All in the Manual
When it comes to getting your shop off the ground, manual screen-printing presses are
tough to beat. They're also a great choice for creating samples and small runs, making
them ideal for almost any shop. For more on the manual screen-printing presses fea-
tured here, see supplier's website and telephone information after each product.
Workhorse Products presents the Workhorse Mach, a
six-color/four-station manual screen-printing press that
is reportedly designed for the team market. The press
includes cast-aluminum print heads; steel construction;
and a large-diameter, full-length centered shaft with
tapered bearings. It also includes an X, Y, and Z micro-
registration system. A variety of optional cap, jacket, and
koozie platens are also available. The press can also be
upgraded to an eight-color/six-station model if necessary.
Brown Manufacturing Group carries the MasterPrinter,
a series of manual screen-printing presses that are
maintenance-free, the company reports. Standard fea-
tures include factory assembly, Direct Drive micro-ad-
justments, side clamps with locking bars, quick-release
aluminum platens, dual-rail platen leveling, a case-hard-
ened steel registration system with a seven-year war-
ranty, and sealed roller bearings surrounding the full-
length center shaft and at the print head pivot points.
