjustments; front or rear print carriage stop position that allows operator to leave screens clear or flooded; independent squeegee & floodbar speed adjustments; and visual reference marks every 5 degrees to simplify squeegee/floodbar angle adjustments. Adjustable rear stroke length with tool-free adjustment maximizes print speed.
The control center features touch-screen displays with onboard self-diagnostics; an independent print-start/print-finish setting that automatically activates and stops printheads at the beginning and end of production runs; multiple (1-9) print stroke capability; multi-print in the up position; real-time production data; and a countdown program that indicates when the operator-set index count has been reached. Control panels on Diamondback C, Diamondback S, and Diamondback XL are mounted on pivoting arms for easy access. All presses include M&R’s patented Revolver Print Program, which automatically operates individual printheads in programmed sequence and allows multiple flashing without losing a printing position.
Options include M&R’s patented Optical No-Shirt Detector, which automatically prevents the press from printing on empty pallets, reducing misprints and minimizing press stoppage because of improperly loaded shirts. Optional Foot Pedal Control allows indexing of the press using a foot pedal. The Skip-Shirt foot pedal feature allows operators to bypass empty pallets. Presses can be ordered in configurations that allow them to fit through a 79 cm (31”) doorway. Diamondback C, Diamondback S, and Diamondback XL can be ordered with an additional printhead for placement at the unload station
