TECH SHOWCASE: PRODUCTION EQUIPMENT Eight-color screen printing press Performance Screen Supply offers the Javelin Pro eight-color/10-station automatic textile screen printing machine, which now features a color touch screen control panel. From the control panel, an operator can program the press and do diagnostic testing. It features icons for various functions and is positioned on the press to allow for free space in the operator area. It also has an on-the-fly timer that allows for stroke changes while the press is in production. The double-index speeds move twice without lifting in-between strokes, and the multiple print stroke is more rapid with the table staying up, allowing users to increase the number of strokes to nine passes. Real-time production data, which includes shirt counting, allows the operator to judge the length of a run and increase accuracy in scheduling. There is a two-year warranty on parts and labor. 800-659-8337 Plug-and-play automatic screen printing press The ElectraPrint Automatic Textile Printer from Brown Mfg. is a plug and play machine which does not use an air compressor, air chiller, regulators or air lines. With a reported 700 pieces per hour maximum, it utilizes a control panel, auto start and shut down and an onboard self-diagnostic system with a motor histo- ry display. Features include manual print mode controls on each head for easy setup, independent squeegee speed control and a multiple print stroke function with print stroke adjustment from 10" to 22". Also, the batch mode feature decreases the number of flashes required by allowing the printer to print, flash, rotate back to the original head and print again. Mechanical features include Brown's drive micro registration system, side clamp screen holders, front screen loading, independent head off- contact control and full machine quick off-contact, independent flood bar and squeegee which are quick release, and indepen- dent squeegee and flood bar pressure controls. The flood bars are winged to add ink control. The machine features a hardened steel registration system, an easily accessible bearing system and heavy-duty steel construction with minimal maintenance requirements. Some models are expandable to add colors and all are covered by a two-year limited warranty. 616-249-0200 82 | PRINTWEAR JULY 2012
