FLOCKER 3000 Automatic Flocking Machine
M&R’s Flocker 3000 makes it easy to add tightly-registered multi-color flocking capability to most M&R automatic textile presses. The standalone unit has a 38 x 43 cm (15” x 17”) or 50 x 70 cm (20” x 28”) flock opening, and accommodates frames of (W x L) 66 x 79 cm (26” x 31”) or 79 x 109 cm (31” x 43”). Flocker 3000 is activated by the print carriage, and it’s compatible with M&R’s print-start/print-finish feature, M&R’s Optical No-Shirt Detector, and M&R’s Skip-Shirt foot pedal. Flocker 3000’s dosing brush is driven by a pneumatic cylinder, with speed settings adjusted by a flow control. Unlike some competing flockers, Flocker 3000 does not require printhead removal.
Locking casters, adjustable height, and the unit’s light weight make Flocker 3000 easy to move around and set up. Its low-profile flocking box allows for easy loading and cleaning, and it’s compatible with the clearances available on most automatic textile presses. The Flocker 3000 System comes with everything necessary to begin flocking, including M&R’s Side Frame Holder Assembly with micro-registration, a 66 x 79 cm (26” x 31”) 61T stainless steel mesh screen/frame, flocker activation switch, manual foot pedal, ten screen magnets, ten 1.3 mm off-contact spacers, and a 61 x 61 cm (24” x 24”) magnetic sheet.
The Flocker 3000 System also includes M&R’s press-mounted Flock-Vac on-press flock remover and M&R’s standalone T-SC post-press flock remover. By eliminating 90% of the flock not embedded in the adhesive, Flock-Vac greatly reduces the fiber that can be drawn into the dryer circulation system. The caster-mounted T-SC combines a powerful vacuum system with stiff-bristle brushes to remove loose flock on garments after they exit the dryer. Flocker 3000, Flock-Vac, T-SC, and all other system components are also available separately.
