M&R SPORTSMAN DPE Automatic Screen Printing Press
The Sportsman DPE automatic screen printing press has the same simplicity of operation and performance-proven dependability as the Sportsman EX, but with room to place flash cure units between screen print stations. Sportsman DPE’s eight printheads and 18 stations enable users to flash between each printhead and still print up to eight colors. Sportsman DPE has a maximum print stroke length of 72 cm (28.5″) and a standard image area of 41 x 46 cm (16” x 18″). Maximum image area without flash cure units in place is an impressive 76 x 72 cm (30” x 28.5”). All models feature servo-driven indexers, electric printheads, and multiple print-stroke capability.
This automatic screen printing machine is compatible with M&R’s Tri-Loc® Rapid Registration System. Pneumatic clamps hold frames tight and allow rapid screen loading. The squeegee/floodbar park feature facilitates setup and tear-down by simultaneously retracting the squeegee and floodbar and then moving them to the outside edge of the press for easy access. Independent squeegee & floodbar speed adjustments, adjustable rear screen holders, independently-set angle and calibrated pressure adjustments, and independent print, reset, and print/flood speed controls on each printhead further simplify setup and increase screen print results. Other standard features include a 14 cm (5.7”) color touchscreen display, onboard self-diagnostics, real-time production data, and an independent print-start/print-finish setting that automatically activates and stops printheads at the beginning and end of screen printing runs.
Also standard are a tool-free pallet locator system, quick release pallet locks, digital squeegee/floodbar speed display, and enhanced front micro-registration adjustments. Central Off-Contact permits fast adjustment of all screen printing stations simultaneously. M&R’s Optical No-Shirt Detector (optional) minimizes the misprints and press stoppage that result from improper shirt loading. M&R’s Revolver Print Program™ automatically operates individual printheads in programmed sequence and allows multiple flashing without losing a screen printing position. With its user-friendly touch-screen display; extensive standard-feature set; and ability to cure after each of eight colors in a single rotation, the Sportsman DPE automatic screen printing press is ideal for those seeking unprecedented affordability and versatility.
