One of screen printing’s oldest technical problems has an ingenious new solution.
Ink dripping from the squeegee and coating blade has long troubled printers searching for the perfect result. But now THIEME KPX has the answer to the dripping, which on transparent and backlit substrates, glass plexiglass, acrylics etc, gives printers many headaches.
This new system makes certain that any drips fall into the reservoir of ink being moved on the print and coating stroke.
The squeegee and coater move independently. When printing takes place, the coater moves towards the squeegee so it is above the ink reservoir, in front of the squeegee.
On the coating stroke the squeegee moves towards the coater so it is above the ink reservoir, in front of the coater.
An important development for screen printers we believe.
