Printing Machine Type MP-S Efficient Semi-Automatic Machine for
Printing on Flat Glass
Fleischle eKfm will present the semi-automatic screen-printing
machine type MP-S for printing on flat glass at the Glasstec 2006.
Important aspects of this machine are what the company calls its
short change-over times, easy machine handling, high productivity
and realiability, as well as optimal printing results. With this
machine type the glass panels can be manually loaded directly on
the print table and positioned between masks in a 3-point-alignment
system or by using a lifting device. Due to this no pre-positioning-station
is needed, according to Fleischle.
print process gets started by pressing the foot pedal. Printing
is done in longitudinal direction from right to left where the pneumatically
adjustable squeegee pressure is designed to guarantee an equal application
of the ink. The screen-lift works pneumatically. The safety during
the lowering of the machine top is provided by a well-matured safety
system. This system is working without light barriers and without
disturbing contact rails.
The machine type MP-S is drawn up for single pieces as well as
for large series and guarantees an absolute repeatability. The machine
is manufactured in four standard sizes having a maximum printing
format of 700 x 1000 mm, 1000 x 1600 mm, 1200 x 2400 mm and 1600
x 2800 mm. Glass with a thickness from 1.5 mm up to 19 mm can be
printed. Special sizes are also available for delivery.
The machine enables users to also print longer glass panels, as
the round shafts, which lift the machine top, are placed so that
oversized glass panels can project out the left and right sides
of the machine. It can also be integrated into a printing line and
will then be loaded and unloaded sideways via the transferring conveyors.
The stable assembly of the machine in connection with other components
for instance Fleischle's well-proven print unit with anti-drip-system
as well as the absolute plane print plate surface (Fleischle-patent)
contribute to an effective printing result.
Upon requeset, Fleischle also takes care of the planning and the
realisation of fully-automatic and three-quarter automatic screen
printing lines being equipped with glass washing machines, transferring
units, roller coating machines, IR or UV dryers etc.
