Large single printhead design optimizes speed and image quality
Precise, repeatable imaging compatible with M&R’s Tri-Sync™ registration system
M&R’s i-Image K is a large format computer-to-screen (CTS) imaging system that is a popular choice among some screen printers that wish to continue using their standalone exposure systems. However, the vast majority choose the convenience of having CTS imaging and UV LED screen exposure in one machine since the imaging/exposure combination takes up less space, requires no standalone exposure unit, and dramatically reduces the time and effort required to prepare images for screen printing.
In order to ensure proper screen image placement, M&R designed the Tri-Sync™ System. The system’s PRINT button illuminates when the contact indicators determine that the screen has been properly locked in place, ensuring that every CTS-generated screen is correctly pre-registered for M&R’s Tri-Loc registration system. In fact, the Tri-Sync System prevents images from being printed if the screen frame has not been properly loaded (this feature can be turned off). Every i-Image K model also includes a Tri-Sync pallet. The pallet’s contact indicator lights up when the screen is properly positioned on the press, giving users the same confidence when registering screens on the press that they have when loading screens onto an i-Image unit. M&R’s Tri-Sync System virtually eliminates operator screen loading errors on the i-Image K and registration errors on the press.
i-Image K uses specially-formulated water-based UV-blocking ink, advanced high-resolution CTS inkjet printer technology and a single wide printhead to quickly generate opaque images on emulsion-coated screens. CTS imaging eliminates the cost, space and labor of traditional film, while delivering greater detail, smoother halftone transitions, and virtually eliminates exposure undercutting. And because the image information is digital, it’s easy to store and quick to retrieve.
