  • Sportsman EXG occupies the sweet spot where press size, image area, print speed—and price—converge

M&R’s Sportsman® EXG automatic screen printing press is exceptionally fast, with a large 51 x 51 cm (20” x 20") maximum image area, compact footprint, and aggressive pricing. It’s available in 12 and 14-color models and offers a wide array of standard features, starting with a servo-driven indexer that combines higher screen printing speeds with exceptional smoothness, consistency, and longevity; variable-speed electric printheads for smooth print strokes and exceptional control; central off-contact for fast, incremental single-lever adjustment of all stations simultaneously; and a color touchscreen control panel with graphical display that provides onboard self-diagnostics, real-time production data, and user-friendly control over most press functions. M&R’s exclusive Maintenance Minder™ System alerts operators when scheduled maintenance is due. Sportsman EXG’s capacity for screen frame sizes up to 66 x 91 cm (26” x 36”) gives screen printers the ability to utilize their stock screen inventories.

Sportsman EXG also offers digital squeegee/floodbar speed display, independent print-start/print-finish, and multiple print-stroke capability. 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. 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. Adjustable rear screen holders, quick-release pallet locks, pneumatic screen clamps, and pneumatic squeegee/floodbar locks further simplify setup and teardown. Independent print, reset, and print/flood speed controls on each printhead; independent squeegee & floodbar speed adjustments; independently-set angle and calibrated squeegee and floodbar pressure adjustments; and a squeegee air regulator with a pressure gauge on each printhead deliver the speed and print quality that professional screen printers demand. M&R’s Revolver Print Program™ automatically operates individual printheads in programmed sequence and allows multiple flashing without losing a printing position, giving screen printers a level of flexibility unavailable on other screen printing presses. Sportsman EXG features enhanced front micro-registration adjustments with visual guides and locking rear micro-registration to simplify setup. The combination of Sportsman EXG’s sophisticated registration features and M&R’s Tri-Loc® Rapid Registration Systems can reduce setup time by up to 95 percent.

The Sportsman EXG automatic screen printing machine is so fully equipped with standard features that there are only two options: M&R’s Foot Pedal Control and M&R’s Optical No-Shirt Detector. The Skip-Shirt Foot Pedal feature allows operators to prevent the press from screen printing on empty pallets. The Optical No-Shirt Detector handles the task automatically. With its large print size, exceptional speed, and long list of standard features, the affordable Sportsman EXG automatic screen printing press is the ideal addition to any size shop. If you’re looking for the sweet spot where press size, image area, print speed—and price—converge, you’ll find it in M&R’s Sportsman EXG.
