M&R's Challenger III D betters automatic textile printing

M&R is pleased to announce the addition of Challenger III D to M&R’s extensive line of automatic textile presses.

M&R’s revolutionary Challenger III D, with groundbreaking Dynamic PrintStroke, brings a new dimension to automatic textile printing. Dynamic PrintStroke provides infinitely-programmable squeegee pressure, print/flood speed, print-stroke length, and front or rear carriage stops.

The squeegee pressure setting can be varied between print strokes, offering unparalleled control over ink deposit. These programmable print parameters—along with Ink Dip, Ink Dam, flash-cure, and other print settings—can be named, saved, and stored as a unique print program in M&R’s Job Recall storage & retrieval system. Operators can later recall that job for subsequent print runs.

For similar but not identical jobs, the operator can save a copy of the job under another name and tweak those settings rather than starting from scratch. Stored jobs can even be sent electronically to other Challenger III D machines, providing large operations and contract printers with unprecedented convenience and control over production.

Challenger III D’s huge standard feature set includes a super-fast, ultra-quiet servo-driven indexer; servo-driven printheads; tool-free calibrated angle adjustments; a large and highly-sophisticated touch-screen controller; and quick-set printhead off-contact (invaluable when printing thick inks or specialty inks like gels and high-density).

Squeegee pressure can also be adjusted mechanically should the need arise. M&R’s Automatic Pallet Preheat Mode with built-in pallet temperature sensor allows operators to preheat pallets to the desired temperature and track those temperatures throughout the production run.

Each printhead includes a touchscreen that provides digital control over squeegee print pressure and squeegee and floodbar speeds. A socket on each printhead makes it easy to position a flash cure unit in any station and make on-the-fly adjustments from the main control panel.

M&R is the world’s largest manufacturer of screen printing equipment, with production facilities in Glen Ellyn & Niles, Illinois, USA, and in Wojnicz, Poland. With distributors and skilled technicians in over 40 countries on six continents, we’re able to provide the finest service and support in the industry.
