rapid tensioning

Posted on Tue, 4 May 2004 at 23:38

Hi everyone,
Is anyone doing the pulse or rapid tensioning method out there, who is doing large format work and screens, (56"x70" and up to 70"x118")? If so, what is your target tension before gluing? What is your tension loss after 24 Hrs? What is the total time it takes to stretch a screen before gluing? What is the tension loss after the fist print run? Do you rip more mesh with this stretching method vs. the staged method? Do you find that the weft and warp threads counts are more, or less, consistent.
Thanks for any info on the subject.

Best regards, Peter Duff.
