Diamondback S™ is part of the Diamondback Series, M&R’s popular line of versatile and highly-affordable entry-level automatic screen printing presses, and it was the first automatic screen printing press to bring servo drive to the entry-level user. It’s available in 6, 7, 8 or 9 colors. Diamondback S 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”).

Diamondback S screen printing 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 screen printing machine 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.

The Diamondback S squeegee/floodbar system offers 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 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.

The control center is mounted on a pivoting arm for easy access, and features touchscreen displays with onboard self-diagnostics; a Maintenance Minder™ system that alerts operators when scheduled maintenance is due; an independent print-start/print-finish setting that automatically activates and stops printheads at the beginning and end of screen print runs; multiple (1-9) print stroke capability; multi-print without lowering the indexer; real-time production data; and a countdown program that indicates when the operator-set index count has been reached.

Diamondback S also includes M&R’s Revolver Print Program, which automatically operates individual printheads in programmed sequence and allows multiple flashing without losing a printing position. 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.

Options include M&R’s 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. Diamondback S can be ordered in configurations that allow passage through a 79 cm (31") doorway, and it can be ordered with an additional printhead for placement at the unload station, creating 7-color/8-station or 9-color/10-station machines for additional versatility. For those waiting for the right price on an entry-level automatic, the wait is over.
