CHALLENGER III D Automatic Screen Printing Press



M&R’s revolutionary Challenger III D, with groundbreaking Dynamic PrintStroke™, brings a new dimension to automatic textile printing. Dynamic PrintStroke™ provides programmable control over squeegee pressure, print/flood speed, print-stroke length, and print-carriage position and other settings. The squeegee pressure setting can be varied between print strokes, offering unparalleled control over ink deposit. These programmable print parameters—along with Ink Dip™, Ink Dam™, flash-cure, and other print settings—can be named, saved, and stored as a unique print program in M&R’s Job Recall™ storage & retrieval system. Operators can later recall that job for subsequent print runs. For similar but not identical jobs, the operator can save a copy of the job under another name and tweak those settings rather than starting from scratch. Stored jobs can even be sent electronically to other Challenger III D machines, providing large operations and contract printers with unprecedented convenience and control over production.

Challenger III D’s huge standard feature set includes a super-fast, ultra-quiet servo-driven indexer; servo-driven printheads; tool-free calibrated angle adjustments; a large and highly-sophisticated touch-screen controller; and quick-set printhead off-contact (invaluable when printing thick inks or specialty inks like gels and high-density). Squeegee pressure can also be adjusted mechanically should the need arise. M&R’s Automatic Pallet Preheat Mode™ with built-in pallet temperature sensor allows operators to preheat pallets to the desired temperature and track those temperatures throughout the production run. Each printhead includes a touchscreen that provides digital control over squeegee print pressure and squeegee and floodbar speeds. A socket on each printhead makes it easy to position a flash cure unit in any station and make on-the-fly adjustments from the main control panel.

 

Other features include Printhead Teach Mode™; front and rear micro-registration; tool-free adjustable rear screen holders; print-start/print-finish mode; and M&R’s exclusive patented Revolver Print Program™, which automatically operates individual printheads in programmed sequence and allows multiple flashing without losing a printing position. Challenger III is also compatible with pre-press registration systems like M&R’s Tri-Loc and Double Tri-Loc. With so many features and an unmatched level of flexibility, convenience, and control, Challenger III D is simply the finest automatic carousel textile press ever made.

Diamond Back Series
Diamond Back Series

Diamondback Series



The Diamondback Series is M&R’s line of versatile and highly-affordable entry-level presses. Diamondbacks are available with up to 9 printheads and in 8 and 10-station configurations. Maximum image areas range from 35 x 28 cm (14” x 11”) to 51 x 53 cm (20” x 21”). Diamondback presses feature servo-driven indexing to ensure smooth, accurate travel, and pneumatic screen clamps that facilitate rapid screen loading, hold roller frames without special adapters, and deliver excellent stability on a wide variety of screens. Each press has pneumatically-driven printheads; pneumatic squeegee/floodbar clamps with tool-free angle adjustment; pneumatic screen frame clamps; and pneumatic squeegee pressure regulators with pressure gauges on each printhead for exceptional control of print pressure. Diamondback squeegee/floodbar systems offer independently-set angle and calibrated pressure adjustments; front or rear print carriage stop position that allows operator to leave screens clear or flooded; independent squeegee & floodbar speed adjustments; and visual reference marks every 5 degrees to simplify squeegee/floodbar angle adjustments. Adjustable rear stroke length with tool-free adjustment maximizes print speed.

The control center features touch-screen displays with onboard self-diagnostics; an independent print-start/print-finish setting that automatically activates and stops printheads at the beginning and end of production runs; multiple (1-9) print stroke capability; multi-print in the up position; real-time production data; and a countdown program that indicates when the operator-set index count has been reached. Control panels on Diamondback C, Diamondback S, and Diamondback XL are mounted on pivoting arms for easy access. All presses include M&R’s patented Revolver Print Program, which automatically operates individual printheads in programmed sequence and allows multiple flashing without losing a printing position. Options include M&R’s patented Optical No-Shirt Detector, which automatically prevents the press from printing on empty pallets, reducing misprints and minimizing press stoppage because of improperly loaded shirts. Optional Foot Pedal Control allows indexing of the press using a foot pedal. The Skip-Shirt foot pedal feature allows operators to bypass empty pallets. Presses can be ordered in configurations that allow them to fit through a 79 cm (31") doorway. Diamondback C, Diamondback S, and Diamondback XL can be ordered with an additional printhead for placement at the unload station.

 

Diamondback L is a 6-color press with a maximum image area of 35 x 28 cm (14” x 11”) that can accept screen frames up to 51 x 61 x 4.5 cm (20” x 24” x 1.75”). Truly unique, it’s perfect for manual shops with limited space looking to break into automatic printing. At the same time, its high-speed servo and 259 cm (8’ 6”) diameter makes it ideal for larger shops interested in a press that requires little space—yet turns out tagless labels, pocket prints, and smaller-format images of exceptional quality. Diamondback L’s heavy-duty casters make it easy to move around the shop—or out of the way when it’s not in use.

Diamondback C is similar to Diamondback L in size and affordability. It has a slightly larger diameter of 284 cm (9’ 4”), but a correspondingly larger maximum image area of 38 x 41 (15” x 16”). Diamondback C is available in 6 or 7 colors, and it’s perfect for those who need to print larger images, but only have room for a very compact press.

Diamondback S was the first press to bring servo drive to the entry-level user. It’s available in 6, 7, 8 or 9 colors. It has a maximum image area of 41 x 46 cm (16” x 18”), and can accept screen frames up to 58 x 84 x 4.5 cm (23” x 33” x 1.75”). For those waiting for the right price on an entry-level automatic, the wait is over.

Diamondback XL combines servo drive, large image area, and affordability. Diamondback XL is available in 8 and 9 colors. It has a maximum image area of 51 x 53 cm (20” x 21”), and can accept screen frames up to 66 x 91 x 4.5 cm (26” x 36” x 1.75”). It’s the ideal press for large images at a low cost.
