Offers features of larger presses in a 12-foot diameter.
The new X-Type Plus automatic garment screen printing press, manufactured by MHM and available in the US exclusively through Hirsch, is designed to offer the speed and automation features of the company’s larger presses in a compact unit with a diameter just over 12 ft. The AC-driven indexer can be operated in either direction and reportedly delivers smooth print strokes at all speeds and pressure settings. The X-Type Plus uses MHM’s M-Touch pro operating system with an Android tablet interface, giving users access to real-time technical support via a wifi interface. Each station also has its own keypad for making fast adjustments during setup. The press is available in 6-, 8-, 10-, and 12-color models with a standard 16 x 20-in. print area; an LS version with an 18 x 22-in. print area is also available.
