How To Use Flat Screen Printer

  •  If you have ever been to a screen printing supply store or printing shop, then you have probably seen Flat Screen Printer. Most of these printing presses rotate like a carousel and have rotating screens suitable for different printing stations. The technical term for these printers is manual rotary screen printers. MRSPP is designed to help you effectively print multiple colors for each design. The carousel design can rotate clockwise or counterclockwise, depending on your dominant side (right or left). Most right-handed printers push the workstation to the left. The example given below will be based on the left and clockwise movement of this 4-color 4-station printing​​.

    You need to set up 4 different stations: a printing station, a fast curing station, and 2 cooling stations. This type of layout will allow you to continuously print and layer on colors/prints. The printing station is where the screen printer wants to stand and where the printing press operates. This will be where you start and finish your work.

    In the first station, you load the clothes on the platen and perform the first screen printing layer. Be sure to use the test ball to make sure you have the ideal settings before using the purchased clothing. When you push this platen to the left, it will reach the flashing station. When your ink layer dries, you will be able to start the process again at your "home", you will load another piece of clothing at the first stop and make your first screen-printed layer.

    The fast curing process usually takes the time you need to load and print the first layer on the next garment, and it usually takes extra time to remove the finished shirt from the drum and place it on the belt dryer.

    After the garment has solidified, you will move the platen to the left again, which will set up another printing station (the first cooling station) for you. When you are busy with work at the "home" station, allow time for the garment to cool down.

    When you move the machine to the left again, the garment will be in the second cooling station. Make sure that the shirt now has enough time to cool down completely before moving and printing again. Usually avoid sticking and over-cured ink, because the tray will not be too hot.

    This process continues, but Stenter stays in place, only completing his work in his hometown. Take the time to properly unload the shirt, reload the shirt and press the first layer of the design. The same technique is also applicable to multi-head manual rotation systems.

    The printing station can not only rotate multi-color printing, but also rotate the opacity of double printing, as well as white background printing for 2-color jobs. It's best to rotate the print station in the opposite way, so counterclockwise seems best for right-handed people who swing the tray to the left.

    Once you enter your woods and practice this system, Stenter will run smoothly and very effectively. Just like anything, although it takes some work to get into the rotation of things.
