With the filter turned on, decorators using their printers for prepress testing can print close to screen- printed images, enabling the operator and client to make alterations before striking off proofs on the press. It allows operators to digitally decorate garments with screen-printing effects such as simulated-process prints. With the filter, the machine can print a traditional amplitude modulated halftone dot. The operator chooses the dot size and the angle at which the dots appear. The filter is available on all new M-Link and M-Link X models.

With a diameter of slightly more than 12', the press has many of the features of larger MHM machines in a smaller footprint. It features an AC-driven indexer, which is an electri- cal drive system that moves platens to the left or right. The press also has AC-driven print heads for smooth print strokes, the M-Touch Pro operating system with an Android tablet interface, and real-time tech support with a built-in Wi-Fi connection. Each station has its own keypad. The press is available in six-, eight-, 10-, and 12-color models. Standard models have a 16" X 20" printing area, while the LS version has an 18" X 22" printing area.
