  • Automates and simplifies one of the least-desirable aspects of the screen printing process

  • Recirculates screen-cleaning chemicals to reduce environmental impact and lower operating costs

  • Stainless-steel construction ensures long life and minimal maintenance

M&R’s Eco-Tex™ automates and simplifies the entire screen-cleaning process, and it handles screen frames up to 132 x 97 cm (52” x 38”). In the process, Eco-Tex reduces environmental impact and lowers operating costs by recirculating screen-cleaning chemicals. Once the screens have been cleaned, Eco-Tex rinses them with a high-pressure fresh-water power wash. Power-washing both sides of the screen simultaneously helps maintain screen mesh tension. The entire procedure takes place in a single automated cycle—and in a single chamber. An electric conveyor with stainless-steel rollers moves dirty screens into the chamber and clean screens out. Cleaning solvents drain back into the holding tank after each cleaning cycle, reducing chemical use and lowering the cost of operation.

Eco-Tex is modular, so an additional chamber can be added to increase production capacity. A single-chamber Eco-Tex can typically clean up to 160 screens per shift (based on two screens per cycle). A dual-chamber Eco-Tex can nearly double that figure. The easy-to-clean filtration system helps prevent foreign matter from contaminating cleaning chemicals and jet nozzles. Eco-Tex has no external moving parts, and it eliminates direct employee exposure to the cleaning process. Since it only requires a single operator, Eco-Tex reduces per-screen labor costs. In addition, the operator is free to perform other tasks while the screens are being cleaned, increasing productivity. Screen holders are available in numerous sizes, and additional holders can be purchased for added convenience and faster turnaround. Eco-Tex is economical to operate, and it helps shops keep screen-cleaning/reclaiming areas clean.

Eco-Tex offers user-friendly touchscreen control over all operations, and it includes complete self-diagnostic functionality. The machine’s compact footprint makes it easy to place in most shops, and its reversible conveyor allows right-to-left, left-to-right or return-to-entry-point movement, expanding options for machine placement. Stainless-steel construction minimizes maintenance and ensures a long, productive life. Low operating costs, versatile design features, and competitive pricing make Eco-Tex the ideal addition to any screen printing operation.
