Screen printing is a commonly used process in the premium segment, which especially emphasizes opacity, sharpness and brilliance of the print images. This process uses a rubber squeegee to transfer the printing ink through a screen mesh onto the article surface. Those areas of the screen mesh, which should not transfer ink, are being blogged with a stencil.
The machine can use, depending on the material of the article, either UV inks or ceramic inks with the screen printing process.
Printing with ceramic inks requires the use of screen mesh, which are being heated with special screen heaters. Afterwards, the printed ink is being fired at high temperature into the article surface.
On the other hand, UV inks are being cured immediately after the printing process, using an ultra violet light source. To do this, special UV aggregates are being used, which cure and harden the ink immediately after the printing process and also ensure the over printability. High temperature firing of UV inks is not necessary.
The system is closed and features a cooling system with filtered air and a tool less insert system. To achieve the best possible ink adhesion, various pre-treatment processes can be used, which help to decontaminate the article surface and to prepare it for optimized adhesion.
