All Sportsman EX screen printing machines feature electric printheads, servo-driven indexers, multiple print-stroke capability, and a new color touchscreen interface with graphical displays and icon-based labeling that can show information and commands in numerous languages, simplifying screen printing and training anywhere in the world. Also included are onboard self-diagnostics and real-time production data display. Sportsman EX 5070 features head supports and strengthened pallet arms for added stability.

The presses are compatible with M&R’s Tri-Loc® Rapid Registration System. M&R’s Laser Locator System speeds pallet positioning and changeover, and it assists operators in the precise positioning of garments and cut-piece goods. Pneumatic clamps hold frames tight and allow rapid screen loading. The squeegee/floodbar park feature facilitates setup and tear-down by simultaneously retracting the squeegee and floodbar and then moving them to the outside edge of the press for easy access. Independent squeegee & floodbar speed adjustments, adjustable rear screen holders, pneumatic squeegee/floodbar locks with tool-free angle adjustment, squeegee air regulators with pressure gauges on each printhead, independently-set angle and calibrated pressure adjustments, and independent print, reset, and print/flood speed controls on each printhead further simplify setup.

Also standard are a tool-free pallet locator system and digital squeegee/floodbar speed displays that enable easy, accurate speed adjustments at a glance. Central Off-Contact permits fast adjustment of all stations simultaneously. M&R’s Revolver Print Program™ automatically operates individual printheads in programmed sequence and allows multiple flashing without losing a printing position. Optional features include M&R’s Optical No-Shirt Detector, which minimizes the misprints and press stoppage that result from improper shirt loading. With their user-friendly touchscreen display and extensive standard-feature set, Sportsman EX automatic screen printing presses are ideal for those seeking unprecedented affordability and versatility.
