Improve Heat Management
Heat management is a fundamental aspect of screen printing, a challenge effectively tackled by the Stryker. This innovative press is not just about printing; it’s about safeguarding the integrity of every aspect of the process, from the quality of the ink to the condition of the garments. The Stryker’s design reflects a deep understanding of the intricacies of screen printing, ensuring that each element of production harmoniously works together for optimal results.
- 28 Stations and 14 Print Heads: This configuration is a game-changer. It allows for an efficient workflow where flashes and cool downs are integrated without compromising the usage of print heads, a key factor in maintaining the high quality and consistency of prints.
- Quartz Flashes: These are not your average flashes. They represent a leap in technology, heating up rapidly upon detecting a garment, reaching a set temperature, and then deactivating. This feature is pivotal in reducing garment shrinkage and burning, offering complete control over pallet temperature, and ensuring that each print is a perfect blend of art and science.
