Automatic Textile Presses

Copperhead MINI press

“M&R’s Copperhead MINI is an extremely versatile, all-electric automatic screen printing press. The MINI is designed to use minimal power to operate, doesn’t need an external compressor, and is a simple, low-maintenance machine. The sturdy and efficient design is able to reach incredible printing speeds per hour for a wide variety of promotional product applications. It is a simple matter to quickly produce 10 – 10,000 prints on items such as t-shirt neck tags, masks, HD logos and labels, pockets, sleeves, socks, bandanas, gloves, jean pockets, vests, underwear, innerwear, caps, transfers and much more! By using the MINI to print logos & tags direct on garments, decorators can save time and additional steps over heat transfer labels and other less durable options. By adding the optional mask pallets, the MINI is unmatched as a high-speed mask printer that is able to reach speeds as fast as any operator can achieve in prints per hour. With the combination of efficiency, speed, and ease of use, the Copperhead MINI is a printing machine with huge value in a small size.”

Sportman DPE

sportsman_DPE_overview_1Sportsman DPE
Sportsman DPE has the same simplicity of operation and performance-proven dependability as the Sportsman E, but with room to place flash units between 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″). Sportsman DPE’s maximum image area (without flash cure units in place) is an impressive 76 x 72 cm (30” x 28.5”).

Encore

Encore_Overview_faded_1Encore
Encore is M&R’s newest oval-shaped press, and it’s designed specifically for the needs of cut-piece operations. Built around a 10-station base module Encore is available in 10, 18, 26, 34, and 42-station configurations. The press can rotate in either direction, and models can be set up so that each printhead is followed by one open station (print/flash) or by two open stations (print/flash/cool). No cut-piece press is more flexible. Since Encore’s oval shape takes up less floor space than comparable carousel presses, it makes more efficient use of available production area. This also allows the Encore to fit into spots where no carousel press could. Cleverly-designed safety skirting surrounds the press, and the fully-enclosed ends can be used to stack substrate or to provide easy access to print-related materials. Encore has a maximum image area of 50 X 70 cm (20” X 28”).

 

Challenger III

Challenger3_Overview1Challenger III
Challenger revolutionized screen printing in the 1980s, and Challengers have dominated the industry ever since. Now, M&R’s all-new Challenger III expands on that tradition by combining innovative patented and patent-pending features—like M&R’s Revolver Print Program—with exceptional speed and the best ideas from over 20 years of M&R automatics. Challenger III’s indexer enables double indexing in one uninterrupted motion, increasing production speed for oversize work by eliminating the pause between indexes. Like Alpha 8, Challenger III’s printheads also feature calibrated tool-free click-stop four-corner off-contact settings for fast and accurate screen leveling. Built from the ground up to optimize speed, performance, flexibility, print quality, and durability, Challenger III is ready to dominate.

 

Alpha 8

Alpha8_68671Alpha 8
Alpha 8 is M&R’s exciting new take on the oval-shaped press. It’s modular and expandable—and can be configured for almost any production requirement. Since Alpha 8’s oval shape takes up less floor space than comparable carousel presses, it makes more efficient use of available production area. This also allows the Alpha 8 to fit into spots where no carousel press could. Alpha 8 is available in 3 models: Alpha 8 5070, Alpha 8 6080, and Alpha 8 80110. These offer maximum image areas of 50 x 70 cm (20” x 28”), 60 x 84 cm (24” x 33”) and 80 x 110 cm (31.5” x 43.5″), respectively. Double-index mode on alternating printheads can produce images up to 99 cm x 70 cm (39” x 28”) on the 5070, 109 cm x 84 cm (43” x 33”) on the 6080, and 114 x 110 cm (45″ x 43.5″) on the 80110. The 8-station Base/Drive Module supports up to four printheads, while M&R’s Plug & Print™ modular design provides for expansion—in six-station increments—up to 62 stations on Alpha 8 5070 & 6080, and up to 50 stations on Alpha 8 80110. Alpha 8’s digital touch-screen control panel with icon-based labeling can display information and commands in numerous languages, simplifying press operation and training anywhere in the world.

Challenger III D

ChallengerIIID_overviewChallenger III D
M&R’s revolutionary Challenger III D, with groundbreaking Dynamic PrintStroke™, brings a new dimension to automatic textile printing. Dynamic PrintStroke™ provides programmable control over squeegee pressure, print/flood speed, print-stroke length, and print-carriage position and other settings. The squeegee pressure setting can be varied between print strokes, offering unparalleled control over ink deposit. These programmable print parameters—along with Ink Dip™, Ink Dam™, flash-cure, and other print settings—can be named, saved, and stored as a unique print program in M&R’s Job Recall™ storage & retrieval system. Operators can later recall that job for subsequent print runs. For similar but not identical jobs, the operator can save a copy of the job under another name and tweak those settings rather than starting from scratch. Stored jobs can even be sent electronically to other Challenger III D machines, providing large operations and contract printers with unprecedented convenience and control over production.
