Boston Industrial Solutions, a U.S. ink manufacturing technology company, has launched the Volta S150 Screen Printer, a single-colour automatic tabletop screen printing machine. The printer can be used for tagless face masks, t-shirts, neck labels, uniforms, underwear, denim material, pants pockets, waistbands and other apparel.
The printer produces wash-resistant and vibrant tagless images on cotton, nylon, polyester, denim, fleece, spandex and ribbed textiles, according to the company. According to Boston Industrial Solutions, the S150’s process is superior to tagless pad printing because of the ability to print bright white images on dark substrates at low cost. In addition, the company says the process is “superior to heat-transfer labels for jeans and denim materials at incredible speed and cost savings”, which it adds is impossible with the pad-printing process.
The Volta S150 is a tagless label printer that can be used by both start-ups and heavy-duty industrial textile printers. Face masks can also be printed on S150, as well as printing on flat, promotional products and industrial parts up to 4.2 inches high. The printer includes an easy-to-use PLC and tool-less set-up for quick job changeovers, an adjustable x-y fixture holder table and variable inking. The printer also features print frequency controls that allow the operator to control print opacity, quality and speed. The printer can be used with Natron screen printing inks, including silicone inks for both textiles and rubber, LED UV screen printing inks, water-based inks and solvent screen printing inks.
