large format screen printing

Posted on Mon, 1 Mar 2004 at 20:49



Hello,
I'm looking for the best suited screen press for the following job. I'm looking to print about 35 4' x 10' vinyl sheets/day with 2 spot colors, then cut with a digital plotter. I've never printed larger then about a 18" x 30" on a clamshell press, would a 1-arm bandit work for this, or are they junk, and too slow for 70 total impressions/day, 8-hour shift, using 2 different screens/colors?

Thanks,
Paul

You can easily do this kind of production on a one-arm. Email me if you want some pricing on 'new' design onearms, we have an economically priced clamshell style or more sophisticated parallel lift models in many different sizes. These presses are well designed, build solidly, feature micro register, and offer many improvements over the old 'one-arm bandits' you may be used to.
