The company explains operator safety has been augmented with the introduction of guards to prevent contact with the rotating screen, squeegee pipe and gear wheels to help reduce the risk of injury.
A new web-cleaning scraper, positioned on a guiding roller immediately after the nip between the screen and substrate, automatically removes undesired ink splashes on the web that may have spilled from the screen during stoppages or slow-rotation mode, SPGPrint says. Operated only for the first one-and-a-half screen rotations at the start of the production run, the scraper ensures thorough drying of the substrate, minimizing the risk of ink contaminating the rollers and reducing the cleaning requirement.
A new colour interface display offers enhanced visibility with a wider angle of observation so that operators can monitor and control the unit without needing to view the screen at eye level. Among other benefits, this facilitates easier monitoring of controls and ink levels.
